As new technologies are being developed, new trends come along to meet the demands. In the website design industry, we try to adapt with the new trends to make every design fit in the devices and technologies being used today by the consumers.
Today, websites need to be appealing not only in desktops but also in tablets and mobile phones. Rather than designing multiple sites for different devices, front-end web designers use Responsive Website Design (RWD). This technology uses Media Queries allowing content to adapt to different screen resolutions. To demonstrate this technology, try resizing the browser of this website. The contents and images fluidly adjust along with the smaller display.
Responsive web design is recommended by Google, it allows one website to provide a great user-experience across many devices and screen sizes.
