Do You Really Need Responsive Web Design? [Infographic]

The assumption that your web design is responsive can only be made true when the users using different operating systems and podiums to access the website, are able to do it successfully. The web design which is responsive is becoming more famous as it removes the need of constantly updating, or adding additional features to the mobile website. Some website owners and designers even think that using responsive web design removes the need of a mobile website. Is it really true?

If the average mobile user is only willing to wait a maximum of four seconds for content to load on their devices, it makes no sense to use an approach that may slow down your site’s loading time. Top internet brands like Facebook, Google, Netflix and more choose server-side solutions to deliver mobile web content to their visitors.

Experts state that the responsive web design actually consists of flexible layouts, media questions and fluid grids that make the website more accessible and easy to use. If one does not use this responsive web design, there are chances that the website owner will have to provide the visitors with different URL’s compatible with different devices.

Hopefully, you’ll get some clerification in this infographic by and which shows why we believe the better choice for many high-traffic, large-volume sites is a fast and flexible server-side solution.

  1. I don’t usually care much for infographics, but this one was actually useful for me; gave me some things to think about that I never had considered with too much interest before. Another thing that helps a lot with loading a webpage quicker (both on desktop and mobile devices alike) is GZipping images and content. Thanks a lot.

  2. Really good explanation and discusses the concepts very well regarding optimisation of sites.

  3. The idea that responsive design automatically implies a larger page size is incredibly incorrect. Pages, be they mobile optimised or not are getting bigger in general. The techniques involved in rwd is new and there are a lot of developers making a lot of mistakes- like delivering the same content to all screen sizes.

    Or setting a maximum-zoom in their viewport meta tag. (check your headers. It made this page virtually unusable for me on a mobile)

  4. Interesting article. Every project has to be evaluated individually and the right techniques applied accordingly.

  5. Yes, of course. It save a lot time for developers and provide a good look for visitors.

  6. This is a really interesting and informative infographic. Now I have a deeper understanding of responsive design and its significance.

  7. I know this post is a couple months old but the infographic is brilliant and set our responsive web design brilliantly.
