As much as it gets difficult for you to keep up with the new coding frameworks being introduced every year, you have no option but to acquaint yourself with the same. As a webmaster looking forward to get a professional website developed, make sure that the Web Development Company hired by you is actually aware of the leading trends shaping the future of web development.
HTML5: Its significance is only going to expand
Ask the most seasoned developers out there and they will tell you that HTML5 remains a more refined solution for online media playback than flash. Needless to say, it is being increasingly used by coders and developers to make user-friendly professional websites. It is not only suitable for all the leading web browsers but can also be used for offline web caching and code cleaning. HTML5, in short, is the future of web development.
Flash Is Obsolete
Leading browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla have both ceased to support the Flash plugin and this is “signal” enough to relegate Flash to obscurity. No more is it used frequently. Those who are yet to figure it out are definitely running way behind in the digital race.
Adobe is proactively discouraging webmasters from employing flash for their websites.
Compatibility with Mobile
This one needs to be mentioned without fail. Mobilegeddon remains the official stamp of authority as far as responsive websites are concerned. In 2016, digital gurus have gone on to suggest that there’s soon going to be a time when Mobile SEO as a term will cease to exist. The traffic earned from mobile devices has increased by leaps and bounds in recent years and that time is not far when Mobile SEO is not going to be differentiated from “conventional desktop SEO” but is rather going to assume the shape of conventional SEO itself. Terms like “Mobile web” and “Mobile SEO” will cease to have a separate identity. Mobile is going to be mainstream SEO and web.
The Importance of SSL Encryption is only going to grow
It has to do with financial transactions – mainly. If your website is directly dealing into financial transactions then you would definitely want to implement SSL certificate. SSL stands for “Secure Sockets Layer”. It is employed to encrypt the data between web server and the web browser of the visitor so that mischief makers are not able to decipher the encrypted data.
So… this is what you should take care of
Is the web development company hired by you aware of these trends? If not, you would definitely like to reconsider your decision of having them on board at the first place.
In order to ensure that your development needs are duly fulfilled (in compliance with the changing demands) you need to find a credentialed web development company with the due experience of serving the biggest of names in the market. Kindly ensure that you are investing due time in surveying the market properly. Getting a hang of the background of the web development company is necessary. Make sure that you are only accessing services of a reputed and experienced developer. This will only happen when you are conducting a thorough research.
