Are responsive themes a fad or is that just how we build websites nowdays? Looking through the latest themes on ThemeForest and from other theme companies, it seems that just about every theme is now responsive. Certainly the web will only become viewed on more and more different devices so it makes sense to build in some sort of responsive-ness but maybe targetting actual screen resolutions will be obsolete and we will make all layouts fluid.

Today’s post is a roundup of 30 ultra-clean business and portfolio WordPress themes that are all responsive, enjoy …
