Simply because we think websites should be smoooth and fun to navigate. They should not break when a page is loaded.
Seamless page transitions can help to achieve this effect.Â Every time a page is loaded without ajax, you can see the browse screen flash for around 100ms. It makes our brain freeze 100ms every times! By loading pages with AJAX, you get 3 main advantages:
- It creates a seamless navigation so it’s good for UX.
- It speeds up your website because main scripts are being loaded only on the first page load. All subsequent pages will benefit from the already-loaded scripts and will not have to call them again and again. Also, we can preload your pages when people hover a link for more than 100ms. It means that when the user will actually click the link, the new page will (mostly) already be loaded.
- It allows you to display widgets that can float your website such as audio player, youtube videos, menu, popups, orÂ banners! It means that when a new page is being loaded, the widget will not break or disappear. It just stay fixed! Hello Musicians, Vloggers and Podcasters!
