PREFETCHING PAGES WITH HTML5

HTML5 introduces prefetching, the art of loading pages before the user requested them. In this post, we are going to discuss this technique as well as showing you some ready to use examples to drastically improve your website loading time.

The only thing you have to do is to place the following code with the <head> and </head>  tags of your page. The href attribute have to contain the url of the page to prefetch.

Adam Woodbridge's insight:

With the constantly evolving technological advancements made to computers these days, prefetching seems to be a very suitable future feature of web design. This feature will drastically improve the speed at which users can view pages as it predicts what pages the user will most likely visit in the near future and "prefetches" them for the user in advance.

Adam Woodbridge's insight:

The main methods we use today to create web sites, are not able to display information on every device which we use today; such as smartphones and tablets. With responsive webpages, all users on a huge variety of devices have easy access which is definitely the next level of Web Design.

Reading both this article and the article it responded to, I must say this is the one I agree with.

 

Not only is social networking rapidly taking over the world but so are the multiple devices a user owns. From smartphones to tablets, iPods to notebooks, PC's to laptops, one can find at least one of these in the everyday middle class home.

 

And as this article states, past instances of responsive design have worked successfully. From examples such as Obama's campaign to Disney, responsive design will make its mark in the web design and development industry in 5 to 10 years.

Adam Woodbridge's insight:

Web components have the ability to give web developers many extra tools to be able create their websites. e.g Custom elements allow web developers to add onto HTML elements and expand HTML's vocabulary. The only problem with web components at the moment is that they are not compatible across all major browsers, but as it catches on, features will be added to the incompatible browsers to allow web components to work on them.

Derek Phillips's curator insight, March 28, 2014 8:11 AM

To enable effective use of web components, project Polymer is progressing by making an application framework in which web components can easily be created and integrated into pages consisting of HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript. Upon browser software being updated in order to support this framework, it is likely that these web components will see frequent use.

HTML5: The future of the Web is finally here

HTML5: The future of the Web is finally here | Web Design and Development | Scoop.it
HTML5 is 'feature complete,' meaning the future of Web development is in place.

Via appMobi
Adam Woodbridge's insight:

HTML5 will provide a huge leap forward for the development of websites. It can eliminate the need for standalone apps and additional software. It is capable of displaying lightning fast videos and geolocation services which both previously needed applications or software to operate in browsers. Even though the language is not 100% completed yet, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari are already compatible with some HTML5 elements, which says a lot for the future of HTML5.

There is almost no doubt that html5 is the future of the web. Unlike flash it works on all devices and requires no 3rd party API's. Browsing on phones, tablets and computers will only get easier.

Web 3.0 ?

Web 3.0 ? | Web Design and Development | Scoop.it
Web 2.0 is the terminology assigned to define websites that have been refurbished from an earlier version of the internet.

 

Since most Web 2.0 features are free, websites such as Facebook, Wikipedia, etc. have developed remarkably fast and, as these sites grow, more innovative features are being added using new technologies. In fact, Web 2.0 will continue to grow in the future. 

 

The simultaneous growth of these new trends is outside the scope of Web 2.0’s definition and this is where the next generation of the internet will begin. The third generation of the internet – the Web 3.0 – will completely alter social networking.

 

‘Web 3.0’ is a network of information that can be routed both directly or indirectly using computers and includes television quality video, three dimensional reproductions of images, enhanced reality, man-made semantic barometers, and the all-encompassing sensors – wireless and broadband.

As computers and software progress, so does the internet. Millions of people use the internet everyday and it has to be improved constantly. Web 3.0 is the next level of internet which will be a greater tool than Web 2.0 is at gathering and producing information, and connecting people.

Liveti Liiveti's curator insight, March 14, 2013 10:30 PM

With the evergrowing usage of social networking and video sharing mediums by contemporary society, it was inevitable that such an idea as Web 3.0 would be brought up. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. have some form of impact on everyone's daily lives. I myself constantly check my Facebook news feed, sadly even once every 5 minutes. This article states that the idea of Web 3.0 'will completely alter social networking', this is something that I will anxiously await to see. How will the general public react to such alterations? Will it be too much of a jump?

 

Facebook changes, such as the conversion from profile views to timelines (http://mashable.com/2012/02/07/dislike-facebook-timeline/) and the introduction of Graph Search (http://maximizesocialmedia.com/social-media-agencygraph-it-facebooks-graph-search-the-future-of-social-media), have been met with some very negative reviews. Many have panned these changes as they have been so accustomed to previous versions.

 

Web 3.0 will completely alter social networking, but is that a good thing?

Due to the web rapidly grows in both users and content, it has, for many people, become a part of everyday life, whether it be in the workplace or for personal use. As a result of this, it is essential to improve the capability and resources available publicly through the web. This is being done within Web 3.0.

Adam Woodbridge's insight:

HTML5 storage, the importance of design in web pages and cross browser issues will become much more uncommon are all mentioned in this article. All of which are very important in the future of web design and development. Storing data in different web sessions is important for the improvement of the internet as users will be directed to information that is related to them. Having a clear and easy to follow design is very important for every website so users can find their way around. The compatibility of code into all web browsers is a must for websites so that they can reach a larger audience.

Derek Phillips's curator insight, March 28, 2014 7:16 AM

To accommodate for the growing user base, the usability of the internet is being enhanced, and this will obviously continue into the near future. This article has several examples of how this will be done within the near future, these being; the implementation of HTML5 storage, allowing certain parts of the website to be reloaded rather than the entire page, user interface improvement and the elimination of cross browser issues.

While most hail it the future of web development, the concept has received its fair amount of skepticism.

Via Incion
Adam Woodbridge's insight:

Responsive web design is a new way of developing web sites which allows them to be compatible with both computers and mobile devices. This technique could replace having to create multiple web pages specifically for mobile devices but there are still a few issues which have to be ironed out such as loading times, advertising, and information architecture. If these problems can be solved then this will definitely have a major roll to play in the future of web development.

Derek Phillips's curator insight, March 28, 2014 8:25 AM

Responsive design currently does have issues in implementation, allowing growth and stabilization within the near future. While this 'cutting edge' technology does have its benefits, it has almost none for a desktop device. The benefits are mainly consistent of how the website will be able to react with devices such as smartphones and tablets, both of which are expanding markets, this meaning that the use of responsive design is justified, as it will cater for these consumers.
