Why Do You Need Responsive Web Design [Infographic]

Besides mobile phones and computers, these days internet can also be accessed via e-readers, netbooks, tablets, televisions and gaming consoles. It is just not feasible to make websites for each and every one of them. Even now, according to a research, only around 9% of the total numbers of required mobile websites are up and running.

Won’t it be simpler to have just a single website that could work everywhere? Responsive web design technology does exactly this.

With the gaining popularity of smartphones, More and more websites are accessed via mobile devices. Websites that aren’t optimised for mobile browsing scare away visitors. Responsive web design can be a solution to this problem. If done correctly, responsive web design doesn’t only provide a better mobile browsing experience, but it can also improve the loading time by optimizing the content for smarthpones. Analysts at Morgan Stanley claim that the world is currently going through fifth technological revolution since the last 50 years. This one is based on the evolution of mobile internet. According to statistics, mobile Internet usage has been growing staggeringly over the past few years and is expected to overtake desktop Internet usage by the year 2013.

What is Responsive Web Design?

A website that is designed to established standards laid down for responsive web designing will be able to adopt its design and layout to fit the specifications of the device calling it. It does this by dynamically adopting to different screen sizes and by reformatting the positioning and look of the constituent elements of the website.

So what may appear to be a website with large images spread through three columns on a computer screen, will appear to have smaller images in a single column on a mobile screen. All of this does not need multiple codes written for each type of device. A single set of code which accepts various specification parameters from the device will do the job. CSS3 is used to give the generated website the desired look and feel.

  2. Wow. Its great infographic. You have covered all most all topics of Responsive Website Design. Looking at the statistics you have given, I can say that responsive website design will be next big thing in website design industry.

  3. Didn’t Steve Jobs brag that the iPhone’s web browser was so revolutionary and amazing. So much so that you could view web pages exactly how they would appear on a desktop? This whole “responsive” web design crap goes against all of that.

    • Yeah, you can see the website just like on the desktop, but have to zoom in to read something. That’s why responsive design is gaining popularity.

      Plus, you can control what will mobile users download by hiding big images and other bandwidth hungry stuff.

  5. Instead of writing a very long content, the evolution of infographics make it easier for the marketers to deliver their message, and so with the readers — they won’t have a hard time understanding the message.

  6. Interesting topic! Responsiveness is a new trend that has gradually taken over the corporate world by force. Now, why responsive web design is popular?
