Do you know what devices and browsers will be used to view your site? Most probably not, but you want your site to be equally friendly to mobile, tablet and desktop users, right? And this is where responsive design steps in. You build a responsive site that easily adapts to different screen sizes and therefore provide the best user experience for the widest range of users without the need to build multiple versions of the same site. Actually, responsive approach is about designing flexible sites and the top 3 features of responsive web design are fluid grids, media queries and responsive images. Of course, there are much more you should know before you start building responsive sites, but if you’d like to get into responsive web design, may we suggest that you check the infographic that has been recently released by TemplateMonster?
