Single-page applications, being light in weight, faster, and more efficient, increased both in demand and popularity in recent years.
Developers will continue to use SPA for building responsive sites and apps in 2024.
This year too, we will see many new applications being developed in this developer-friendly language.

Because of its fast-loading and high functionality features, PWA will continue to remain one of the year’s hottest web trends.

8. Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP):
Accelerated mobile pages are an initiative by Google to ensure that existing desktop websites give an equally amazing user experience across mobile devices.
Web developers who are familiar with this tech are helping companies to implement the same on their websites.
Cybersecurity, another term for IT security, will continue to have its place in the online space as long as the internet world is threatened by data breaches, hacking and similar cyber attacks.
Developers with specialization in IT security will be in high demand this year.
10. VR and AR:
Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Technologies, which were introduced only two years back, have now become a core part of modern web development frameworks.
From digital reality to visualization to 3D replicas, AR/VR will be used for enhancing user experience in the online space.
11. Voice Search:
Following Google’s increased focus on voice search queries, websites based on voice search optimization are now trending more than ever.
As the number of people using voice searches will increase this year, so will the demand for websites optimized for the same.
12. Push Notification:
Push Notification is replacing the Newsletter service. It is not very old but maintains a high conversion rate better than Newsletters.

13. Focusing on Web Vitals from the Beginning of the Project:
