With a CSS framework, we have a completed CSS stylesheet, and we only have to code the HTML with accurate classes, structure, and IDs to set up a web page. It has several advantages like cross browser compatibility, faster coding, customisable. We can also find ready to use templates online that we can directly use in our project. Let's take Bootstrap, it is most used css framework. Bootstrap website contains many ready to use templates and examples that are responsive too. So it becomes easy for us and also complete our work quickly 😃.

I understand, but in this sense to me it seems a bit like buying a theme for wordpress and configuring it

It depends on your preference!
Every one has their own choice, some love to use natural css and some love to use library frameworks.

I agree, but in addition to the choices there are also the needs 😊 I also use the frameworks when I need them, it's just to understand everyone's thoughts on the matter
