RESPONSIVE WEB DEVELOPMENT/ MOBILE COMPATIBILITY
Smart Phones & Mobile internet has drastically changed the means of accessibility these days. Websites being the first source of information many a time are being consumed on a variety of devices, not just the traditional desktop computer. Now, users are visiting websites from their phone, tablet, tv, games console, as well as their laptop and desktop computers. A website is not user friendly to read or navigate through, as it does not automatically fit to the screen size. We need to adapt to the change in size and variety of devices that are on the market.
To handle all these devices, the technique of making website Mobile Compatible is being employed more and more, especially over the traditional method of creating a separate desktop site and mobile site. Google has announced that it prefers to see sites work responsively as there is only one single page for all content.
The process of responsive web design works by making the website expand and contract based on the width of the browser in question. You can make your browser window smaller and you will see the elements on the page reposition themselves to adapt to the different size. This works on all devices including iPhone, Android, iPad, small laptop screens, and large desktop screens.
