Last updated on 19 March, 2024 by Web Jeevan

When it comes to being a developer and designer you usually always reach a crossroads of which CSS framework should you use? There are so many Front-end frameworks, but two of the most commonly mentioned ones are Bootstrap and Foundation. 

Here is a comparison between Bootstrap and Foundation:

In order to make a conclusion which framework is better, you have to decide which one suits your requirements. In order to decide you must go through the features that each has to offer. With the given features currently listed, you must overlook that Foundation is quickly evolving and new updates are released frequently. Simply put, Foundation offers a slightly more complex, but a do it yourself style approach that will create something more unique and custom. Whereas Bootstrap allows for easy creation of simple yet elegant websites, with very little knowledge of CSS and JavaScript. Any CSS framework you chose will drastically simplify the web development process and provide the necessary foundations to build an amazing website.
