Rule no.4 – HTML5 & JavaScript replace Flash technology

Mainly because Apple doesn’t support Flash technology (imagine how many people use Apple products now). Flash wasn’t really good for SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) either.

Flash was replaced with HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, Canvas, etc.

Rule no.5 – Creative navigations replace traditional ones

New styles and ideas for the site navigation.
