Graphic Design/Web Design
A brief history of web design.
Web design has a very young history is similar to other areas such as graphic design and computer science. Although web design is also seen as both. It has made a huge impact in people’s everyday lives. It is very difficult to see a Internet without pictures, different types of themes, and music. Since 2000 and later the web has become much more integrated into people's daily lives, There have also been significant changes in the way people view and access websites, this has changed how sites are programmed and designed.

Consumers understanding the content of a site often relies on users understanding how to navigate the website works. User experience is related to layout, simple instructions on a website.

If a plug-in doesn't come already installed with the browsers, there's a big risk that the user will not have the common sense or the time to go and install a plug-in just to access the more content. If the function requires advanced coding language programing , it may be too expensive in both wasting time or money to code and compared to the amount of enhancements and content the said function will provide to the user experience. There's also a slight risk that advanced UI may be unusable with older browsers or software. Providing a function that doesn't work is potentially worse for the user than making any attempt.
