So you are planning a new web design project and considering one of the world’s two most popular design frameworks to help you create a fully-responsive and modern site outline. But what’s better: Twitter’s Bootstrap or Foundation by Zurb? The answer may lie in what you are trying to accomplish.
But to start, you should understand what a framework is and what it can do for you. A framework is a collection of tools for creating websites and mobile applications. (Both frameworks in this infographic are responsive and can lead to beautiful websites.) Framework packages include files and folders of standardized code (HTML, CSS, etc.) as a basis to start building a site.
