Is the Web Dead?
As a person who spends much of my workday online, it’s hard for me to imagine a world without the web. Fortunately, I don’t think we’re there quite yet, but according to Mashable, we’re close. In a recent study, researchers found that consumers are spending more time on mobile apps than they are on the web. And with iPads, tablets and smart phones growing in popularity, those statistics probably won’t drop any time soon. Last year, Wired predicted that mobile apps would soon replace the web by matter-of-factly stating “The Web is Dead.” At the time, critics were skeptical of Wired’s claim, but now, it seems they may have been ahead of the game.
What do you think? Is the web as good as dead?
