Jonathan Follett's curator insight, March 18, 2014 10:09 PM

Minimalism is the future of presentation. Have less to distract the user is vital when attempting to get a point across. With the added technology behind HTML5 minimalism is only looking better with more and more websites becoming single page applications (SPA) the browsing experience is only becoming easier/cleaner with time.

Derek Phillips's curator insight, March 28, 2014 6:08 AM

Seeing as a year has passed since this article was created, much of this has already been implemented by many notable websites. As mobile web-browsing was, and still can be, rather difficult, a need of minimalistic websites emerged. Through the use of grid based design, typography, white-space with appropriate colour, and an evident focal point of attention, a website that is easy to use while still containing the required information can be created. This trend that began in recent times has set the standard for website usability. Hence making it likely to be utilised in coming years for new websites, and those being updated.

Tablets surpass smartphones in driving global Web traffic | The Future of Web Development | Scoop.it
For devices that hit the market just three years ago, they're doing pretty well, generating 8 percent of all Internet traffic. Read this article by Dara Kerr on CNET News.
Josh Newman's insight:

The reason for the increase in tablet internet usage can definitely be attributed to the fact that tablets offer much more screen real estate than mobile devices while still delivering the "mobile interaction" kind of web browsing experience, be it watching videos, viewing pictures or simply just general surfing.

The Battle Between The Web And Mobile Is Ending — Oh, And Mobile Won

The Battle Between The Web And Mobile Is Ending — Oh, And Mobile Won | The Future of Web Development | Scoop.it
A triumph of good design.
Josh Newman's insight:

This article raises a good point about the rapidly blurring line between desktop and tablet computers. With many kinds of hybrid computers emerging on the market recently, I think it's important for web designers and developers to start thinking about how their sites should be displayed on mobiles and tablets first and use aspects of these designs in their desktop counterparts. This is, from a screen size point of view, working from small to large.
