At around 1995 appears a website by using tables as a basic layout, or so-called table-based layout. Attendance Table-based layout is a significant breakthrough in web design at the time. With table-based layouts, the web can be made in multiple columns layout with positions one step ahead. Web sites using Table-based layouts including the W3C (1998) and Yahoo (2002).

In 1996 flash integrated with the website. At first flash script called by FutureSplash Animator, then Macromedia Flash, now Adobe Flash. Flash itself is actually a development of Macromedia Shockwave (now Adobe Shockwave). The program was first intended as a maker of the multimedia content menu and a list of the autorun CD-ROM.

With the flash, the pictures in the website can ‘move’. In addition to the classic features HTML, such as the ‘link’ can still be presented. But Flash has its drawbacks, namely, the website becomes heavy and difficult to access. In addition, web users must also have the Flash plugin in the browser, and it is very inconvenient time. In the same year (1996), 3DML script was introduced by Michael Powers. 3DML allows the web to show 3D animations. But this innovation is rarely used. 3DML system uses non-standard XML and can only be opened by one type of browser, namely Flatland Rover. Until now, there has been no plugin 3DML made for common browsers such as Mozilla Firefox.

Moreover, DHTML also supports HTML DOM, that allows the script to include Operating System used by the user in a command.

In the same year (2000) Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) was introduced. CSS is a web platform design that is very popular today. With the CSS, the script for the display can be separated from the parent HTML file. With CSS, web templates can be made more presentable. CSS allows many functions to see which can not be met by the table-based layout. CSS lately become very popular with the introduction of open source CMS platforms like Joomla and WordPress. Almost all WordPress and Joomla templates using CSS as a base zoom.
