Bootstrap 4 is based on flex modal for grid system and supports all latest browsers including Internet Explorer 10 + and iOS 7+. Things which were difficult in the previous version are now much easier with flexbox grid like equal-heights columns and vertical centering. Bootstrap source is now SASS (Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets): a CSS preprocessor which enables you to use things like variables, nested rules, inline imports, mixins and much more. It helps you to keep things organized and allows you to create stylesheets much faster. It also helps you to break large style sheets into partials.
Bootstrap 4 supports all the major default browsers for mobile phones/devices. However, some proxy browsers (such as Opera Mini, Opera Mobile’s Turbo mode, UC Browser Mini, Amazon Silk) are not supported.
