Web 2.0 is a buzzword coined in 1999 to describe the emergence of technology and websites that extend beyond static pages to allow visitor interaction and user generated content, rather than information retrieval only. So-called Web 2.0 technologies brought about the social media revolution—allowing people to easily share interesting content with one another without using email.

Search engines also cache websites, to speed web page retrieval, lower bandwidth costs, and to reduce server load.Top

WYSIWYG is an acronym for What You See Is What You Get. On the Web, WYSIWYG (pronounced WIZ-ee-wig) editors are sometimes used to publish web content by those who lack experience with markup languages. WYSIWYG editors allow users to arrange and format text, images, and other web content in "design view", with HTML and CSS created by the application.
WYSIWYG editors such as Dreamweaver, are convenient for beginners, but often produce redundant, non-Web standard, un-semantic HTML, that can result in slow-loading, inefficient, difficult to maintain websites.Top
