I am curious as to what device you are reading this on? Could it be on a laptop? Maybe you’re at work on a desk? Or – perhaps you have a smartphone in your hand and you’re thumbing through this page.
There are so many different types of devices on the market these days. Current market research shows that mobile internet usage is set to grow even larger in 2015 and increase of sixteen percent from 2010. This would mean that the amount of mobile internet users will overtake the amount of desktop users.
A responsive web design is what allows a website the ability to wrap and adapt to the size of the current screen that it is being viewed on. If someone is opening your website on a smartphone it will appear vastly different than the same page on a laptop or desktop computer. The site automatically reformats the page to give the user a better experience suited to their device. A Responsive design also takes into consideration the interaction which will make your site easier by acknowledging and integrating things like touch screen and special mobile aided navigation.
