It is a color palette that Mosaic, Netscape, and Internet explorer uses within their browsers , but is slightly different it the color that appear on Macs in Pcs. it has 216 out of 256 colors because the 40 colors vary differently on Macs and Pcs so the 216 colors can be  use for cross platform. browser safe color palettes is used for flat-color illustrations, logos with flat-color, and areas in any image that have a lot of a single color.

2.is it still relevant in today’s context?why?

Yes . it is because there will still be color conflicts on different platform use and websites. the color you used for this website does not mean it will appear as the same color on the other websites and different platforms.

some common fonts found on mac and pcs are :Arial, arial black, comic sans Ms, courier new,Georgia,Lucida Console,Times New Roman,Verdana,MS Sans Serif4,MS Serif4.

4.What is page loading time and how it influence your design?

page loading time is the time for the web to load all the objects included on the page and total loading time is time required to load all the pages including the objects. it takes time to retrieve the information for your objects if your objects file size is very big. how it influence my design. i will try to minimize the size of the objects as to let the user not having to wait so long for the web to load.

5. thoughts about web design process after reading article.

from the article, i have realise that different varieties of industries all have different focuses on their web designs. they all have their own processes in desgining the website. some industries, their process in designing are as follows, 1st. they analyze what the users need and what they want. then they come up with concepts. then they start designing and coming up with many ideas , next they start to develope the concept of the websites, how it should work. next they develope and execute the websits and finally launch. some idustries before they would do research on how other websites work and see which ones are the popular ones among users and how they could add elements into their concepts so it would be interesting. then they start to thumbnial and sketch the designs before they really move on to finalize and then start to design the web. industries also consults clients and fully understand what they really want and know how they web should work before they even start thumbnailing.

From this article,  i have realise how it could help me in webdesign process and know more about how companies create websites , the processes and how they focus on different elements like example, some focus more on what the client want. they gi the exact things the client want. and some they focus on web execution and the design to attract more users.
