Dubai–With residents eagerly awaiting the launch of the Dubai Metro, Dubai’s biggest infrastructure project, Flip Media today unveiled Mydubaimetro.com, a non profit portal designed and developed to provide residents of Dubai with a practical and usable guide to all things related to the Metro.
The one stop shop website offers key information and helpful tools such as a journey planner and fare calculator, information about each station stop as well as downloadable pocket maps.
“We saw a gap in the market where people, including ourselves, were curious and hungry for more information about the Metro,” said Yousef Tuqan Tuqan, CEO, Flip Media.
Dinesh Lalvani, Managing Partner of Flip added, “We’re bringing the best of web and technology to help people discover not only the basic information about the services available, but also help connect with fellow commuters. The idea is to make the metro not just about the destination but also about the journey and experience.”
The community portal gives users to post comments, blog and share photos and useful tips about the metro. The website is scalable, allowing for the addition of new technology and tools.
I am very proud of this, as one of developers of this website and the Technology behind it, The Navisite CMS .
“Is there anyone who can ban IE – Then please do it ” – A web developer when spent fixing (JS or XHTML)/hacking(CSS) IE bugs .
“Develop for Firefox ” – it is the web standard
People use IE – they are two years back in web.
There was web sites that viewable only in IE – “Please ban those sites.” – Now there is websites to say “only for Firefox”.
Firefox usage increasing day by day – it is just started. “to conquer the web”
Yes, there is lot of truth in those points.And Firefox is more loved by its new features and extensions.
All browsers have their on strengths and Issues. To cop with this changing web they need regular updates. Firefox is open source, the development will always try to archive open standards. IE is developed proprietary,they will include proprietary components like activex for their users, thus standards may be less cared.
