Progressive Enhancement

One of consideration used in web development architecture/web design is called “Progressive Enhancement“. It is a simple but very powerful technique. It defines layers of compatibility that allow any user to access the basic content, services, and functionality of a web and providing and enhanced experience for browser with better support of standards.

Progressive Enhancement consists of the following core principles:

  • Basic Content must be available/accessible to all browsers
  • Basic Functionality must be available/accessible to all browsers
  • Semantic Markup contains all content
  • Enhanced layout is provided by externally linked CSS
  • Enhanced behavior is provided by unobtrusive, externally linked JavaScript
  • End user browser preferences are respected

So, the objective is to have one only code that is compatible with all devices :D.
