The last few years saw the triumph of HTML5, the gradual maturity attained by CSS3, the launch of Rails 3.0, as well as the extensive popularity of @font-face selector (which is in fact a component of CSS3), amongst different other technologies. In other words, web technologies have become increasingly popular and a lot of developments have taken place in this field around the last decade, a phenomenon that is still going on. Here we bring to you the top 5 web technologies you can bank on in the years to come. These technologies have in fact proved themselves to be trendsetters, having a notable impact on development of applications and websites.
- Web Browsers with Hardware Acceleration Capabilities: IE9 (Internet Explorer 9) is tremendously swift as it makes use of hardware acceleration and DirectX 10 technologies, which has the potential to increase the capabilities and speed of the browser to a great extent. The IE9 platform provides enhanced support to the native audio and video capabilities of HTML5 development. Microsoft has brilliantly crafted this browser version to bank on the most recent GPU chips and multicore processors bringing in the latest hardware.
- Synchronized Clickstream Sharing: There are a number of ways to share information or other stuff that you are coming across in the internet. There has been a huge explosion of social media sites and other publishing systems available online, all the more due to the mass incorporation of share buttons coupled with the continuous acceptance of desktop clients, bookmarklets and widgets, which all turned sharing into a very convenient task. Synchronized Clickstream sharing is most likely to become the next step, so far as sharing personal online experience is concerned.
- NoSQL Databases: NoSQL is in fact a very casually defined term that describes database engines which usually do not operate according to the conventional relational database architecture that is largely being used. No SQL databases are considered as alternative databases, and some of the notable ones in this group include Apache Cassandra, Amazon’s Dynamo, Google’s Big Table, CouchDB, MongoDB, Riak and Voldemort. NoSQL databases can effectively handle big data, which is a significant benefit keeping in mind the increasing volumes of data that businesses need to store. Moreover, NoSQL databases are very economical as they make use of groups of low-cost commodity servers for handling the ever-increasing transaction and data volumes. The flexible data models make room for convenient change management.There is probably no culmination point for the developments taking place in web technologies. As innovative and original technologies are crowding the marketplace on a regular basis, more and more interesting technologies are expected to woo users with their exceptional features.
