What is the Benefit of a Responsive PHP, MySQL SPA, and Why Should I Use this Technology For My Website?
We know what this means: What you see on your desktop is rendered nicely, though differently, on your phone, and the difference is pretty smooth, even if you resize your desktop browser to mimic the behavior of your phone. The point is, the website works in all major browsers. In the interest of moving the web forward, we develop for HTML5 capable browsers, and set aside anything under Internet Explorer 9. I mean, the statistics show that less than 3% of internet users browse the web using a non-HTML5 capable browser. Look at this from w3schools:
|September||72.5 %||5.3 %||16.3 %||3.5 %||1.0 %|
|March||69.9 %||6.1 %||17.8 %||3.6 %||1.3 %|
|February||69.0 %||6.2 %||18.6 %||3.7 %||1.3 %|
|January||68.4 %||6.2 %||18.8 %||3.7 %||1.4 %|
and the details for explorer:
|2016||Total||Edge 13||Edge 12||IE 11||IE 10||IE 9||Older|
|March||6.1 %||1.0%||0.2 %||4.1 %||0.3 %||0.2 %||0.3 %|
|February||6.2 %||0.9%||0.2 %||4.1 %||0.4 %||0.3 %||0.3 %|
|January||6.2 %||0.8%||0.4 %||3.8 %||0.5 %||0.4 %||0.3 %|
PHP, MySQL and AJAX
Without the backend of PHP and MySQL or some other technology, AJAX is not really needed and your pages or views are really only static, and thus boring. Using PHP and MySQL, a website that interacts with its visitors is much more appealing and capable of dynamic content that updates on demand, like the Comments section at the bottom of each page of phpMyDEV.com. This particular site relies on interaction with you to show updated content, except for thie blog, as it is not a shopping cart or even a catalog with new items to display on a regular basis. A new article like this one will appear from time to time and I might add an entry to the blog, but this site is not a good example of what we do for you, the client. You provide us with what you want your site to do and we wave the magic wand and make it happen for you.
As the web moves further into the 21st century, and though it may seem that internet connections everywhere might make a Single Page Application seem less necessary, the simple truth that sometimes servers are slow, they are across the globe or your ISP is heavily congested, it is awesome to navigate a site that reacts almost instantly as you navigate. The other truth is that relatively few sites are taking advantage of this new technology as of this writing, and yours can be on the front of the train, making your visitors some of the happiest campers on the net!
