5 Impressive Alternatives for Most Popular Web Browsers


Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari and Opera are the 5 browsers that are dominating the desktop browser market in the world. Whichever might be the statistics you use to check (NetMarketshare or W3Counter), you’ll find that they contradict each other while deciding on which browser is leading the race.
Of course, these are the 5 most popular browsers but these are not the only 5 browsers available to access the internet. Below listed are the 5 alternative browsers you can use instead of the above mentioned browsers.
#1. UC BROWSER: UC browser is one among the popular cross-platform browsers; you can make the browser work even on an old Symbian device. Let this not blindside you, there are several other reasons for you to check it out. The excellent rounded design and smoother animations give the browser a fresh look and feel. The browser offers a cloud account for all the settings, extensions, bookmarks from the Chrome web store which is referred to as an alternative to the Google ecosystem. The browser doesn’t just focus on social networks, downloads and security but also on appealing to the wider audience.
#2. MAXTHON: Maxthon, the popular Chinese browser available for desktop and mobile platforms incorporates two rendering engines. The browser comes with abundant features like built-in proxy manager, split-screen view, ad-blocking, and so on. All your settings, extensions, tabs and passwords will be synced across multiple devices by just logging in with the Maxthon Passport.
#3. MXNITRO: MxNitro is slightly a different take when compared to Maxthon. Speed being the main concern, MxNitro is just like a stripped down version of Maxthon with almost nothing other than the basic functionality. You can install it easily and start browsing immediately without having to tinker with the settings. There are no download managers, no extensions and no cloud syncing. The only main purpose of MxNitro is to enable you to access the internet without any clutter or distraction.
#4. TORCH: Instead of just being a straight forward browser, Torch aims at being a powerful media-consumption centre. Based on Chromium, Torch has been added with some extra functionality and is heavily restyled. New tab page on the browser boasts a customizable and stylish design while the toolbar features the shortcuts for all the media features available on the browser. The download manager of Torch delivers the file somewhat faster than Chrome, but the files will often have bugs and crashes.
#5. CITRIO: Citrio does an excellent job related to the Chromium updates, bug fixes, security and implementation of new features. It’s more like Chrome browser but looks simple and performs even better. Though the browser looks simple, it’s powerful for media consumption and file downloads. The download manager is used for normal downloads, torrents and magnet links without differentiating between them.

8 Most Significant Steps to Design a Perfect Website Layout


While designing a website layout, the new designers and interns usually make a lot of mistakes which would spoil the look and feel of a website. Here are a few steps to be followed which would certainly help new designers to create the best website layout. The following steps not only cover the design aspects but also the general workflow issues which makes a perfect website.
Steps to be followed to design a perfect website layout:
1. Sketch your thoughts on a paper: The common mistake most of the designers do is that they jump straight away into the Photoshop before the perfect planning on the thing they are going to start up with. Basically designing is all about giving solutions to the problems. So these problems can’t just be resolved through shadows or gradients. They have to be analyzed by having a clear hierarchy and good layout.
2. Sketch a top level framework: The next thing to do while designing the look and feel of a website is that, you need to analyze the top level framework which would solve most of the design problems. Framework is nothing but the UI which encloses the content of a website which navigates you through certain actions. It comprises the components like side bars, bottom bars and more.
3. Add a grid to your PSD: You need a proper grid to start up with the design in Photoshop. Of course, you can start up without having a grid; but the thing is that the design will surely not look good if you don’t use a grid, because, a grid helps you to structure the layout in a particular format by differentiating the sections. A grid drives you through the requirements and aids you in crating responsive templates.
4. Typography: Selecting the suitable typefaces is also a crucial part in designing a web layout. Generally the experts’ advice not to use more than two typefaces in a website; but ultimately it relies on the nature of your website. It’s also advised to use playful titles and a good font which is easy to read.
5. Color theme: While selecting the typefaces, you need to think about the colors you are going to use in the background, UI and the text. Normally for a general interface, it’s always good to use limited set of colors depending upon the functionality of the element. Besides the interface, no color restrictions should be there for graphic details or illustrations.
6. Divide the layout: A web layout should properly be divided into layouts such that each section should tell a story. Layouts should assist the website content by highlighting the important pieces in the story. Plan up for a simplest layout and start adding the necessary components. You will definitely be surprised to see the final outcome.
7. Sharpen your work: Along with the aesthetic considerations, there are certain things to be avoided to render an ideal piece of work. Sharpening the work is nothing but including the appropriate gradients, font rendering options, blurry edges and strokes which badly merge with the background.
8. Clean up your PSDs: It’s really important to keep your PSD files clean as it speeds up the design process by making it easier to export different sections. Whatever might be the size of the project and the number of designers working on it, but it’s always advised to keep the PSD files clean.
Though experience matters in the field of web designing and development, any new designer or an intern can seamlessly design the website layout with an excellent look and feel if they follow all the above mentioned steps.

4 Major Technological Advancements to Take Ecommerce to Next Level

People used to look at ecommerce with uncertainty; today ecommerce has grown to such an extent that it is now a widely received form of business and transactions across the world. The field of ecommerce has witnessed several major changes from two decades of its arrival, which includes the mobile emergence and Omni channel experience.
The technology continuously developed to improve the online shopping experience for both customers and sellers.
With these many changes happening over time, what has ecommerce got to do? What are the advancements we can see in the near future? Are the foreseen advancements capable of taking ecommerce to the next level?
Below mentioned are the 4 major advancements that are expected to take ecommerce to the next level:
1. Integrated Approaches to Retail
While a dominant strategy of selling to the customers via in-person and online channels is continuing to grow, the new technology is focusing on integrating the approach to omnichannel sales rather than concentrating on digital and in-person sales individually. These new tools manage the inventory, returns and also optimize shipping for the companies which sell thorough multiple channels, but want to build a streamlined customer experience.
2. Interaction with Multi-format Customer
These days the customers find goods and services in lots of ways; this means that the optimization of marketing has been a great challenge than ever before. Now, the technology is addressing how to sort offline, online and mobile campaigns. New features like geo-fencing are allowing the companies to target smartphones by location while the marketing automation technologies are helping consumers make the decisions.
3. Accessibility Technologies
As ecommerce just covers a smaller subset of the entire retail, even now many companies are making the transition to online transactions. The accessibility technologies and platforms that help businesses sell offline move to the online space hold a huge potential. It actually varies from the tools which help in building online stores for start-up platforms like Garmentory, which enables boutiques to list their inventories in a marketplace.
4. Block chain Technology
Initially, the Block chain technology was discussed just in the context of bitcoin. But later on, the companies started realizing the usefulness of technology in other aspects. Block chain technology helps in designing the online payment systems which are safe, scalable and anonymous.
With these advancements happening in ecommerce, it’s really a high-time for the entrepreneurs to have a look at their plans for developing the platform and also consider the ways to strive for the efficiency.
As ecommerce is continually gaining the popularity with sellers and consumers, more and more technological developments are emerging to improve the system. By being aware of the emerging technologies and its capabilities, you can certainly design a system that thrives in the market.

Keeping this on mind, company has come up with YouTube Red which allows the users watch ad-free videos while also providing other premium features like video saving ability to watch it offline and ability to play videos in the background.
