Responsive web design (RWD) is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors, laptops, tablet devices, to mobile smart phones).
Responsive web design allows a site’s layout to change as the screen size being used to view that site changes. A wide screen display can receive a site design with multiple columns of content while a small screen can have that same content presented in a single column with text and links that are appropriately sized to be read and used on that smaller display.
Well, a responsive design is always the same website that changes to various screen sizes. A mobile version is just that, a different version of your full site that has been reformatted, and not always all that well for the various mobile screen sizes. Also, they often look very different (and mostly not in a good way) from your main design.
If you don't even have a mobile version of your site, and want to see what that might look like, you can preview a URL @ duda mobile.
More people are using mobile devices than ever before. The majority of web browsing is taking place on these devices like smart phones and tablets, so a website that can ❝Respond❞ to the different screen sizes has never been more important. Once you switch, you never need to worry if your site will be a good experience for your users.
Yes! Just open the website URL you want to check in your desktop (or laptop) browser window, and resize the window. If the layout of the website changes, you’ve got a responsive website. Resize this web page to see how that can work!
We also have a ❝Test Page❝ you can use on a desktop (or laptop) computer that will let you view a website URL in multible screen sizes at once for a very cool side by side comparison of different devices @ VISITon.com/test .
