How To Explain Web 2.0
|Computing : Internet
There has been much press recently for the so-called Web 2.0, the new incarnation, as it were, of the internet and the tools available.
Understanding exactly what Web 2.0 refers to in a nutshell can be quite difficult if outside the general bubble of excitement about what it could mean.
Broadly, it simply refers to web sites that have richer user interfaces than most current sites which have none or limited ones - in other words, sites that act more like the applications that run on your computer than simply a static library of interconnected pages.
An example is Google Maps; which acts more like an application you might install on your computer than a web site in many ways.
And in a nutshell, that's what Web 2.0 refers to!
