I will like to share the development trends for 2013.
Responsive Web Design
This form of design is mostly applicable for website development. In the recent times, there has been a significant rise in the number of Smartphone and iPhone users.
People prefer to use these gadgets rather than desktop and laptops. The design has to match up to the expectations of mobile user and differ to what is available on the desktop. You may lose potential users if you fail to fulfill their requirements.
It is a huge challenge for designers and developers to develop such a module having a multi-device design aspect. People not only expect mobile website but also want a website for television.
One more trend is HTML5. In the past, designers used flash players for attractive banner ads or headers. But after the introduction of HTML5, it was designers who mainly preferred to use it. Flash is preferably used in web games or desktop games and much more.
Placing a huge site is not a good idea but website should have good efficiency. User interface and user experience is important for a website.
