Keeping up to date and in the know how.

We are constantly trying to develop better ways and improve on current technologies. We are keen contributors on support blog's, latest web trend websites and most importantly keeping a close eye on web browser development companies websites for latest additions and updates. After all, a website can only function as good as the browser the user is using. Unfortunately not all browsers function in the same manner, therefore we work extra hard at making all websites look and feel the same accross the board.
