If you want your website to look great, you need to get a developer who is specializing in front-end. There is a number of things a good front-end developer should have focus on:
Front-end development requires both, being able to code and design. Too many developers would not be able to tell a difference between “Times New Roman” and “Georgia”. Apparently they look alike but there is a difference.
Luckily, “looks alike” or “good enough” will never be our motto here at Codemakers. We are often complimented by designers and design agencies for our precision down to every pixel in our templates. We ensure that your website will look just as great in the browser as it does in the design file or even better.
CSS is the core of front-end development. It is responsible for website graphics including layout, colors, margins, fonts and a lot more. It is also a relatively simple and easy to use coding language. However, it can be tricky to make the different CSS rules deliver same result across different web-browsers.

Do you like to experiment with colors and functions? Or maybe you would like to display a dynamically created animation, for example, based on the data filled out by a customer? If so, you don’t need to look no further. HTML5 is made exactly for this and more.
HTML5 is relatively new in the industry. Even though the majority of older browsers do not support HTML5, there are tools to make HTML5 work in older browsers too (Explorer 6,7 and 8). One of the major changes HTML5 has brought in is HTML5 Canvas. It can be used to drag and animate 2D sketches and 3D objects.
Sometime in the future will all front-end developers code for the same browser but until then there are different considerations which have to be remembered when coding websites for different browsers. Browser tests are very important in front-end development.
Why is browser testing important?
Different browsers have different ways of rendering the code that a website is written in. As a result, a website might look and/or interact differently across various browsers.
Our products include testing for the following browsers:
