Join us on a journey through technology and evolution. Let’s celebrate the remarkable technological advancements that have shaped the digital landscape since Platform81 was formed back in 2007. Over the years, the World Wide Web has witnessed an extraordinary transformation, and so have the websites we’ve designed and built. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and marvel at the evolution of web technology and the impactful contributions we’ve made.

The Web in 2007

In 2007, when Platform81 first emerged as a web agency, the online world was a vastly different place. Websites were primarily static, information-focused, and lacked the interactivity we take for granted today. HTML and CSS were the primary tools used to design web pages, and mobile responsiveness was still in its infancy.

The Rise of Dynamic Content

As the years rolled on, Platform81 embraced the wave of dynamic content. The advent of JavaScript frameworks, such as AngularJS and React, revolutionised web development, allowing websites to become more interactive and user-friendly. With dynamic content, users experienced personalised web experiences like never before.

The Mobile Revolution

The launch of the iPhone in 2007 marked the beginning of the mobile revolution. Platform81 quickly recognized the significance of mobile-friendly websites and responsive design. They adapted their strategies to ensure websites were accessible and visually appealing on various devices, from desktops to smartphones and tablets.

E-Commerce and Online Shopping

The e-commerce landscape exploded during this time, and Platform81 was at the forefront of helping businesses establish their online stores. With the integration of secure payment gateways and robust shopping cart systems, they enabled seamless and secure online transactions, transforming the way we shop.

The Age of Social Media

With the growing popularity of social media platforms, Platform81 recognized the potential for businesses to engage with their audiences on these channels. They integrated social media buttons and interactive features into websites, fostering a deeper connection between brands and customers.

The Era of Content Management Systems (CMS)

Gone were the days of static websites that required complex coding to make even minor updates. Platform81 embraced the power of Content Management Systems like WordPress, empowering clients to manage and update their website content easily.


The Advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

As technology progressed, so did the possibilities of AI integration. Platform81 began leveraging AI-powered chatbots and recommendation engines to enhance user experience and provide personalized assistance on websites.


As we celebrate World Wide Web Day, we cannot help but be in awe of the remarkable evolution of technology and its profound impact on web development. As we look to the future, it’s certain that Platform81 will continue to lead the way in building innovative and immersive digital experiences for businesses and users alike. Happy World Wide Web Day!
