One of the Web’s great strengths is the ease with which it enables us to not only disseminate but also compile and aggregate user information. However, as developers, this mean that we must spend an enormous amount of time building and maintaining a multitude of user interfaces, many of which are complex HTML forms. The concepts described in this chapter should enable you to decrease that time a tad.
In addition, this chapter offered a few commonplace strategies for improving the general user experience while working with your application. Although not an exhaustive list, perhaps the material presented in this chapter will act as a springboard for you to conduct further experimentation, as well as help you to decrease the time that you invest in what is surely one of the more time-consuming aspects of Web development: improving the user experience.
