What Is Website Responsive Design?

In simple terms Website Responsive Design allows a website to resize its elements to fit the device the site is being viewed on. A simple test - if you are looking at this page on a desktop computer, try making the browser window smaller and notice how images and content automatically shrink and how the number of columns will decrease until there is just one. This allows the site to be flexible so it can be displayed on any devise and screen resolution.

Why is it important?

It’s estimated that, sometime in 2013, the numbers who use mobile devices to access the internet will outnumber those that use a desktop. How your website displays on mobiles will become the more important design factor. Your website must be easily visible and usable on all types of devices and browsers. Our designs, through coding and styling, create fluid websites that respond to the resolution of these devices from large screens, to tablets and mobile devices. Now your customers get a user-friendly experience whatever they use.

We also make sure that your website looks the same across all major browsers. Today people use a variety of browsers. Internet Explorer is not the runaway market leader any more. Chrome and Firefox have now overtaken Internet Explorer as the browsers of choice. This is a good thing as Internet Explorer is certainly not the choice of the developer or the knowledgeable enthusiast.  As a result, it is very important that your website displays consistently across the wide range of available browsers.  We ensure your website will look the same in Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera and the rest.

A note on Internet Explorer 8. This browser does not support Website Responsive Design. You will need to update your Browser to at least IE9. I’d try one of the others if I were you!!!
