In today’s time, you need to stay updated to maintain your visibility and sustainability in the e-world. The traditional web development no longer holds the scope in the modern era. Apart from info-graphics, HTML5, embedding videos and responsive designs, there are a number of web viral trends that need to be taken care of. Here are some latest and viral web-development trends that are disrupting the web-development landscape.
1. Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP)
Most of the leading websites, when searched on mobiles using Google, have a small lightning bolt (⚡) symbol next to them). This symbol means that the websites are fast loading. The pages of the website would load at a blink of an eye as compared to other websites. These are called AMP or Accelerated Mobile Pages. The AMP was introduced by Google in October 2015 and received an overwhelming response from all the major websites such as Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and WordPress. If your website is AMP compatible, then it will rank better in the search engines also.
2. Progressive Web Apps (PWA)
Progressive Web Apps eliminate the cross-platform issues faced by the netizens. Most of the users faced problems while accessing the same information that is available on the website to that on the mobile app. The PWA technology combines the best features of the website and gets them converted into an app-like feature for rich user experience. With PWA enabled website, the users won’t be able to differentiate between an app and the website.
PWA enables the website to be accessed in offline mode as well. Hence, boosting the overall performance delivers a staggering app-like experience.
3. Single-Page Website
As the name suggests, the entire website is designed into a single HTML page. When the user clicks on any navigation or menu option, the focus gets shifted to that section. This means rather than loading a new fresh page, the information is displayed right on the home page.
4. Website Push Notifications
Similar to app notifications on mobile devices, website push notifications notify the users working on a website from his desktop or mobile device. The notifications are sent even when the website/browser is closed. The notification area on the user’s device displays all the related notifications. The main advantage is that all the users who have subscribed to the website can remain updated regarding the updates sent by the website.
5. Flash to HTML5
There was a time when the flash enabled websites were gaining popularity. But, there were many flaws and limitations associated with using flash and the most common one was platform dependence. With the inception of HTML5, things started changing. The robust features offered by HTML5 eliminated all the limitations of Flash. Now the websites could be easily tracked and optimized for delivering better user experience. Apart from UX, HTML5 also strengthened the security aspects.
6. Multilingual Websites
According to a renowned blogger, Neil Patel, his web traffic got boosted by 47% after starting a multilingual blog that supported approximately 82 languages. A website that supports content in multiple languages is called a multilingual website. By having one such website, new opportunities are unveiled across the globe. Now people from various backgrounds can explore your website. Contact your digital marketing associate for more options on how to start a multilingual website.
7. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)
Most of the upcoming websites that are used to search nearby banks, schools, restaurants, café, etc use this technology. It is usually done using the Smartphone’s camera. Using AR technology, a user can superimpose a computer-generated image in the real world. This accelerates accurate local searches. The game Pokemon Go is a perfect example of Augmented Reality.
Virtual reality or VR is an entirely different concept as compared to VR. Here there is no connection with the physical world. The virtual world is presented in such a manner to make it feel like a real world.
8. Artificial Intelligence (AI)
You would have seen that most of the websites listing products and services have chatbots embedded in their websites. These smart and AI-powered chatbots are the first point of contact for the customers. Webprenures have been optimizing their websites for making them compatible with smart assistants such as Amazon Echo and Google Home.
9. Cloud Computing
Traditionally, all the data, hardware, software and other applications were stored in the on-premise devices or companies. This increased the infrastructural cost of the companies. So, to avoid all this, cloud-based services were born. Using cloud-services the users need not buy expensive software or hardware. Rather, they just need an internet connection and an internet-enabled device. The cloud services are web-based and can be accessed 24/7 and remotely as well.
The users don’t need to worry about backup solutions, database processing, data storage, installing office suites, etc. All the updates are automatically handled by cloud operators. The user just needs to take monthly subscriptions and can, in fact, upscale or downscale the subscription as per usage and requirement.
You need to stay in the competition and strive for excellence to survive and sustain in the e-world. So, it becomes very important to showcase an extraordinary presence in the digital world. Take your website to new levels, by these incredible web-development trends.
