When it comes to how people perceive and use your website, user experience is king. You want the user to enjoy, revel and thoroughly embrace every aspect of your site. That is why it is important to use the latest technologies, designs and code.
Assembled here are some poll numbers that reinforce the reason to invest in user experience on your site:
