With Android Lollipop, Google released it's unique Material Design which I personally like a lot. I changed my website design to it just recently. But there are tons of Material Design for HTML out there! Which one should you choose?

Best Material Design framework for HTML

Bootswatch Paper

If your website runs with Bootstrap or you'd like to create a website with Bootstrap, I'd recommend Bootswatch Paper. It's really easy to add it to your existing Bootstrap website, because you just have to change the Bootstrap CSS file. It does not feature the best material look and feel, but because of it's simplicity it's great. Also, because it runs on Bootstrap, you have all of the Bootstrap features, including modals, navbars, rows, buttons, form elements, tooltips and many more.

Materialize CSS

Materialize has a bit better look and fell. The CSS classes feels like they copied many things by Bootstrap, but that's okay, it makes it easier to learn. Also, they brought in many cool ideas like Parallax, that lets the background image scroll slower than the rest of the site or build-in image viewers, which is just awesome. But there is just one big downside: the documentation. The documentation is not very well sorted. A good example is this: I want to know how to create a navbar. Where am I looking? Probably in the Components directory. But it's not, it's in the JavaScript section. Why the heck is this in the JavaScript section?! Also, many code examples just don't work! But maybe I'm just too picky...

Material Design Lite

This framework is a bit like Materialize. It is made by Google and looks a bit tidier and more "professional" than Materialize. It has tons of components that are well documented. Also, it has much more animations and they are nearly the same as on Android. Obviously, because Google uses it in almost every modern web based project.

With those three frameworks, you should have a good selection. Of course, there are many more out there, but that are the frameworks I worked with and I personally like.
