W3C Explained

Business, Standards, Web Design

You may have heard or read somewhere that all our websites are made to W3C standards. But what are they? W3C stands for The World Wide Web Consortium, an international group that work together to develop Web standards. Designers across the globe endeavor to work to such standards, but what are the benefits?

Websites made the W3C standards have less unnecessary code and thus have considerably lower loading times. This makes websites more friendly to users on slow internet connections, or hand held devices like mobile phones.

These standards also make your website more compatible with different browsers and thus more people can see your website without it looking like a Picaso. Something else to take into consideration are the ease of maintenance (which leads to lower costs), and it’s also believed it may have impact on google rankings.

We see W3C standards as a great way to ensure the quality of your websites. If you want to learn more, please feel free to contact us, and see how we can help.
