The trends in web site designs are accompanied by constant changes as technologies and opportunities advance rapidly at the same time. The birth of the so-called web 2.0, made design tools, web design techniques and applications date quickly. Aside from creative mind and talent, software applications also play an important role in keeping your site or your client's website updated with all the latest trends in web design.
It is a new technique in web development that enables the web site to be more interactive. By the use of AJAX, a web page may increase its functionality, speed, usability and of course, the interactivity. It enables the web page to accept new small information without the need to refresh or reload the current display of the existing web page. There are many positive reasons why a web page needs an AJAX application. First of all, since AJAX does not call for the reload of all the layout and information of the existing web page, it would load more quickly.
Slow web page loading can definitely lose the interest of the current web page viewer. Another reason for using AJAX is its advantage on the part of the programmer. They may separate the format, style, data and functions to be used, resulting into a more organized program. Another latest innovation in web design application is the RIA or the Rich Internet Application.
This is a hard disk-space saver since it does not require the installation of any software program since it can run in web browsers alone. Many are choosing RIAs because of its richer functionality functions such as the simple drag and drop feature. The behavior of the web interface is also more responsive compared to the other types of web design applications.
RIA also creates balance between the client and the server. Just like AJAX, RIA also has an asynchronous communication wherein a page does not need to be refreshed or reloaded so that the new information can be seen. The new details are loaded in the web page without compromising the current status of the web page.
