It is an undeniable fact that web development has gone through a lot of makeovers and has witnessed a lot of developments in various aspects. The requirement of the end user has changed, and the developers have also adopted various techniques to cater to their needs.
Even though there is a drastic development, there are a lot of mistakes that will occur during the development process. At the end of the day, we are humans, and it is impossible to be flawless. The thing about web development is that even simple mistakes can have a huge impact. Hence it will be a lot better if we can avoid some common mistakes in the web development procedure.
Using non-responsive design
Using website builder tools
There are a lot of companies that offer some amazing website builder tools. Even though the site looks great, the biggest and the most important issue is with the backend tools. Every addition that is made in the site has a lot of coding lines which will make the site slow down. There are good possibilities that some of the critical functions might get affected. A better option, when compared to using website builder tools, is to either use content management services like WordPress or Joomla.
Using outdated HTML
Nostalgia has its values but not when it comes to web development. If you are in this field, it is mandatory for you to keep up with the trends and keep yourself updated. Using the older version not only increases the number of lines but also causes some issues in the layouts in some of the latest browser updates. Using the latest version of the tool is more like a thumb rule when it comes to web development. If you consider HTML, in particular, it is better to use the latest version of CSS3 for content layout designing.
Cross-browser compatibility issues
We all know for a fact that there was a time when Internet Explorer was the only browser available. That is not the case now. There are a lot of browsers in the market like Chrome, Firefox and a lot more. So before launching, it is mandatory that proper testing is carried out and make sure that it functions in the targeted browsers.
