Responsive Websites – What is it and Why Do I Need One?30 Sep 2013, by Blog in
Responsive Web Design? What is that? Do I need that? Why do they keep changing everything on the web! Those are some great questions. While we can’t help you with why the internet keeps changing constantly, we can answer the questions about Responsive Design.
A quick and easy explanation is to use this website. Take the browser and slowly make it smaller and then bigger. You should see that the website responds or scales to the size that you are making it. If a website does not scale to the different sizes of the browser, then it is called a “fixed” website. Responsive websites are designed using a fluid grid, which is basically using percentages to create the website instead of using pixels. A great website to look at is “What the Heck is Responsive Web Design?” (http://johnpolacek.github.com/scrolldeck.js/decks/responsive/).
Next question, do you need a responsive website? The answer is yes! Here is the scoop, responsive websites were created to work with different browsers such as: TV, Ipad, Ipod, Smart Phones, etc. With fixed websites, you will have to create websites to fit each of the different browser possibilities along with your main website. If you have a responsive design, you will only need to maintain one website for every browser. You want your website to be available for customers who are on any type of browser.
