Responsive Web Design

With more and more people using iPhones, iPads and smart phones for web browsing, Flash based and Fixed-width websites won’t cut it anymore. Responsive Web Design is a web design approach intended at crafting websites to offer the best viewing experience, simple navigation and easy reading with minimum of scrolling, panning, and re-sizing across a wide variety of devices (from PC to different mobile phones). RWD is a combination of the JavaScript, CSS3, and HTML5 which helps web designers and developers to build up world class web applications and websites that are consistent across all mobile devices and browsers. Responsive web design caters to all devices with same URLs, with every URL serving same HTML to every device and using CSS to change the way a page appears on any device.

Essentially, the core idea behind responsive web design approach was to deal with the changing or ever-evolving landscape of devices, browsers, orientations as well as screen sizes by creating very versatile, highly adaptive and fluid sites. Rather than creating a desktop version adapted to the common screen resolutions, other than a specific mobile version, idea behind RWD is to easily approach the issues in a different manner: use highly fluid and flexible layouts that adjust easily to almost every screen possible with ease.
