    I've built many sites with bootstrap until I couldn't handle the code bloat/LESS anymore. I've used foundation for two recent client projects, and am really disappointed by how unsupported the majority of their components are. The project itself seems to be losing focus.

    Excited to see consolidation of a few similar components into cards, It's a great UI pattern. Also cool to see the inclusion of a flexbox grid. I think the most exciting thing is the filesize and overall cleanup that has been done. Great work to the team!

    Also, great job releasing the three 'official' themes. Great way for you all to capitalize on your hard work with this project. http://themes.getbootstrap.com/

      Yeah using foundation in our last project felt like we were using a dead project. Ive always liked how easy its been to customize bootstrap, you you can end up with a pretty lean project if its not your first time.

        Yes! I feel this way too. I keep struggling to make Foundation's JavaScript components work with my projects (either because they're buggy or just low quality) - to the point where I just don't trust those parts of Foundation any more and source those things from Bootstrap.

        I do love Foundation, but at this point it feels like progress is just happening too slowly - and if it does come out, It'll probably only support IE11+. I appreciate Bootstrap v4 for including IE9 - that was a nice suprise.
