Web development has come a long way since its inception, it is rather hard to remember the time when technology and internet were first started to be used commercially and website development started to surface.

As a witness of this upheaval, here we are listing some of the major changes that web development services have undergone over all this time.

Not a long time ago there was a time when people didn’t even have an idea what google is. Yes! exactly can you imagine a world without google. Well, it was so, not a long time ago, all the search was done without Mountain View Search engine which was more like searching a needle in the heaps of data files. For every web search, you need to have the right roadmap to reach that particular website, for which you could also seek the help in directories. When Google actually made its debut, it was not even expected to become something as big as it is today.

Switch to JavaScript
JavaScript is a comparatively new framework, some of the other omnipresent frameworks of olden times are jQuery and Angular. We highly depend on our life on JavaScript, we as a web development company can say web development services thrive on JavaScript. Although, initially it was difficult to avoid the regular freezing of the system, today with the standardized script it is something developers cannot imagine to live without.

FrontPage was a part of Microsoft Office used as an editor. It helped in seeing the created codes by clicking the succeeding elements, with some setbacks such as the development of junk tags in the code.

Internet wonders need no introduction, maybe it would be right to say life would be nightmarish if internet fails us for a couple of days. However, not a long time ago having internet access was considered privileged. It was only available in form of WAP pages, slow loading pages, which had a non-user-friendly interface and everything opposite of what we enjoy on the internet today.

Web 2.0
If you are not familiar with what was web 2.0, let us help you. It was an old concept which was supported by PHP and helped in making the websites what we see as for today. They help you make your websites much more dynamic and interactive with users. It is a way that makes your websites as informative as blogs or forums or social networking sites where information from multiple sources were pulled and accessible to your users to interact efficiently with your website. With the evolution of technologies such as Ajax or Soap, it has been made possible to render websites via browsers easily.

Just like today PHP and MySQL were used in backend development, however back then they were undisputed leaders of it. With the advent of Python and MongoDB people are beginning to experiment more and more with the back-end technologies, however, PHP and MySQL are still used by website development company, other than that many lay their trust in Java and its efficient frameworks.

Flash was something really big before it got completely obsolete. Just before it got lost in the blue it was the technology that runs our web games, ads, and our websites. The aging technology was at the heart of many functions however, it has completely lost its purpose today. Some of the cases it is still used is in the videos and animation where developers are not using the Adobe Flash.


In hopes that you enjoyed your tour in the past, we can in end only conclude by saying the world of technology is dynamic, and no wonder what is trending and hot today will tomorrow be completely lost in the wave of new technology. Each technology has its own purpose and perk and no experience is the bad experience you always learn something from it. It is safer to say that despite we have a beautiful world of Angular, Django, our experience of the old technology just helped us in extending our knowledge.
