These days, it’s not enough merely to have a mobile version of your website – you want your site to be compatible across all the devices and that people now use to access the Internet. That is why having a responsive website design is extremely important in this day and age.
A responsive website responds and adapts to your device’s screen size, platform and orientation; in other words, the website’s appearance and interface can change to suit the device on which it is viewed, be it a smartphone, tablet, or desktop PC. This is achieved using fluid grids, flexible images and CSS3 media queries. Responsive websites eliminate the need to have a different design and layout for each device / screen size on the market.
