Web was originally conceived as a generic version of the application – the lowest standard application that can run anywhere, but such applications are limited in their functionality.
, while App offers an alternative way of executing code in the background, caching data for offline use, using push notifications, and launching other functions, these are things that websites can’t do.
Web but did not sit still, it is a dramatic change to deal with the threat of app. Roost CEO Casey Haakenson, who has 18 years of experience, believes that 2015 will be the most exciting 1 years in web for a long time, and he predicts that Web will have some of the following major trends in 2015:
2, sensor access gives the page the ability to perceive the user’s environment. For many years, web pages have limited access to users, usually with only the user’s screen size and browser type. But now all kinds of W3C standards provide ambient light, microphones, cameras, and other sensor data. This allows the website to jump outside of the page and have more information.
3 and push notifications allow the site to stay connected to the user – even if the user closes the browser tab of the web site.
The combination of
4, ServiceWorkers, and push notifications can also produce very important symbiotic effects. Push is not necessarily to notify the user, or you can execute arbitrary ServiceWorker code. For example, we can imagine such a scenario, a program you are interested in a new set out can trigger pushed to a ServiceWorker, let the content pre loaded into the buffer, so you go home by bus when you can browse offline.
, however, some might worry about the browser’s ability to do so. However, this worry is not necessary, the use of these functions need to pass the permission check, when in use will also have visible instructions. For example, when recording with a microphone, the icon on the label will show the recording symbols so that the user can know or cancel at any time.
Another important trend in
is the security of web. New features like ServiceWorkers and push are too powerful, and HTTPS is needed to protect users and owners. HTTPS also >
