How you can Discover the Greatest Net Designer for Your Wants


Everyone has a different reason for wanting to launch a new website. There are currently over three billion internet users in the world today and around one billion websites exist online.

Many businesses are creating websites to showcase their products and services, even those who do not offer them online. It’s highly beneficial for a business to have a website because the internet is where a vast percentage of people get their information and do their research before buying.

Websites aren’t beneficial to businesses alone. Countless schools, organizations, marketers, professionals, and bloggers are using branded websites to help them stand out and attract more attention. Websites can help professionals land new clients, allow bloggers reach their audiences in distinct ways, and bring people together for networking and philanthropic purposes.

No matter who you are, having a website can benefit you, and the way your website looks can either facilitate or hinder these benefits. It’s important to consider a few primary concerns before hiring a web designer.

What does a web designer do?

A web designer is responsible for the way your website looks and how it will be navigated by users. This should not be confused with the role of a web developer or programmer, which is to get your website functioning online. These types of web developers code and understand how to use servers, developer software, and VPNs (virtual private networks commonly used to do things like connect computing devices across long distances and bypass Netflix proxy errors). Web designers typically use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, or both to create graphics and website blueprints.

What to look for in a designer

Building a website is a major investment in time and money, and good web designers can charge up to $80 an hour. You want to make sure you’re

Google for Brazil: Constructing a extra inclusive web for everybody, in all places


Google for Brazil: Building a more inclusive internet for everyone, everywhere

Brazilians love the internet. With more than 139 million people online, Brazil ranks among the top five internet populations in the world. Brazilians are also heavy users of Google products, from Search and Android to YouTube and Maps to Photos and Waze. And Brazil is an innovation hub for Google. Our engineering team in Belo Horizonte has made remarkable contributions to our products globally, such as improving health-related searches.

But we know there is still a lot of work to do in Brazil and elsewhere to make technology work better for more people. So today at our Google for Brazil event in São Paulo, we made several announcements about how we’re working to make the internet more inclusive and to make our products work better for people in Brazil—and around the world.

Google Duo audio calling

Last year we created Google Duo to bring simple, high-quality video calling to users on Android and iOS. Now we’re adding audio-only calling in Duo. So in those moments when video calling isn’t an option—like when you’re about to hop on a crowded bus or have a poor network connection—you can stay connected with family and friends through audio calling. Duo audio calls work well on all connection speeds and won’t eat up your data. This feature will be available starting today first in Brazil, and we’ll be rolling it out to users around the world in the coming days.

Google Allo file sharing and Smart Smiley in Brazilian Portuguese

Since launching Google Allo last September, users in countries like Brazil have requested the ability to share documents in group chats. Starting today, Android users everywhere will be able to share documents and other files (.pdf, .docs, .apk, .zip, and mp3) with friends on Allo. And for users in

Securing your units: Android Safety Yr in Evaluation

Security is critical for every single one of our 1.4 billion Android users — from consumers to enterprise users in highly regulated industries. That’s why, in addition to all the work we do to make Android devices secure out of the box, we also provide additional features for enterprises that want to control their own security protocols.

Today, we released the third annual Android Security Year in Review, which details the measures taken to protect Android users and their data over the last year, as well as the results of those efforts.

In 2016, we released many enterprise capabilities to strengthen Android security, such as “always-on” VPN, security policy transparency, process logging, improved WiFi certification handling and client certification improvements. Android’s security and management features are simple to use for businesses of any size, with powerful tools for admins.

Overall, we improved our abilities to stop dangerous apps, built new security features into Android 7.0 Nougat and collaborated with device manufacturers, researchers and other members of the Android ecosystem.

The results have been tangible. We saw dramatic decreases in Potentially Harmful Apps (PHAs) that may put users’ data or devices at risk, worked with partners to improve security device update rates and grew our Android Security Rewards program.

Whether talking about consumers or enterprises, our goal is simple: keep our users safe. For more details about our findings, read the full Year in Review report or watch our webinar.

Numerous protections for a various ecosystem: Android Safety 2016 Yr in Evaluation

PHA protections Android 2016

Today, we’re sharing the third annual Android Security Year In Review, a comprehensive look at our work to protect more than 1.4 billion Android users and their data.

Our goal is simple: keep our users safe. In 2016, we improved our abilities to stop dangerous apps, built new security features into Android 7.0 Nougat, and collaborated with device manufacturers, researchers, and other members of the Android ecosystem. For more details, you can read the full Year in Review report or watch our webinar.

Protecting you from PHAs

It’s critical to keep people safe from Potentially Harmful Apps (PHAs) that may put their data or devices at risk. Our ongoing work in this area requires us to find ways to track and stop existing PHAs, and anticipate new ones that haven’t even emerged yet.

Over the years, we’ve built a variety of systems to address these threats, such as application analyzers that constantly review apps for unsafe behavior, and Verify Apps which regularly checks users’ devices for PHAs. When these systems detect PHAs, we warn users, suggest they think twice about downloading a particular app, or even remove the app from their devices entirely.

We constantly monitor threats and improve our systems over time. Last year’s data reflected those improvements: Verify Apps conducted 750 million daily checks in 2016, up from 450 million the previous year, enabling us to reduce the PHA installation rate in the top 50 countries for Android usage.

Google Play continues to be the safest place for Android users to download their apps. Installs of PHAs from Google Play decreased in nearly every category:

  • Now 0.016 percent of installs, trojans dropped by 51.5 percent compared to 2015
  • Now 0.003 percent of installs, hostile downloaders dropped by 54.6 percent
