What is difference between Bootstrap 3 and Bootstrap 4?
Mostly bootstrap 3 and bootstrap 4 are similar. But some kind of functionality and methods are not the same in Bootstrap 3 and Bootstrap 4. Version 4 is more powerful then Version 3 and lovest versions. Here we have listed some kind of changes which is different from version 3.
Here we have to draw attention to these differences:
1. CSS Source file
Here one of the biggest changed in both versions is CSS source files. Bootstrap 3 using LESS. and Bootstrap 4 using SCSS.
2. Grid Tiers
If we look into the bootstrap 4 There we can see 5 Grid system(xs, sm, md, lg, xl) and opposite to bootstrap 4 in the bootstrap 3 we can see only 4 Grid system(xs, sm, md, lg). In bootstrap 4, the XL Grid system is newly updated.
Images also changed in the bootstrap version 4. Like in the old version we can see a class whose name “.img-responsive” is renamed in the bootstrap version 4 from “.img-responsive” to “.img-fluid”. and “.img-thumbnail” also removed from bootstrap version 4.
4. Dropdown Structure
Here one another changed in dropdown structure between bootstrap 3 and bootstrap 4. In the bootstrap 3, dropdown will create by using <ul> and <li> tags. But in the bootstrap 4 this structure was changed as a <ul> or <div>.
In the table structure, we can see a major change. if you can use the bootstrap 3 table structure then you have to add .table-responsive class in the table’s parent <div>. But if you are using bootstrap 4 then you have to add this class in the <table> tag.
Here we have only included just major improvements but there are also other small improvements. These all are mostly used day by day developments. Improvements other than this are just a waste of time.
