Technology has progressed way beyond our imagination – Just look around, right from offices to homes and from cars to space crafts, we are completely engulfed by technology.

Extensions and Plug-ins:
Since, the websites are getting more dynamic and interactive; many of them even come with multimedia integration. And hence such web pages require solid extensions and plug-ins to make it work flawlessly. If we take a look at the extensions; WordPress takes the Cake with around 21210 extensions and plug-ins in its basket.
However, Drupal and Joomla are not lagging completely behind – They are competing well with 11000+ and 9000+ extensions respectively. And looking at the stiff competition; there still more to come!

Drupal, unlike the former two, needs high level of technical expertise.
