Principles of Web Design

Low end device design


Most web designers are tech saavy and own the latest computer hardware and software. They make sure that they have installed the latest versions of the popular browsers. However, this is not the case with most users especially people who are older. When they buy a computer they intend to use it as long as it works. They use the browser that comes pre-installed and are not even aware of the latest upgrades. As web designers we should always keep in mind the technical sophistication of our users and their equipment. Hence, we should not always design for the latest computers, monitors, or browsers but typically for a device and softwre that us three generations older. in this manner, our website becomes user friendly and usable by all users.
