Have you ever wondered about the forms that you have to fill up when you browsing through certain websites, or when you login to a certain online account? Personally, I find them to be a hassle most of the time and I see the deed as something necessary but never put much thought into it. One would probably fill up the necessary form or go through the necessary steps and leave it as it is, but has anyone of us give a thought as to how these forms were created, the process that goes behind it or perhaps ways that might improve these online forms?

Online forms were something that is created to collect necessary information from a business’s customers and each form is designed in a specific manner to fulfill the requirements of each business. Some will create a simple form only asking for contact details, username and passwords; where as some require more input fields such as address, preference and comments.
