The internet is changing once again, with the evolution of new mobile products many people are looking at alternatives to standard web platforms. Among websites, WordPress is one of the most common topping 17% of sites. This titan of the web industry is built to allow for easy use, dynamic visual flow along with interactive blogging and search engine optimization . Bootstrap, a new and growing website style, works to make the compatible for any device. While both run exceptionally well, they each have unique qualities that can be great for any business website.
WordPress is good for anyone, especially if viewed from a large screen system, such as a tablet or computer. Themes for WordPress are more conceptual and visually appealing than Bootstrap. It can have a more 3-dimensional curvature than it’s counterpart. Bootstrap is much flatter and basic-looking than WordPress. The high-end design of WordPress makes it use up more memory when loading the pages of the website, which may be slower when loading on a phone or other mobile device.
Bootstrap, while equally as good, is best suited for smartphones or small-screen devices. Bootstrap’s dynamic design allows for the page and text to change size based on the viewing window. This is so that you do not need to side-scroll during the use of the site. Any pictures, text, or buttons on the website move in and out as the window size changes so that it is impossible to side-scroll, but scrolling up and down is imperative to the use of the site. Bootstrap uses less memory to load than wordpress does, so it could be better for loading on a mobile device that would take longer to load than if it were on a computer with better connection.
