Responsive web design is 100% necessary. Anything less would be uncivilized.
What is Responsive Web Design?
Responsive web design is setup so that it “responds” to the screen size, and makes adjustments to page elements based on available real estate. Once the site is coded to be responsive, you can view the site on a desktop, tablet, smart phone, etc. and the web site will always look great. Don’t believe us? Try re-sizing this website, and see it shrink into one column the narrower the screen window gets. Go ahead, give it a shot!
Why is Responsive Web Design Necessary?
Mobile users account for roughly 10-15% of web site traffic today, but that number is predicted to jump to as high as 40% in the coming years. If you own a smart phone, then you know that pinching and zooming to see a web page is not nearly as fun as a mobile site. Responsive web design technology allows for a build-it-once mentality, no need for a separate mobile site anymore.
Does it Matter?
Yes, Google is currently suggesting people build responsive web sites, so we do exactly that!
