For any business with any kind of product base, whether retail, manufacturing or wholesale, a listing of those products on the [...]
Back in the infancy of the world wide web, frames were a pretty useful tool. They allowed a designer to have multiple panels on a page with one or more displaying consistent content (like a menu). With the advent of the modern web programming languages such as Active Server Pages (ASP), PHP & ASP.Net, frames are now really nothing more than a relic of the past.

How do you think technology and/or web design will change in the next 10-20 years?
Technology will continue to make things such as newspaper and telephone books obsolete. As such, the web will need to absorb that information and make it available and usable to people. So the web and technology devices will need to continue to evolve to accommodate this. Not only will technology meet current needs but I think it will also create the needs which itself will have the solution for. (If that made any sense…)
