Bootstrap has been around in the digital world for as long as in can remember. But since the human mind is so fickle and we as a race are so lazy, we keep looking for better technology in order to make life simpler for us.
This is the reason why there is an upgrade to every software and a new version of every gadget is released soon after its previous version. Bootstrap is no different. What was initially begun as a simple framework has today evolved as one of the world’s most popular one. Today even version 188.8.131.52 has been released.
Following is the list of prime differences between Bootstrap 3.0.1 and Bootstrap 184.108.40.206.
No more substitute Support for IE7
The biggest and most noticeable change is the fact that the framework no longer offers a fallback style for IE7. Not that I am surprised, because even jQuery let it pass in their latest version update. I guess moving on from older browsers to new ones also is a part and parcel of the evolution of the web. I am quite sure we are moving towards a future where the focus would strictly be mobile development.
Fluid by default
The new Bootstrap version happens to be absolutely responsive and fluid. It is a default feature now, understanding the demands of the present day scenario. This is mostly because having a separately erected responsive site is not a practical solution. Of course, when the concept had just started, it sure did make a lot of sense, but not anymore. The .row-fluid and .container-fluidclasses have now been replaced with many classes that offer a lot more freedom to the users.
This is the latest approach taken up by the new Bootstrap. This is a fresh perspective where the app is built from ascending order by beginning with the smallest and continuing to develop it until the desired size and look is reached.
In other words, developers first build the web app for the smallest of cell phones, then for the larger ones, then for the tablets, then for the laptops, then for the desktops and then for any medium bigger.
This practice lends exceptional fluidity to the app. So, instead of omitting stuff for the application you work in an additive mode which allows for more room for creativity by first creating a working skeleton and then moving on to beautifying it.
On the whole, the general changes might seem to be very minor but the overall usage and handling of Bootstrap has bettered in a large way. A developer can tell you how even the smallest of bug fixes contribute to making significant changes. However, there is no doubt about the fact that bootstrap has been and quite possibly will always be one of the most favourite frameworks for building applications across the world. The best way to manage your Bootstrap requirements is to catch hold of a sincere and reliable developer.
