How we’ve changed since 2001.

In the first few paragraphs of this article, I saw the reference to Netscape and laughed. I thought, there is no way the field hasn’t changed since 2001. Reading further, I was surprised to learn that a few things have indeed stayed the same. HTML provides the basic layout, CSS provides the style, and of course, IE refuses to die. 

Okay, yes it was a shock that in the article they mention the current standard, CSS3. However, even with my most basic knowledge, I know that the field of web design is far from static. Just because things haven’t changed dramatically, doesn’t mean they haven’t developed. Heck, HTML 5 is about to become the new norm. Yes, some techniques still work, but there are plenty of options out there that didn’t exist before. If you think about how far the web has come since it’s inception, that shows just how tremendous the change has been. Yes,  you can still create entire websites using tables, but that is not necessarily the most efficient way.
