The rise of mobile apps hasn’t taken anything away from the wide open world of web browsers and cross-platform HTML/CSS/JavaScript — other than supremacy. I think that bothers some, who saw the HTML/CSS/JavaScript browser-centric web’s decade-ago supremacy as the end point, the ultimate triumph of a truly open platform, rather than what it really was: just another milestone along the way of an industry that is always in flux, ever ebbing and flowing.

What we’ve gained, though, is a wide range of interaction capabilities that never could have existed in a web browser-centric world. That to me is cause for celebration.

Seniors who do not currently go online are divided when it comes to the benefits of technology. Half of these non-users (48%) agree that people lacking internet access are at a disadvantage and missing out on important information, with 25% agreeing strongly. But 35% of older non-internet users disagree with the assessment that they are missing out on important information—with 18% of them disagreeing strongly.
Can you imagine your life without the internet?

Tomorrow marks the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web. Throughout 2014, The Pew Research Center will mark this milestone with a series of reports and other activities related to the current state of online life and the potential future of the internet:

A couple weeks ago, we took a look back at more than 15 years of data on the rapid growth and overall impact of the internet. Today, we’re looking ahead to the future.

Follow our yearlong celebration of the Web’s 25th birthday, and join in on the conversation here, on Facebook, and on Twitter using #web25.

As we approach Valnetine’s/Singles’ Awareness Day, here’s some data to chew on:

  • 21% of couples have felt closer to their spouse/partner because of exchanges they had online or via text message.
  • 27% of internet users in a marriage or committed relationship have an email account that they share with their partner. 
  • 18% of online 18-29 year olds have argued with a partner about the amount of time one of them spent online (compared with 8% of all online couples).

Plus much more data candy for your pre-Valentine week. Enjoy!! http://pewrsr.ch/1csCijM
