HTTPS, the network protocol for TLS-encrypted data transfer online can be circumvented in some cases. The danger is that encrypted websites can be accessed via unencrypted HTTP. But the HTTPS extension HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) forces website access via TLS encryption, closing the security gaps that hackers like to use to intercept the HTTPS connection during transport using...
Holding certain data in the client helps to make the Internet faster and more flexible, enabling users to enjoy a better browsing experience. IndexedDB allows larger volumes of data to be stored in the users’ browsers so that they don’t have to be downloaded from the server each time the website is accessed. Get to know IndexedDB based on an example.

Waterfall methodology is one of the classic procedural models of process management. Its central feature is the structured execution of clearly separated project phases. The waterfall model is mainly used in software development, where it still holds its own against more flexible models. We present the waterfall model, and its application possibilities, and explain where its limits lie in the area...
Code editors are frequently used by programmers. These editors have features such as syntax highlighting and autocomplete for words and codes which simplify the process of writing code. This saves programmers a lot of time.
Module tests are one of the most effective methods of identifying as many errors in the source code as possible early on in the software development process. The special feature: the smallest isolatable components of a program are placed in a neutral test environment. If errors appear, it’s obvious they are occurring in the module being tested, which makes them easy to correct.
Welcome to the digital age: every day the average Brit spends hours looking at smartphone screens and PC monitors.
