Responsive Web Design - What is it all about? | June 3rd April

In this article we define what responsive is all about. We look at some of the newly introduced concepts and examine the features of HTML 5 Boilerplate.

 This is a web design approach that is aimed at crafting websites so that an optimal viewing experience is provided. This is easy reading, navigation and usability with minimum use of resizing, panning, and scrolling across a wide range of devices, i.e. desktop computer monitors, to tablet computers, to mobile smart phones.

A website designed according to this approach will adapt its layout to the viewing environment. New websites will typically use some of the following concepts including fluid layouts or proportion-based grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries.
