The future for GavickPro

We’ve been at this a long time; it seems like a lifetime ago that Gavick put out its first, flash-based theme back in 2007. At the time it was just a couple of people trying to put their hobby to good use; it wasn’t really expected to grow quite as much as it did. Over time our team and experience grew; flash-based websites went the way of the dodo as our focus shifted to creating modern Joomla! and WordPress themes that used all the emerging concepts and technologies such as CSS3, HTML5, responsive design and parallax effects; things move quickly in the online world, so there was always something new to learn.

Responsive Web Design – necessity or fashion

Most new, but conscious client wants a mobile version of their website. A few months ago most of web designers have suggested building a separate mobile template.

Google Defends Users on the Wild, Wild Web

Here is a sobering statistic: On a daily basis, Google identifies about 9500 dangerous websites (nearly 300,000 per month!) — triple the number found only two years ago. Threats detected include sites which distribute malware and those involved with phishing for personal information. Niels Provos, a member of the Google security team, recently announced this through their blog.

The Evolving Web User

The popularity of certain websites, particularly news-related sites, has been on the decline. This is largely due to the proliferation of websites competing for attention. I believe the number of users regularly using a single news or information portal is not declining, but rather that visitors are not committed to remaining for very long at the same information site.
