Yes, the current trend is responsive this, responsive that. But those themes are slow, bloated, and take an eternity to load and display. There’s also no way to search for anything but responsive themes, and they’re really starting to get in the way.

This is probably a really terrible place to request this, but could we get a search function for non-responsive crap? Better yet, an advanced search that handles basic operators (so we can search “shiny -responsive -wordpress -construction -404”

Thanks in advance :P

Yes, agreed. Also responsiveness does not affect page loading speed. You can create a responsive grid with no more than 200 lines of CSS code (and 200 is probably more than what’s needed to).
Retina ready themes will load slower on retina devices, but this thread is only about responsiveness.

Agreed. There is nil performance hit when it is done right. The only con is the extra time required to build/design out to different breakpoints.
