Würzburg, May 11, 2012 – Noxum GmbH, a specialist for content management and editing systems, Supports with its web technology modern concepts like responsive web design for the creation of contemporary and sustainable web pages. Current technological trends toward HTML5, CSS3 media queries, jQuery and the Mobile Web are considered.
Device-independent web design
A device- and browser-independent website development offers itelf as a means to support all website visitors on the great number of stationary and mobile devices used. "Responsive web design" offers an appropriate solution to implement a single website for various operating system concepts. A website created with this concept adjusts itself dynamically to the requirements of the user, that is, it adjusts to the display size and other device properties. At the same time all essential elements remain visually and functionally available.
Multiple benefits of the one web idea
The concept of responsive web design makes it possible to forego the development of specific websites for tablets and smartphones. Companies can thereby save significantly in development time and costs. The use of the latest technologies pays off in terms of the performance and user friendliness of the website. The user experience is optimized and web responsiveness accelerated by minimizing requests between the browser and the web server, and by data compression, embedding of image data and caching etc.
Navigation structure and content concept
Solving the website navigation is often one of the greatest challenges of a responsive web design. For one thing a solution needs to be found to use the available space in the most sensible way. On the other hand the navigation structures for the various operating systems must be convincingly implemented. Thereby the differences between the navigation with a mouse and the touchscreens of tablet PCs and smartphones must be remembered.
A user-friendly navigation can be attained and supported by means of appropriate content concepts. In fact it is not easy to present extensive navigation on mobile devices in a user-friendly manner. For example, for this a story concept presents itself: multiple pages are presented in their thematic relationships. Navigating within stories can be done by panning or flicking on the smartphone screen. The contents can be displayed on most devices in a clear manner and are easily found.
