The Advent Of Real Time Web Apps
Real Time Web Apps have become the most preferred choice of the consumers because these apps give them an ease to interact quickly. It is better than the traditional web apps because there is no barrier between the client and the server. With a real-time app, the client opens up a connection directly to the server so either side can send a message to the other without waiting to be asked for it. If something on the server changes, it sends the data over the connection to the client. If something on the client changes, it sends it to the server and the server can decide whether other clients need to know about the change.
The Fall Of Flash
Being incompatible with mobile devices, flash has seen disregard from the audience. Though it has been into existence for at least 15 years but it could not win the hearts. It was used to display the animations on the websites and was a slow worker. So, Google barred flash and replaced it with HTML5 which is a web development language. Security issues, frequent crashes, iOS incompatibility and a lack of mobile browser support have also lead to the downfall of the flash. However, HTML5 enables the web developers to create SEO friendly animations at ease and provides a secure, low-maintenance, high-performance alternative.
Chatbots have gained a huge popularity. It is a kind of technology which offers users to interact with it over a website on continuous basis. This has brought a proper online support to the desk of the end users. With chatbot services, businesses are now able to offer seamless customer services to their potential customers.
