Our Philosophy

Our Development Goals | Web Accessibility | Up-To-Date Technologies

The one word which best describes Internet technologies is "change". The Internet is in its infancy compared to established business computing applications such as word processing or databases. (For example, did you know that web pages couldn't display pictures until as recently as 1993?) As a result, software and hardware companies are working hard to rapidly create new and better tools. Keeping up with all these changes can be a formidable challenge.

By choosing us as your web developers, you eliminate that worry. For years we've methodically monitored new developments in Internet technology, and have learned a lot about cutting through the hype. We can help you carefully evaluate whether the newest "gotta-have-it" technology is truly useful or simply an expensive fad.

Our approach is intentionally not bleeding edge. When a new web page technology is first introduced, it typically takes 1-2 years before the average site visitor will have browser software that can interpret it. Unless your company specifically aims at a high-tech audience, a conservative technical approach is usually in your best interest.

On the other hand, some of today's new technical toys will evolve into tomorrow's essential web tools. Part of our service to you includes keeping you apprised when we see this happening. By carefully weighing information from user studies and other sources, we can help you gauge just the right time for upgrading your web presentation.

Never doubt that we get just as excited as anyone when new possibilities become available. If an improved technology can be implemented quickly without affecting page reliability, you'll find us in the vanguard. For instance, we began coding XML-compatible web pages long before most web developers had even heard of XML. Now XML is an industry standard, and has been integrated into most major business software.

With our balanced approach, you can relax and take it easy. You'll save time and money, and your site will be kept up-to-date with your visitors' software capabilities.
