IoT and the Transformation of the Web Browser
Created on November 23, 2015
Back around 1995, the first web browsers were introduced and, since then, have become the integral part of every known device.
There isn’t a significant difference between the web browser of 2015 versus 1995. For example:
- Bookmarking pages for later retrieval
- Running Java script – client side code
- Rendering HTML and web pages, including images
- Running rich content through plug-ins
There have been evolutionary improvements:
- Support for more content types
- Running Ajax and process JSON.
- Improved security
Overall, not much has changed but, if we think about it, what can or will change in the future?
Eventually the web browser will evolve into something very different. The Internet of Things technology links the physical world to the virtual world.
Over the last 20 years The Internet has significantly impacted the human race. It is now on course to impact our daily lives in areas such as our appliances, cars, homes, and clothes by way of the Internet of Things
IoT technologies are being utilized today. Sensors are being deployed in many applications that gauge human interaction and push this into the cloud. This technology is also being used to gather analytics and machine learning as well. Beacons technology is being used by enterprises to emit or share information both internally and externally.
With these capabilities working together, a revolutionary makeover for the browser is imminent and this will happen because of the implementation and growth of IoT technology.
