What is a responsive website?
A responsive website is one that has been designed to respond, or adapt, based on the technology and type of computing device used by the visitor to display the site. It is basically one website design that will look good at any size — from a large desktop LCD monitor to the smaller screens we use on smartphones and tablets.
Responsive design is a way of developing web properties so that the device they are used to determines the way that the site will be displayed. It’s normally done using the principle “mobile-first” – i.e. the experience is defined on mobile platforms such as smartphones and tablets and then scaled up to larger screens.
Responsive web design (RWD) is a web development approach that creates dynamic changes to the appearance of a website, depending on the screen size and orientation of the device being used to view it. … In responsive design, page elements reshuffle as the viewport grows or shrinks.
