Evolve or be left out! Sounds to be true for websites too, right? If you are not following the current web development trends, you’ll soon be out of the race. Webmasters from around the world work and strategize hard to provide best-ever experience to the end-users. To keep your website/product on top and engage the users, you need to work out different ways.
Here are some of the top website development trends that some of the top and renowned websites have followed. Feel free to use them in 2019 (and beyond)!
Progressive Web Applications
A recently-conducted study showed that people spend nearly 85% of their time on mobile applications. Progressive web apps are webpages that look like mobile applications for users. One of the best parts about progressive web applications is that the user can access them even without internet when preloaded on the device. PWAs give a feeling of an application to the user rather than a website, and these load pretty fast as compared to a normal website.
There’s a lot more to Progressive Web Applications than just quick loading, better user experience, push notifications, etc.
AI or Bots
We’re talking about artificial intelligence and chatbots here, the popularity of which has increased manifold in the current times. Bots are crafted perform a particular task, and some chatbots are so good that they are capable to respond to basic and tough questions with great ease. Not only chatbots increase the website’s appeal, they also help generate more stable traffic. End-users are looking for quicker solution to their problems, which can be provided by chatbots. Chatbots also help increase the user engagement, thereby providing them positive overall experience.
Single Page Applications
As the name suggests, these are the websites with a single page. All the necessary information is provided on one page only. The end-user can surf across different sections for information (on single page) and doesn’t need to navigate to other/different pages, eventually saving their time.
Of course, they name says it all. These websites work best on smartphones. Touch controls and ability to fit on smaller screens allows quicker navigation. These also load much quicker! As the number of mobile phone users is expected to cross 5 billion by the end of 2019, mobile-friendly websites are surely the thing of future!
Voice Search Optimization
Voice search is another trend that can’t be ignored; and the best part is – it has just started off! More is yet to come. The trend of voice search can be easily ascertained by the increasing number of smart speakers every year. According to a study conducted by Gartner, nearly 30% of all the searches will be done without using a screen by 2020.
Early adopters will always stay ahead of the competition.
Low Code Development
Low code development includes easier and faster way to develop and deploy a website. It facilitates development of amazing websites quickly without the need for coding proficiency. Platforms like Google App Maker and Microsoft PowerApps have helped novice web designers develop excellent websites.
Low code development and the aforementioned platforms may the future for developing websites!
