Published February 17, 2015 by CSS Newbies.

The much asked for programming languages in the world of web designing are HTML5 and CSS3 . As a web designer planning to make a career in this field, you must learn these languages. Web developers have stopped using javascript and Flash to some extent,after the introduction of these two languages, which explains the need and importance of the language.. The HTML and CSS3 language help you build highly attractive user interfaces in the web pages, on the contrary  the use of flash makes a site bulky and increases the page load speed and so web developers has stopped using javascript and Flash to some extent.

However, the only disadvantage discovered by me with the usages of these two languages is they are not Search Engine Friendly which means that search engines doesn’t read the information contained within these. In other words, you can say that these scripts are un-crawlable.
