Bootstrap vs Foundation: Which Framework is best for Web apps?

I've heard differing opinions on which framework is best. Some people say that Bootstrap is not as efficient & semantic as Foundation because it uses too many classes and only supports LESS.

What is the best framework for building web apps? Or is there another approach you recommend?

Good read! It almost makes me think that I should just build something from scratch to provide a more unique look & feel.

I have been using Zurb Foundation for more than a year. I have even created step by step tutorials on using zurb foundation 5 framework using 3 real time examples.

I am not saying foundation is better than bootstrap, I have used bootstrap before. I just feel like using foundation is easier for my projects compared to other CSS frameworks.
