Html5 unfortunately cannot work on its own or without the use of some other tools such as CSS, JavaScript, and of course, Bootstrap. While Html5 is the markup language to build web pages, bootstrap is the front-end tool kit and the framework to design and build web pages with more convenience and elegance.

The combination of both Html5 and bootstrap offers developers powerful control to develop web pages with wonderful designs and dynamic attributes. The integration of both, results in outstanding web designs, with consistency, convenience, flexibility, comfort in coding (less and simple coding) and web applications with the characteristics of playing without connectivity, faster web surfing and responsiveness.

One big advantage of integrating bootstrap with Html5 is the ability to build responsive designs that can be adaptable for PC, tablets and mobile phones at the same time. The fusion of both assists developer in building liquid designs with one coding for all the devices. There is no need to code for PC, tablet and mobile phones separately saving both time, and effort. This convenience has led many developers to accumulate their dynamic designs with responsiveness according to the need of the time and the consumers. While one works with the basics, HTML5,  the other, Bootstrap... strive to embellish the design with attractive features, providing a sense of achievement for the developer and the pleasure of use to the user on the other end.
