The Hot, The Cold and The Dying: A Look Back at Web Design Trends 2015
May be Star Wars attracted all the hype around Technoworld at Christmas, but what may can’t be alluded are the transforming web design trends happened throughout 2015. The London Event by Techcrunch known as Disrupt saw many shell-breaking ideas mostly in mobile web, witnessing that glorifying days of imagined web designing are near.
The Comebacks from the old technologies like HTML & CSS, hot topics like single page web apps and the death of web design elements like Fold and Sidebars has mostly filled the year 2015. Let’s see what else the pseudo coders have brought in order to make life easy for web designers.
What’s Hot: SASS, LessCSS and Much More…
What’s Dead: The Old General Inline CSS
Right from the early 2015, things have only gone intricate as the goal to make responsive and fast loading websites remains on it’s course. Various tools and techniques were framed to make life easier for designers. But, CSS was drastically changed a long way in such a short span.
For instance, change a property of one class and the entire linked thread will change itself resulting in chaos. So, every reference is needed to point only and only that element, which need effects. No such thing like inline CSS and general cascading elements can be found right in the source code. Everything become bundled, once Sass and co. came into act. The threads and nests started working apposite to the developers while keeping the least code to be fetched from the server side, making pages load faster.
What’s Hot: JS on Canvas With SVG
What’s Dead: Flash
Flash was great, infact Flash is the most adored content element on a web page that’s engaging. The eye catching animations and halo effects have amazed users for a long time. But the only thing i really itch for is the screen incompatibility and the degrading speed due to Flash. Fortunately with some smart integration, we have a replacement for it.
What’s Hot: Progressive AI Apps
What’s Not: Native Space Consuming Apps
I am very convinced, something big is going to get deployed like a sneak peek into our mobiles in 2016. The project started by Big tech companies known as progressive apps is already into action.
Let’s take an example, i use a website too often to book tickets for weekend shows. Once progressive apps comes into act, that same app will try to learn my regime and trend. It will collect which genre i watched the most, on what times and how did i rated them. The apps coming on our phones from an alien URL will know about us even more than us. There will be so much data accustomed to you that you can do everything offline and once you go online, your activities will go automatically synced.
Native apps are great, but what we will do with them, once the Progressive apps comes into picture? We will trash them.
