Google Chrome For The Web Development Industry?

Many who work in the web development industry hold a long festering hatred for Internet Explorer, simply because it doesn't work in the same way that all the other browsers do and requires all sorts of hacks in order to get a website to work. It seems, however, that developers have a new browser to loathe - and it is known as Google Chrome. Whilst the good news is that Chrome is a lot more compatible than Internet Explorer, it is still full of bugs that lead developers to tear their hair out in frustration.
Here are some of the most annoying features of Google Chrome that must be overcome when completing web development work:
  • Pop-Ups- There can be no denying that blocking pop-ups is a handy feature of Google Chrome - unless, of course, your website requires pop-up functionality in order to work (in login forms, for example), because Chrome won't display them. Instead, users will need to drag the pop-up's title from the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
  • Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)- The product of lazy web development practices, Google Chrome will only certify a valid SSL page by displaying the padlock icon in the URL bar is all of the elements on the page are served via SSL.
  • CSS- Unfortunately, Google Chrome is known to ignore CSS styles that have been applied to certain web page elements. One way of getting around this is by using the "first-of-type" keyword (which all other browsers, barring Safari, will ignore) to get the page to display correctly.
  • Error Pages- The web development team behind Google Chrome have come up with some pretty clever error pages (using phrases such as "Aw Snap!"), but this does not mean that the issue is with your website. Chrome is known to crash on some computers due to system settings and other applications; the best way to determine with this is the case is to try some other well-known websites and see how they work.
As you can see, there are a number of reasons that many in the web development industry would find Google Chrome annoying (especially as they still have to create websites that are compatible with the ever-frustrating Internet Explorer on top of this). Fortunately, one of the good things that Chrome has going for it is that you can easily report any bugs that you come across, as Google is always looking for feedback that can make their browser better.

Need of Internet Application Development

Internet applications are now becoming a necessity. There was a time when having a website was considered just a luxury and status symbol. No one needs to have a website to get an entry to the virtual world of internet. This is attributed to the penetration of internet not only in the offices but also residences. It is because of competition and investment involved that the businesses want to make the best use of not only the website but also the internet. One of the ways to use the internet for the constructive development of business is through internet app development.
http://www.isummation.com/isummationcms/assets/Image/rich-internet-applications.pngSome of the prominent factors that have influenced the need of internet app development are as follows.
Many businesses have branches at multiple locations on the globe. The head quarter needs to be connected with those branches. The head quarter office needs to know what is going on in the branch offices and should receive the reports of the daily activities or operations conducted at the branch office. The internet app can facilitate coordination of different branches as well as facilitate filtration of data accessible to the different levels of personnel in the management hierarchy of the business. The management needs to be updated with the information in real time. This is only possible when the business gets an internet app that fits its needs. The reports need to be generated in a uniform format. The internet app in this situation is needed to streamline the administration and operations being conducted at all the branches.
The website of the company may have become old. The internet app development is necessary for rejuvenating the website. The adding of the internet application can increase the utility of the website. When an appropriate internet application is bought there is hardly any need to redesign or rectify the current website. This saves a lot of time and money of not only the website owner but also the buyer. Thus the utility of the website can be dramatically enhanced. It is also possible that the company might have undergone large changes and now offering a range of services and products that were not offered earlier.
The utility of the internet applications is only subject to the connection to the internet. It also depends on the downloading speed. If the load size of the internet application is too much it is possible that the internet application may take a longer time to download and operate.
As the technology evolves and the expectations of the buyers from the sellers increase, the level of customer service is also going to increase. For this the internet application development is going to become necessary. If you have an idea to increase your business, it is better to hire the services of a professional internet application development service provider.
