  • Table Less Design is not the future it's the past keep up! - Active Webdezign
    site which relies on HTML tables But what are the benefits of switching to a site which uses table less design over more traditional methods and why should you make the jump sooner rather than later The Wonders of CSS Essentially Cascading Style Sheets CSS have long been available but have evolved significantly in recent times most notably since 2006 However it is proving hard to persuade some people that this is now the way to go as CSS used to be regarded as difficult to use and to maintain Thankfully this is no longer the case and CSS now provides the wise developer with a hugely powerful means by which to remove the clutter of HTML markup from a page and manage a vast range of attributes in one or more separate style sheets Whereas with pure HTML many attributes have to be explicitly and repeatedly asserted throughout a particular page CSS affords the designer not only far more freedom of expression but also accuracy and ease of use For use read also re use and the ability to make and propagate site wide changes in one place In its most optimised form a modern CSS driven design may require only a few lines of HTML on a given page the vast majority of the page being defined by reusable CSS elements Cutting down on HTML also has a resultant improvement on page loading speeds as there is far less code for a web browser to download This translates into shorter page load times and a higher capability to throughput traffic at a lower cost in the context of your bandwidth usage From a pure business perspective this reduces costs and improves sales and conversion rates SEO and Other Benefits of Table Less Design Depending on the browser used

  • Team building day at the Go-Kart track - Active Webdezign
    in Brentwood The Team building day started rather on the wet side and made for some fun spinning off the track and having some rather long skids and crashes The sun did finally come out on our second session after lunch and we managed to notch up som e impressive lap times Some of the lads did start to get carried away and we had some rather painful collisions I myself took a step back as Richard who had no sense of who or what was behind him was unpredictable in the lines he was taking and most times just rammed anyone trying to get by I was also unfortunate myself to have been sandwiched by two of the guys which has left me with a funny ankle still to this day The track had just had new 200cc carts this season and therefore the performance was quite outstanding Maybe because I m getting old or it may be that I suffer from travel sickness but by the 20th lap in the second session I had to retire to the pits before I would be sick inside my helmet The smell of the petrol fumes and the rattling of my bones was enough for me to retire to the pits for the day The other guys gave no way and raced to the full till the last minute Garry Davis our SEO and marketing person won the race and also the fastest lap time of the day but he was wearing his red driving shoes which apparently helps Rizwan came second and Matthias came in third on the podium Overall it was a great team building day which we finished off with our favourite food snack Kebab Rolls from the famous Lahore restaurant in Hendon on the way home News
