Bootstrap 4 vs Bootstrap 5

Ahmad Youasf

Bootstrap is a free framework that is used to create responsive websites using a mobile-first strategy more quickly and easily. It is open-sourced framework. Colors in Bootstrap 4 are restricted.

Custom form controls are included in Bootstrap 5. The form controls in Bootstrap 4 used whatever presets each browser offered. Because of its bespoke design, the form controls in Bootstrap 5 will have a much more uniform appearance and feel across all browsers.

From that point forward, no new features will be added to Bootstrap 4. Bug fixes, security updates, and content updates will continue to be applied.
