The web is constantly changing and evolving. And as new technologies arrive, old ones are retired or improved. It is very important to be aware of the latest events and apply them in your projects. Here is a summary of the current trending technology in this field:
Progressive web app
These are basically web applications or websites that look like mobile applications, especially when it comes to functionality and design. It is a combination of native mobile app and web browser features to provide the user with an app-like experience, which explains its growing popularity. The PWA was proposed by Google a few years ago and has several benefits. Some of which are instant loading, push notifications, and increased conversions, and the ability to add the PWA app to the user’s home screen.
The rise of chatbots
The customer is king, the customer is always right! There are enough aphorisms to show how valuable and important the customer is. Businesses are always looking to improve customer service and keep them happy. With chatbots, they can do it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. These chatbots can answer common queries, direct users to the correct information, and even schedule appointments, among other tasks. Making it a very useful and efficient feature.
Importance of the motion UI
A website should be simple, easy to navigate, and most importantly, intuitive. This is where the motion user interface, originally popular for mobile applications, comes into play. By using this, you can create a well-designed and functional site. This is accomplished through the use of animations, floats, headers, and transitions, among others, to differentiate your website from your competitors.
The buzzword today is blockchain. You can associate it with cryptocurrency. But, basically, it allows the collective storage of data and information that is distributed in thousands of computers around the world. This means that it would be nearly impossible to destroy or hack a blockchain and the data is public and available to anyone who needs it. It can be used for decentralized file storage, supply chain auditing, and more. This technology is booming and finds many applications in web development.
Single page websites
Our attention span is low. Too many things are happening, too many things that demand our attention. Given the circumstances, it’s not surprising that the new trend in websites requires them to be single page. This means that you will find everything you need on one page that is easily navigable, of course! You can access different parts of the page by scrolling or clicking links. These types of websites work well on mobile devices. In addition, the cost of development, design and hosting is kept low due to the simplicity of the design.
Change is constant, and this is especially true in the world of web development. It is imperative that companies take the initiative and stay current.
