"The website is now properly cross platform." For a web designer, it may be immediately clear what is meant by this. You, however, are left with question marks in your eyes. High time to change this. Because what exactly is cross platform? What does it entail? And how important is it for your website?
The term already sounds unfamiliar to many people. That is why it is even more difficult to hear that cross-platform can have several meanings. In the world of web design it can also mean several things. It can mean that a software programme has been used which can be seen on several types of computers. But in most cases it means something else. Namely, that the website is easy to navigate in all browsers and on all operating systems. In addition, the layout should also look good.
Of course, this does not mean that the website has to look exactly the same on every platform. There may well be differences. Sometimes that is necessary. As long as the web page is compatible with multiple operating systems. That way you won't miss out on any visitors.
To be able to guarantee cross platform, it is sometimes necessary not to work with certain systems. If certain animations and videos cannot be read, then of course that is a waste of the user environment. That is why we look for extra functionalities on the website that can be read by anyone and at any time. This is the reason why most web designers do not use the once so popular Flash, because it is no longer supported by various operating systems.
