The web is changing and evolving rapidly. So rapidly, that we are not able to grasp and comprehend this change. Here we are coming up with sophisticated software and technology to assist front- end development and change the total look of websites. The various rules, theories and fundamentals of design are also adapting themselves to create the perfect interface for the user.
The Web 2.0 is emphasizing on making big and smart changes to the way how websites are designed today. Although it doesn’t refer to anything technical, it has worked upon clearing the inconsistencies between the web browsers. Today websites are more compatible with browsers and their features can be experienced in a crystal clear manner. Today, website design focuses on clean, intuitive design. With greater functionality, content is presented in a smooth way. And the credit for this goes entirely to frameworks. Frameworks like Django are doing their jobs nicely to give us amazing websites like Instagram and Pinterest.
Another noteworthy feature of Web 2.0 is Social web. Whenever we visit any website, we are required to sign up or login in. But now, that process is simplified through using popular social networks as a method of signing up or in. Options like sign up with Facebook or Login in with Google are a common site nowadays. That is exactly what the Social Web does. It integrates your website with all social platforms and plugins for ease of accessibility of the user.
The aim of Web 2.0 is to make things more simple and connected on the web. And many more features will be developed in 2017 to make the web more awesome.
So according to notable web designers and web developers in the world, these are the 5 things which will be prominently seen in 2017 and in near future-
1. Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality is booming in all areas of learning and education. Be it web design, fine arts or marketing, virtual reality is shaping up to become the ultimate thing in user experience. Now the 2D web will become more interactive, more immersive and more awesome. Imagine that you are shopping online for an exquisite chair. Now instead of just looking at its picture, you will be able to actually see the chair and get an idea about its exact dimensions. The UX of the website will transform completely due to virtual reality.
3. Pageless design
Another interesting concept which has been developed and encouraged in 2016 is Pageless design. What it is? To explain it in simple terms, instead of designing a website having too many pages and links, why not design a website having a single page? That’s the real challenge. To compress and shorten your website’s content, design into a single stunning page. That’s it. Nothing less, nothing more. On the other hand, the functionality of the website must be massively improved. But this technique promotes simplicity and elegance. Also responsive design and effects like parallax scrolling can be applied beautifully in this design.
4. AI websites
Artificial intelligence has encompassed all domains of science technology, so why leave website development behind? Now, the process of making websites is becoming so easy- peasy thanks to AI websites. Websites which create, manage, upgrade all by themselves. You don’t have to spend any time on back-end development or any of the technical things. The only thing that you are required to do is focus on creating the right content for your website.
5. Adaptive design
Adaptive design is way different from responsive design. While responsive design focuses on fluidity and flexibility, adaptive design focuses more on control. In adaptive design, we have six basic screen widths starting from 320 to 1600. One can start working from the smallest width and slowly create more complex designs for larger widths. This design first identifies the device, its features and then produces the appropriate layout for it. So it is preferred where the designer can control and define the changes in the layout and in the features of the site.
So that’s all for today. This technology will be implemented to make web development less complicated and more fun. And to focus more on creativity and innovation. All these advancements are taking place to make the web and websites a cooler place to create and showcase amazing stuff.by Siteflu
