Co-founder/CEO of Demodern, an award-winning creative technology agency developing innovative digital experiences, products and projects.

The evolution of web technology is exciting and has been driven by the desire for more engaging and complex experiences—from simple HTML content in 2-D to more advanced WebGL experiences in 3-D. The demand for immersive 3-D experiences has been driven by trends such as gaming and the influence of younger generations. However, achieving the necessary performance and quality on mobile devices has proven challenging, making it difficult to deliver truly rich and immersive 3-D web experiences.

The Evolution Of Websites And Web Technology

The internet has evolved significantly from its early days of static HTML pages. The introduction of Adobe Flash in the late 1990s allowed developers to create more complex and interactive web experiences, but its security vulnerabilities and performance issues led to a shift toward HTML5 as the preferred standard.

Today, it is a dynamic and interactive medium that enables us to do everything from online shopping to virtual meetings and multiplayer gaming. Technologies like WebGL and WebXR enable more immersive experiences such as virtual and augmented reality on the web. This demonstrates how the web is constantly evolving to meet the demands of users and the capabilities of new technologies.

The Impact Of Mobile Devices And Gaming On Web Technology

The rising demand for 3-D experiences in web technology is fueled by the younger generation’s affinity for mobile-friendly designs and gaming experiences. As mobile devices continue to dominate internet access, companies must provide mobile-friendly designs and optimizations for various devices.

3-D technologies like WebGL, Vulkan, OpenGL, Metal or DirectX 12 are instrumental in crafting engaging and immersive experiences. The use of 3-D technologies like WebGL will remain a significant trend in web development, enabling more accessible and immersive experiences
