How technology has changed over the past 20 years

Evolving technology

Bison Grid has now been in business for over 20 years and we thought we would take a look at how technology has changed in that time!


Over the past 20 years, we have experienced significant changes in technology. Websites have evolved from simple static pages to interactive and dynamic platforms that are accessible on a variety of devices.

Technology has undergone a significant transformation in the past 20 years. CSS has evolved to offer more creative ways to design websites, and JavaScript has become a key technology for powering advanced website features, animations, and immersive experiences. Additionally, the development of mobile technology and the emergence of the Internet of Things has further transformed how we interact with technology in our daily lives.


Ecommerce has become a vital part of website development over the past 20 years. With the increased popularity of online shopping, businesses have had to adapt by creating online stores that can compete. This has led to the development of platforms like Shopify, Magento, and WooCommerce, which make it easy for businesses to create and manage online stores.

Progressive web apps

Progressive web apps (PWA) are web applications that can be accessed through a browser, but they offer the same experience as native apps. This means that users can access features like push notifications and offline mode without having to download a separate app.

Content management system

Content management systems (CMS) have made it easier for developers to create and manage websites. In the past, websites were often hand-coded, which was time-consuming and required a high level of technical expertise. However, with CMS platforms like WordPress, clients can easily edit and manage content.

Improving quality

UI design

Websites were often cluttered and difficult to navigate. With the introduction of responsive design, the UI has become more streamlined and visually appealing. This has allowed designers to create more engaging and interactive websites that are easy to navigate across all devices.


With faster internet speeds, websites can now incorporate higher quality graphics, videos, and more advanced content, which was not possible before. This has enabled web designers and developers to create more visually appealing websites with advanced features. Without the increased bandwidth, sites would be limited to using lower quality graphics, which would result in more basic and plain looking sites.

The user

Mobile friendly

Websites were designed primarily for desktops and laptops, however with the increasing popularity of mobile devices has meant that developers had to adapt their websites to be mobile-friendly. This meant creating responsive designs that could adjust to different screen sizes and resolutions.

Social media

With the emergence of faster internet speeds and the widespread adoption of mobile phones, social media has become an increasingly popular channel for businesses to connect with customers and reach new audiences. The growth of mobile phones and their increased capabilities, such as larger screens and better cameras, has further contributed to the popularity of social media. Social media has become an integral part of modern marketing strategies, enabling businesses to build brand awareness, drive sales, and grow their customer base.

Our team at Bison Grid are looking forward to working with new technologies and are excited to see how they evolve over the next 20 years!
