Microsoft Silverlight

Over time, the global network is increasingly filled with sites that represent various web services with a rich dynamic interface. Such resources are based on technologies, thanks to which developers can significantly extend the functionality of their projects and enrich their user interface with elements typical of powerful desktop applications. These technologies include the Silverlight software platform discussed in this article.

This fairly young system was developed by Microsoft and includes an add-in for a browser installed on the user’s machine. The range of application of this platform is quite wide, and adaptations of its plug-in make resources built on its basis accessible to a wide range of users.This technology is a direct competitor to the well-known Adobe Flash, which at one time was very popular among web development. Although in most cases, developers prefer to use Flash technology to implement various kinds of effects in the interface of their projects, Silverlight has several advantages that allow you to use more powerful programming languages ​​and work with multimedia file formats that are not supported by Flash.

Trends and trends in web site design 2017

It was originally planned to place a translation of an English-language article on web design trends in 2017, but after studying various sources, we decided to slightly change the concept of this note. The thing is that over the past month on the Internet has been published a lot of thematic materials about current trends in web design, and opinions, as they say, have diverged. On the one hand, this is logical, since different authors have their own assumptions about what will be relevant for sites in the current year. On the other hand, these forecasts are very subjective.

In general, we have collected all the options and made up something like a digest of web design trends for 2017. Let’s start with the most popular trends, which are noted by many experts, and gradually move on to more “unique” ideas. By the way, if you have additions and thoughts on the topic, feel free to share them in the comments. Plus, we recommend reading about the trends of logos in 2017 – also a useful post.
