Harmful Web Content

  6. A more constructive approach to improving the experience of users with mobile devices is to make all content flexible. Device-independent design saves money for content providers who only have to manage one copy and one URI, instead of multiple sites for different devices. Content designed this way is also generally easier to maintain over time. Users also benefit since more of the Web becomes available to them in more environments.

  7. There is a lot of competition in outsourcing software development, as there are many firms across the globe catering to clients looking for outsourcing their work. What is good is that the takers can choose the best from the lot.
