The Best is / has yet to come?

WHICH is correct – “The best is yet to come” or “The best has yet to come”?
According to some friends, both are correct but used in different contexts. Please help.
– K.B. Ong

Both are correct, mean the same thing and can be used in the same context.
However, “The best is yet to come” sounds a little more poetic than “The best has yet to come”.
This may be because the former has echoes of Robert Browning’s famous lines: “Grow old along with me!/ The best is yet to be”.
