Web Development has advanced over a period of time
Web Development is a broad term which refers to the tasks associated with developing websites. This process includes web design, web content development, network security and other such tasks. Web development has witnessed changes over the past few years. With the introduction of new technologies, new ideas and concepts the industry standard have pushed web development to a whole new level.
• If we have a look at the websites from 2008 we would notice a standard font type for all the websites as the options were limited. The ease of user customization is helping individuals create their own font. The availability of a variety of fonts is a big deal as change is the new constant.
• Page loading was a major difficulty when using large images but now users look ahead to HD images. Although PNG offers a large range of images the user may encounter low pixel resolution of the images. This is where the EPS images have come into being as to minimize the distortion. EPS has vector imaging which tends to eliminate bad resolution and because they are compressed there is ease of loading more quickly. GIF is coming back into the market, mostly in the forms of animated pictures or memes as it is considered as one of the most effective forms of animation.
• The advent of social media platforms has become a necessity in everyone's life. Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter have made their place in the market. It is one of the leading platforms for dissemination of news and other viral content as well. The tweets and the posts carry information much faster than other mediums.
It has now become a compulsion for all the enterprises to have a social media strategy to strive in today's competitive world.
• HTML is not necessary to develop a website nowadays. All you have to do is to drag and drop a page builder and have a website up and running quickly. Meta tags and metadata are still in use but aren't that important now. High-quality content is much more important in search engines than any data that we type in. As the time is evolving one must make sure that he adapt and adopt these changes.
