Trejdify design update

Trejdify has always been responsive (the content looks good on the phone, the tablet, and the traditional computer). But as the number of devices grow, it's difficult to know if it really looks good on all devices. If you have the resources, you can buy/borrow each new device and install all different browsers on each device. Your office will then look like this:

The alternative is to outsource the code that makes the website responsive to someone with resources. I've decided to use Bootstrap to make sure Trejdify looks good on all devices. I've earlier considered using someone else's code as "cheating," but have now changed my mind since Bootstrap is used by organizations like NASA. According to Wikipedia, Bootstrap was developed at Twitter as a framework to encourage consistency across internal tools. Before Bootstrap, various libraries were used for interface development, which led to inconsistencies and a high maintenance burden. In August 2011 Twitter released Bootstrap as open source, and can be downloaded here: Bootstrap. Make sure to download version 3. This is the result:
