Web development trends 2020

Here are some web trends for 2020:

Responsive web design in 2020 should be a given because every serious project that you create should look good and be completely usable on all devices. But there’s no need to over-complicate things.

Web Development in 2020: What Coding Tools You Should Learn article gives an overview of recommendations what you learn to become a web developer in 2020.

You might have seen Web 3.0 on some slides. What is the definition of web 3 we are talking about here?
There seems to be many different to choose from… Some claim that you need to blockchain the cloud IOT otherwise you’ll just get a stack overflow in the mainframe but I don’t agree on that.

Information on the web address bar will be reduced on some web browsers. With the release of Chrome 79, Google completes its goal of erasing www from the browser by no longer allowing Chrome users to automatically show the www trivial subdomain in the address bar.

You still should target to build quality web site and avoid the signs of a low-quality web site. Get good inspiration for your web site design.

Still a clear and logical structure is the first thing that needs to be turned over in mind before the work on the website gears up. The website structure for search robots is its internal links. The more links go to a page, the higher its priority within the website, and the more times the search engine crawls it.

You should upgrade your web site, but you need to do it sensibly and well. Remember that a site upgrade can ruin your search engine visibility if you do it badly. The biggest risk to your site getting free search engine visibility is site redesign. Bad technology selection can ruin the visibility of a new site months before launch. Many new sites built on JavaScript application frameworks do not benefit in any way from the new technologies. Before you go into this bandwagon, you should think critically about whether your site will benefit from the dynamic capabilities of these technologies more than they can damage your search engine visibility. Well built redirects can help you keep the most outbound links after site changes.

If you go to the JavaScript framework route on your web site, keep in mind that there are many to choose, and you need to choose carefully to find one that fits for your needs and is actively developed also in the future.
JavaScript survey: Devs love a bit of React, but Angular and Cordova declining. And you’re not alone… a chunk of pros also feel JS is ‘overly complex’

Keep in mind the recent changes on the video players and Google analytics. And for animated content keep in mind that GIF animations exists still as a potential tool to use.

Keep in mind the the security. There is a skill gap in security for many. I’m not going to say anything that anyone who runs a public-facing web server doesn’t already know: the majority of these automated blind requests are for WordPress directories and files. PHP exploits are a distant second. And there are many other things that are automatically attacked. Test your site with security scanners.
APIs now account for 40% of the attack surface for all web-enabled apps. OWASP has identified 10 areas where enterprises can lower that risk. There are many vulnerability scanning tools available. Check also How to prepare and use Docker for web pentest . Mozilla has a nice on-line tool for web site security scanning.

The slow death of Flash continues. If you still use Flash, say goodbye to it. Google says goodbye to Flash, will stop indexing Flash content in search.

Use HTTPS on your site because without it your site rating will drop on search engines visibility. It is nowadays easy to get HTTPS certificates.

Write good content and avoid publishing fake news on your site. Finland is winning the war on fake news. What it’s learned may be crucial to Western democracy,

Think to who you are aiming to your business web site to. Analyze who is your “true visitor” or “power user”. A true visitor is a visitor to a website who shows a genuine interest in the content of the site. True visitors are the people who should get more of your site and have the potential to increase the sales and impact of your business. The content that your business offers is intended to attract visitors who are interested in it. When they show their interest, they are also very likely to be the target group of the company.

Should you think of your content management system (CMS) choice? Flexibility, efficiency, better content creation: these are just some of the promised benefits of a new CMS. Here is How to convince your developers to change CMS.


Here are some fun for the end:

Did you know that if a spider creates a web at a place?
The place is called a website

    Pakollinen Google Consent Mode V2: toimi ennen 6.3.2024

    Googlen Consent Mode V2 tulee pakolliseksi Euroopassa, mikäli haluaa jatkaa datan keräämistä Google Analytics ja Google Ads -järjestelmillä.

    Consent Mode välittää analytiikan ja mainonnan järjestelmille tiedon seurannan suostumuksista, joita käyttäjät ovat antaneet evästekyselyssä. Ilman sitä uusista EU-alueen käyttäjistä ei tallenneta tietoja Googlen alustoille 6.3.2024 jälkeen. Tämä uusi vaatimus perustuu Googlen tulkintaan eurooppalaisesta lainsäädännöstä.

    Consent Mode V2 pähkinänkuoressa
    Consent Mode V2 on pakko ottaa käyttöön verkkosivuston datan keruussa, jotta mainonta säilyy tehokkaana ja datan kerääminen Googlen alustoilla on ylipäätään mahdollista.

    Uusi versio Consent Modesta edellyttää, että kaiken kerätyn datan mukana välitetään suostumustila analytiikan ja mainonnan järjestelmiin. Välitetyn suostumustilan perusteella Google päättelee kerätäänkö dataa evästeiden kera vai anonyymisti ilman evästeitä.

    Tämä ei tarkoita, että Googlelle pitäisi lähettää anonyymiä dataa ilman käyttäjän suostumusta, mutta tieto käyttäjän suostumustilasta on pakko lähettää.

    Uusi Consent Mode -vaatimus ei muuta evästekyselyyn kohdistuvia vaatimuksia, mutta myös evästehallintatyökalun täytyy olla jo kunnossa Consent Moden käyttämiseksi. Tämä on kuitenkin ollut vaatimus jo pitkään.

    Advanced-vaihtoehdossa kaikkien tapahtumien tiedot lähetetään Google Analytics ja Google Ads -palveluihin riippumatta siitä, onko käyttäjä antanut luvan seurantaan.

    Tässä mallissa ‘luvattomat’ tapahtumat lähetetään anonyymisti ja ‘luvalliset’ evästeidentifikaattoreita käyttäen.

    Siihen liittyy kuitenkin kaksi haastetta:

    Juridisessa mielessä ei ole mitenkään taattu, että tämä olisi laillinen menetelmä tai pysyisi sellaisena laintulkintojen kehittyessä. Google käyttää eri termejä ja lupailee anonyymiyttä, mutta dataa kuitenkin kerätään. Se ei muutu.
    Voidaan kysyä, onko tiedon kerääminen edes anonyymina oikein ilman käyttäjän suostumusta?

    Vaaditut toimenpiteet
    Jos et tiedä jo varmasti Consent Mode -asian olevan uusien vaatimusten mukaisessa kunnossa sivustosi analytiikassa, tulee se tarkistaa digianalyytikon toimesta ja tarvittaessa ottaa käyttöön Consent Mode ennen 6.3.2024.

    Huomioi, että vähänkään vanhemmat analytiikka-asennukset eivät todennäköisesti ole uusien vaatimuksien mukaisia, vaikka ne olisi tehty aikansa vaatimusten mukaisesti täysin oikein. Consent Moden ensimmäinen versio julkaistiin syyskuussa 2020 ja uusi V2 marraskuussa 2023.

    Meta plans to deprecate the Facebook News tab in the US and Australia in early April 2024 and stop signing deals for traditional news content in those countries — Meta Platforms Inc. is winding down its news feature in the US and Australia, part of a broader shift away from the category for the social media giant.

    Meta to Wind Down Its News Feature in the US and Australia

    Meta Platforms Inc. is winding down its news feature in the US and Australia, part of a broader shift away from the category for the social media giant.

    The Facebook News tab, which lets users see headlines and stories, will be “deprecated” in those two countries in early April, Meta said in a blog post on Thursday. That means the company is withdrawing support for the feature, but news won’t disappear from the site.

    “People will still be able to view news on Facebook in feed in these countries, and publishers will continue to have access to their Facebook accounts and pages, where they can post their news article links and content,” Meta said in the post. The change also doesn’t affect existing agreements that Facebook has with news publishers, at least until those deals expire.

    Social media are how people experience the internet. But platforms are no longer very social—and hyperactive videos, fake news and private group chats are on the rise

    The end of the social network
    As Facebook turns 20, social apps are being transformed

    Facebook may be turning 20 on February 4th, but it is just as much of a magnet for controversy and cash today as when it was a brash, break-everything teenager. On January 31st Mark Zuckerberg, the social network’s founder, was harangued by American senators over the spread of harmful material. The next day he announced another set of glittering results for Meta, Facebook’s parent company, which is now valued at $1.2trn. Yet even as social media reliably draw vast amounts of attention from addicts and critics alike, they are undergoing a profound but little-noticed transformation.

    From a few stories on Business Insider the HTML itself comes down to about 75 kB compressed, so for their approximately 200 million visitors a month they’d churn through 30 TB of bandwidth for the HTML assuming two articles read per visitor.

    This comes down to 11 MB/s of HTML, which can be generated dynamically even with slow interpreted languages, or as [Thomas] says would allow for the world’s websites to be hosted on a system featuring single 192 core AMD Zen 5-based server CPU. So what’s the added value here? The reduction in latency and of course increased redundancy from having the site served from 2-3 locations around the globe.

    In this scenario [Thomas] also sees no need for Docker, scaling solutions and virtualization, massively cutting down on costs and complexity. For those among us who run large websites (in the cloud or not), do you agree or disagree with this notion? Feel free to touch off in the comments.
