Bad News for Internet Explorer fans, if any! Microsoft's almost 20 years old Web browser with a big blue E sign might soon be a thing of the past. With the arrival of Windows 10, probably by next fall, Microsoft could come up with its brand new browser that’s more similar to Mozilla's Firefox and Google's Chrome, but less like Internet Explorer (IE), according to a recent report published by ZDNet.
Google is ready to give New Year gift to the Internet users, who are concerned about their privacy and security. The Chromium Project's security team has marked all HTTP web pages as insecure and is planning to explicitly and actively inform users that HTTP connections provide no data security protections.

Many of you will wonder now reading the title what is this? Others of you may feel familiar with that as definition or you have a complete point what is going on and feel meaningless reading the article. On the other hand we feel pleasure and as a little satisfaction we can share you the reasons why we love and use it in almost daily basis. Initially it's right to mention that Elxis is a system developed in order to provide a modern and flexible tool for both developers, designers, analysts and web site owners.

In parts 1 and 2, we looked at how to brief an agency and work with them. We are now skipping ahead to after you have approved the designs and development brief to the testing phase. This is a key phase and one that can often derail a project.
You’ve done your research, read through the proposals and selected your agency. This is often a nerve-wracking time for clients as money has been committed and you are under pressure to deliver. Developing a good working relationship with your agency and understanding how they work will help you deliver a website that is on time and within budget.
Designing and developing websites is second nature to us, but it can be challenging if it is a process you have never been through before. Having a website created for your business is committing not only your money, but also the time to plan, review and test the finished site. So how can you survive this process and get the most out of your time and money but also out of your agency? One of the key aspects is the planning and research you do before asking for quotes. It is important that you are able to give as full a brief as possible when asking for a price as you are more likely to get a realistic price and time scale back. If the price seems too good to be true, then it usually is – the brief may have been misunderstood or not in-depth enough.

Some of the most important technical restrictions and challenges in a SEO process are caused by the content management system in use: From its code cleanliness, flexibility to optimize specific elements, the options to organize its structure, to its scalability.This is why the selection of a CMS that effectively provides a solution to the site present and possible future needs, depending on its characteristics while making sure that it is also SEO friendly, is fundamental.
I came across this great article on Search Engine Land a few weeks ago that explains why search rankings and SEO ranking
reports no longer matter—something I have thought for a very long time.
It’s nice to hear other SEO professionals agree that search rankings are
