The Internet is a complex amalgam of protocols, computers, switching networks and programs. As new technologies for the Internet appear, some of them become standards, some enjoy limited acceptance and compatibility, while some disappear as quickly as they appeared.
As each new version of browser from Microsoft or Netscape appears, there are features included that weren't present in the previous versions. While it's exciting to use the latest technology, it's not always necessary or appropriate. If a site is designed to utilize a feature present in only the latest browsers, it's likely that it won't display properly in older browsers, essentially rendering that feature's function not accessible to a large number of your visitors.
It's important to use the right tool for the right job. If you were hanging pictures on the wall, it wouldn't make sense to use a pneumatic framing hammer; a small hammer would actually do a better job.
At PlanetLink, we are able to communicate these complex concepts in a way that you can understand, even if you don't have a technical degree. We rely on the appropriate use of technology for your project to ensure maximum compatibility and ease of use for you and your visitors.
