The Newest. The Biggest. The Baddest.

Due to today’s mobile browsing Flash limitations, we aim to avoid Flash for any kind of animation. To ensure that our website looks just as great on a smartphone or tablet as on a computer, we have combined HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, and the jQuery library. With these platforms, we are able to create a beautifully animated splash page (introduction page) and 3D slideshow sliders as headers of our main pages that are still viewable on mobile devices.

HTML5 CSS3 JavaScript jQuery

Many may ask, “What’s the difference between HTML5 and Flash?” These languages are rapidly becoming web standards due to their compatibility with the majority of today’s most popular browsers, compatibility with non-flash mobile devices such as the iPhone and iPad, and ultimately, the beautiful animations that can be created through the combination of the three. HTML5 is not Flash, so that means that there are no loading screens and no waiting periods. Through HTML5, you can get the best of both words… And then some.

Content

Team KAOS strives to provide as much content as possible to the public. In order to provide viewers with a great insight into our story, it is essential to distribute as much information that can be easily accessed anywhere. Our goal is not only to allow viewers to access our information and ready about it, but rather see it and experience it. Every page in Team KAOS’ website is packed with appealing images and countless content waiting to be discovered. The more the content, the better the website. We seek to make our website a culmination of knowledge, in which teams can use as a liasion between all sorts of information.

 

Accessibilty

One of Team KAOS’ most important website related tasks is ensure that the website is user friendly. However, this also applies to people with handicap limitations. To aid in making our website easier to use, we incorporate alternate (“ALT”) tages into all of our images. This allows an alternative options to users using handicap tools that ultimately give them a perception of what the images are or represent. We also aim to avoid using bright colors. There are possibilities that bright colors may cause shock to sensible viewers, therfore it is better to use subtle colors that still provide a definite visual contrast. One that users may also notice is that our website maintains the same layout throughout all sub-pages. This allows users to develop an ability to smoothly browse through our website without the need of having to figure out how to navigate through every page.
