Every day, the number of devices, platforms, and browsers that need to work with your website grows.
Instead of building a separate website to address each size of device (we used to do that) the web industry
has embrassed several responsive web frameworks. Using a responsive web framework allows a website to be
built that will run on multiple devices – large or small.
Today our aim is to have one working site that is compatible across multiple platforms and devices that include; netbooks,
Blackberry’s, iPhones, iPads, Kindle readers and other smartphones and tablets. It’s inevitable that over the next few years,
new gadgets and devices will be on the market, all having their own respective screen sizes and resolutions.
Responsive web design is a design technique that thoroughly focuses on a user’s environment and behavior based on
the orientation and size of his screen as well as the platform. This methodology integrates a blend of cleverly
laid out grids and images combined with the smart usage of CSS media queries. When a user switches from his
desktop or laptop screen to his iPad or iPhone, the website will automatically size itself to fit the device’s screen.
Using responsive web technology is empowering a website with a kind of artificial intelligence which lets it respond
to the user’s environment. Responsive web design has gained tremendous popularity in the web design world
as it eliminates the need of having different development and design phases for every different gadget in
