When it comes to Flash, there are some conflicting views. There is a misconception that that Flash web pages are not seen by search engines and can’t be indexed at all. Others reckon that Flash sites are not user-friendly and load for ages.
If you are one of those individuals who’ve overlooked and ignored Flash as a viable CMS, I hope this post will make you look twice.
Whether theming an e-commerce website or doing a full-scale build, one of the most important parts in the whole process is the planning. Planning a build before you start can sometimes seem like a bit of a tedious and time-consuming task, but not only will it make everything run a lot smoother, it will also save a lot of time.
You may be wondering where you even begin, and that’s what this article will help you answer.
What we do on the Web changes every day. The web development industry is constantly evolving. While we may not be able to tell the day-to-day changes while it’s happening, it’s easy for us to look back to the past few months and see that a lot of things we do now are much different than what we’ve been doing before.
There are two prevailing issues in the fight between Apple and Adobe.
The first is whether or not Flash should be available in the Safari browser running on Apple’s mobile iPod, iPhone, iPad platforms.
Microsoft — the company we all love to hate — is turning over a new leaf. This is true, at least, with its latest iteration of Internet Explorer, the company’s web browser.
IE — if you’ve already forgotten — was once a great web browser in the mid-90s, usurping the spot of the dominant browser of that decade: Netscape Navigator. The browser was a market innovator once.
IE9, by the way it’s looking right now, is a vast improvement to the browsers Microsoft has been putting out as of late.
The last decade has seen a remarkable level of attention occur online. Social networks have popped up, designed to connect people based on every possible interest and need; service-driven companies and process-based web applications have been developed to take the place of traditional software.
Finally, a growing number of web companies have done their best to ensure that web services—whether essential or not—are accessible virtually anywhere with an internet connection.
Web developers need somewhere to host their projects, and when looking for hosting, there are several options.
Shared hosting, where you share a server with lots of other users and have very limited control over the server. Dedicated hosting, where you have complete control over a server; a very flexible option, but requires you to manage the whole server, worry about hardware failures and backups, and is typically expensive.
