Why Responsive Design?
Current website traffic statistics show that more than a third of websites are now being viewed on smart phones and tablets. Unfortunately, browsing websites on devices with smaller screens isn’t always a great experience. Creating multiple versions of your website to suit different screen sizes and resolutions is both impractical and costly. A better solution is to have your website designed using responsive coding. This means building a single website which has the ability to adapt its presentation to suit the device its being viewed on.
The User Experience
Not having a responsive website often leads to a poor experience for Smart Phone and other mobile device users. This can cause them to leave your site, most likely never to return. Your website visitors should have a seamless experience when navigating through your site. They need to be able to read text, fill out forms, and get to the content they want to see without any frustrations regardless of which type of device they are using.
Designing for Tomorrow
One of the big benefits of responsive design is that it's based on screen size, not device. This means that no matter what type of device is being used now, or in the future, responsive websites will display properly for that screen size. Screen technology is continually evolving, as a result, there's no such thing as a standard screen size or resolution anymore.In the future, as new mobile devices like watches and glasses start being used for web browsing, responsive websites should still work.
