Over the years, web pages have developed from simple platforms to complex and sophisticated web pages, which allow access to videos, photos and different applications. With the introduction of new technologies, web developers have been given the ability to develop useful, interesting web experiences, which the user enjoys on a daily basis.
The web pages were initially developed to provide online access to static information and material. Most of this information was impersonal and was of the professional type. Interaction between websites was less, as opposed to the case currently. This then caused a development of web browsers that have increased dramatically over the years. Common browsers include internet explorer, opera mini and Mozilla Firefox.
New standards have been developed to enhance the user experience. A standard such as Web 2.0 has affected the design patterns and business models that developers create. According to Satzinger (2012), most people use browsers to access the Web. Additionally, other people use the web constantly in their employment. Further, the Web is used primarily as the environment through which new software applications and systems are deployed (Satzinger, 2012). Most of the applications being developed today are being designed to be used to access the internet.
