Earlier, the web applications were not that effective and worthwhile. In fact, most of the web pages were static. Clients were required to establish a connection with the server to send the request for the data, and once the server responds to the client’s request by sending the appropriate data, the connection was terminated. Since, high-end technical support wasn’t there, the data sharing wasn’t speedy. This certainly didn’t encourage people to support their business seriously on the web.

However, with the advancement in the web technologies and the advanced versions of HTML, we are eventually able to reap the benefits of the enhanced web applications. The development of the Java language by Sun Microsystems has played a great role in enhancing the web applications. Since, Java is a platform-independent language, it made a much sought after choice for most of the developers. Then, Netscape unveiled JavaScript, which complemented Java while making development easy, even for the non techies. The development of JavaScript facilitated developers to deal with user interactions proficiently and tweak the web pages in a desired fashion.

Many things have changed in the web arena in the past few years. However, the principles of the way web applications work is still the same. Today also the browsers request the servers for the data, but the process has been dramatically improved, which delivers an optimal browsing experience. The web browsers have become powerful enough to support numerous top-notch features and functions with a flair.
