    I've been a very long time user of vBulletin. Now I'm thinking of moving to XenForo. Just my 2 cents.

    You can expect the same features of vBulletin but with modern standards and not-so-crappy codes ;) It's developed with Zend Framework which is a very popular PHP framework. Once you use it, you will never come back to vBulletin for sure. vBulletin 5 is a joke! They don't care about customers now whereas Xenforo is a very active community.

    Xenforo is better imo than vB, both in terms of security and code

    Yup! I didn't mention about the security. vBulletin compromised it and as a result millions of vBulletin forums were hacked before some months and still they are getting hacked. They are no longer a safer solution now.

    Go the XenForo, more faster, more secured, less resources.
