What is a Web Application?
A web application is a software program which is accessed remotely via a web browser
over the internet or intranet. In this sense a web application is like a website, but a web application
provides much more functionality. It is dynamic, and generally allows users to login using an account, view and manage
content, and carry out useful tasks like e-commerce.
Good examples of web applications are Google mail, online banking services, customer web portals, e-commerce shops etc.
Frameworks and Technology Used
Glint Media's website development team build web applications in ASP.NET, Microsoft's own website development framework and the choice of many big business applications. We also keep an eye out for
complimentary technologies like jQuery, AJAX, HTML5 and web services which compliment .NET and allow us to produce bigger, bolder, more stylish web applications to get more customers through your door.
HTML5 Website Development
HTML5 is the next major revision of the HTML standard - the markup language that your web browser uses to
render your favourite web pages. There's plenty of great new features for modern web browsers (IE 7 users stop reading now!), including
canvas animations to make your website stand out from the crowd and native embedding for video and audio. These additions make it much easier to create and handle multimedia and graphical content on your website.
Get in touch with Glint Media to find out how we can leverage the power of HTML5 on your website.
