What is a Responsive "Website" Design?


Responsive Web design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation.

The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their PC/laptop to any mobile device, the website should automatically switch to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities. In other words, the website should have the technology to automatically respond to the user’s preferences. This would eliminate the need for a different design and development phase for each new gadget on the market. A Responsive Design is not only about adjustable screen resolutions and automatically resizable images, but rather about a whole new way of thinking about design.


A few years ago, when flexible layouts were almost a “luxury” for websites, the only things that were flexible in a design were the layout columns (structural elements) and the text. Images could easily break layouts, and even flexible structural elements broke a layout’s form when pushed enough.

Now we can make things more flexible. Images can be automatically adjusted, and we have workarounds so that layouts never break (although they may become squished and illegible in the process). It’s perfect for devices that switch from portrait orientation to landscape in an instant or for when users switch from a large computer screen to any mobile device.


Conclusion:
It's very important to have a Responsive Website because today, many people access websites from mobile devices, rather than desktop computers or laptops. While most smartphones can display regular websites, the content is difficult to read and even harder to navigate. Therefore, many web developers now use responsive web design to provide a better web browsing experience on small screens.
