There’s a relatively new technology (released in late 2015) called ‘AMP’ (Accelerated Mobile Pages). This technique is a good solution for landing pages. AMP “is a web component framework and a website publishing technology developed by Google which has the mission to ‘provide a user-first format’ for web content ” Wikipedia The main benefit of AMP technology is its speed.
Web pages using AMP are extremely fast, compared to ‘ordinary’ websites. It’s not spread generally because it’s more difficult to develop complex systems in it, but it could be ideal in some cases. There are nearly 12.000 websites in the UK which use AMP for some purposes. It doesn’t mean that the whole website is built using this technique, but they use it for at least a few pages.
