Focusing on User Experience

The internet has come of age. The world wide web is everywhere. Where at one time corporations and individuals quickly bought up domain names to secure a presence on the web, information dissemination and consumption on the internet is becoming more sophisticated and complex. The ideas and interests of science quickly gave way to the dominance of commerce on the web, and web designers adopted various technologies in attempts to improve the quality and aesthetics of communication. It soon became apparent that with attempts to overcome the limitations of the medium and a growing reliance on proprietary technologies, there was a need for standards. The Web Standards and open source movements have changed the way websites look and work, with greater emphasis placed on the accessibility of information and the quality of the user experience.
