Latest Web Technologies

Latest Technologies and Techniques

Every week on the internet sees the introduction of new software, new platforms, new versions and revisions of existing frameworks and the like – it’s really hard to keep things current and up to date. The internet is our business and we keep our eyes and ears open because we need to know what’s around the corner, we need to know what’s growing and what’s dying a lingering death. Saxon Websites™ recognises that there is little point designing a website on a platform that will not be supported in 6 months time, it’d be plain irresponsible.

Our aim for every website that we build is to make it ‘future-proof’ – so that all you need to do is update the content periodically in order to keep the website fresh. We constantly strive to make your website load faster (work more efficiently) and to have the infrastructure in place to display the type of content that is ‘in-vogue’ – both of which contribute to giving your customers and clients a richer and fuller experience when they visit you. Saxon Websites™ doesn’t have a ‘can’t do’ attitude – on the contrary, we love it when a client approaches us and says ‘I would like my website to do this’ ... because in most cases we have already built that feature into the core of the website.

In practice, our clients do not actually see the latest technologies that we use or the latest techniques that we employ because generally both go on behind the scenes, coded into the core of the website. What they do see though, is instant results when they want something to happen and what they do see is their website rising in stature whilst others are falling by the way-side with little or no intervention. If you have done a modicum of research, you will have heard about things like HTML5 and CSS3 along with terms like JavaScript, Ajax and Ruby - we utilise them all and ensure that your website is fit for almost every eventuality... allowing you to concentrate on your business.

So What's happening out there then?



CSS3, the latest technology to aid website fluidityThe World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) have finally released CSS3 after the 12 year over-haul of CSS2.1. Now, all major browsers are HTML5 compatible and have adopted the new CSS3 features - giving hope to struggling web developers. Combined, these two powerful tools, can create fantastic solutions for modern websites needing to cope with the explosion of differing screen resolutions as the mobile markets come online. Both CSS3 and HTML5 are still not completely 'signed off' and there will be further releases in the future as pockets of 'recommendations' become finalised and ear-marked for general release. An exciting future for sure and a timely response to the many problems facing designers derived from the rapid advancement in mobile technology.


HTML5 consolidates some of the latest web developer techniquesW3C have now modularised CSS and in CSS3 there are currently in excess of 50 modules that we can count - each addressing different subjects of styling and layout. Without doubt, the most important of these modules is 'Media Queries' which quite simply allows website designers to apply conditions to a style sheet to accommodate fluidity.

HTML5 and CSS3 are merely two of many technologies that are evolving and adjusting to the problems presented by the modern internet. Understanding these changes and picking the right solutions (of which there are many) is something that we at Saxon Websites™ do well. All new websites designed by ourselves are built specifically to our clients instructions and will include all of this new technology and lots more besides - we only use current and up to date web technologies.
