Future Concepts

PcHoriZon is always curious about where web technologies have been and are heading to. We are already about 5 years in to the era of what is commonly referred as Web 2.0, the online landscape is still rapidly evolving.

Alhamdulillah, we are very well focusing on the future of World Wide Web. Regardless of where the next few years lead us, it is certain that the effort we put now into creating a Web 2.0 site will be rewarded in long-term.


Let us elaborate it a bit:

Multimedia is the Future Website
Due to the rapid and cost-effective increase in both computing power and speed … Multimedia has become synonymous with the web. The widespread adoption of broadband internet access is making it possible to deliver rich, high-quality video and animation on the website. Spending a lot of time focusing on squeezing the data as much as possible, is pretty much off now.


Content Aggregator, not the content provider

The early type of the World Wide Web was primarily a “one-way” flow of information through site, usually contained “read-only” materials. This method of presenting information has already become obsolete. The way of utilizing the content over the web and interact with it has changed dramatically over the past few years.


The  information we need to find online has transformed Web into a collection of sites that act as not only content providers, but content aggregators, where the content is not the result of a large up-front investment by few, but the result of an ongoing and interactive process between sites and their users.



Device Independent

The new web standards like XHTML, CSS and RSS feeds are the main hallmark of Web 2.0 and are easily adapted for a variety of platforms (desktops, laptops, mobile devices, screen readers, etc.).

It ensures that content is accessible regardless of how it is retrieved, even if the display methods differ from device to device.  


Architecture of Participation

The characteristics that have contributed to the rise of Web 2.0 have become so ingrained in our online culture that it’s hard to imagine that many of these things didn’t exist in widespread fashion even 5 years ago:

  • Community and Collaboration in Real Time
  • Networking (Social and Otherwise)
  • Cloud Computing
  • Blogs
  • Wikis
  • RSS Feeds
  • Web Applications with open APIs (Twitter, Facebook, Flickr)
  • Technologies such as AJAX, Java, JSON and XML


It shows us that modern WWW allows users to do more than just retrieve information, it allows them to own the data and exercise control over it. Web 2.0 sites encourage an “Architecture of Participation” that promote users to add value to the application as they use it.


Utilize Web-based Content Management. 

The future of the web lies with the ability of non-technical end users to manage and update their content through a web interface that is both platform independent and browser agnostic.
