Foundation 5 has their "ok" button on the left side of the modal-dialog. jQuery ui, windows & Mac (maybe more) has it on the right. Do they know something that everybody else doesn't? Or is this completely a subjective thing.

I'm not talking about [ok][cancel] vs [cancel][ok] that's been covered in depth. I'm talking bout about having the button left aligned vs right aligned.

I'm of course going to keep it consistent throughout my entire app, just wondering if there's an advantage having it on either side and why Foundation/Zurb chose the left.

Screen shots as requested.

Foundation has the "ok" button of their modal-dialog on the left, why?
