Keelhaul the div!
The Mothership is a HTML5 base theme that offers a workaround to Drupalís obscure love for wrapping everything in 2 divs and slapping on 3 CSS classes wherever possible.
Like other blank canvas base themes (eg Stark, Framework), this theme will NOT make your site look pretty. Unlike the others, it will do more to help you clean up the mess of excessive markup that Drupal provides out of the box, offering settings to optionally remove CSS classes in the markup.
Why do it change so much in Drupal
Because Drupals markup is a PITA to work with.
We like clean mean markup & css that you as a themer wants - not what Drupal thinks was good for you 5 years ago.
