The golden ratio in website design

Perfection is achieved not when there is already nothing to add, but when nothing can be taken away (Antoine de Saint-Exupery. “Planet of people”, 1939)

Far in the fall of 2005, with the light hand of publisher Tim O’Reilly, the term Web 2.0 was firmly included in the lecture by web developers. Like any new term, it still remains the subject of lively discussion, during which the main feature is identified, which is no longer in doubt. Having replaced the “old” Web 1.0, Web 2.0 has become a new model for the existence of the Internet community, where an ordinary user becomes a direct participant and creator of the content of the site.
