Metro Web Design or flat web design are the modern trend. “Flat” is the word that is going like crazy in all the designer circles.
Everybody is occupied with metro design techniques because of the design language Microsoft created for Windows Phone and Windows 8. It is called Metro design language and that has really become successful, contrary to some predictions.
The main idea behind developing metro design language was that there should be a design methodology that synchronizes with all kinds of devices.
Even though Microsoft has announced that next version of Windows will be created specifically for desktop machines and mobile devices will get a separate version, metro has asserted its rule for future.
It is believed that Metro websites are easy on the eyes and they give a better user experience. Do they? You check and tell me 🙂
