Three Ways to Improve User Experience on Your Website

 The World Wide Web today is an expanding universe of interlinked web pages and web apps, filled with text, images, videos, and interactive content. Though the average user appreciates the rich and immersive experience provided by the modern web, he or she is neither aware nor very interested in the technologies that development companies scramble to make all this possible.

 
The message is clear. When your clients visit your website, they expect a smooth experience, not a lecture on the powerful technologies that you have used on the website. Thankfully, a new generation of web development tools makes it easier for you to provide a rich experience to your prospects and users.
 
CSS Shapes
 
Web pages have always been a collection of rectangles inside other rectangles. Though designers could use CSS to create geometric shapes, there was no way to affect the content inside a shape element until Adobe came up with CSS Shapes in mid 2012.
 
The CSS Shapes specification equips enterprise web solution providers with a new tool to control content flows. Now, you can set your text flow inside and around arbitrarily complex shapes. It is more sophisticated and certainly something your users will appreciate.
 
Flat Designs
 
Fancy, 3D images may look impressive but, a lot of the time, they serve little functional purpose.
 
In recent years, many web application development company designers have been experimenting by drawing upon 1940s Swiss designs. They are removing drop shadows, gradients, textures, and all other elements that give an image a three-dimensional look. It creates minimalist, efficient, functional, and attractive websites.
 
Flat designs’ popularity has exploded. Microsoft and Apple have embraced it in their new operating systems. It is time your enterprise adopts it because it will provide a more natural browsing experience to individuals using Windows 8.1, Windows 10, or Mac OS Yosemite.
 
Web Standards
 
There are so many bells and whistles you can add to your website to improve user experience. It is advisable not to do it because the World Wide Web Consortium is slow to support new technologies.
 
A rule of the thumb is to stick to the features that improve user experience and are web standards compliant. Failing either test should spell a clear “no” because it can jeopardize your website rank on search engines and antagonize users whose browsers fail to display your website correctly.
