Before we get down to the list, it is utmost important to know about “Responsive Web Design” – in short RWD. Responsive web designs “Responds” to the environment, in this case the environment is the devices such as your screen, smartphone or your tablet.
What is Responsive Web Design?
Originally the trend started with Responsive Web Design, the article by Ethan Marcotte (A List Apart). What that article proposed is to address the ever-changing landscape of devices, browsers, screen sizes and orientations by creating flexible, fluid and adaptive sites. Now a days, most websites have 2 or more versions, such as desktop and mobile (sometimes it even targets a single device). Instead of responding to these needs, the idea is to approach the issue the other way around: use flexible and fluid layouts that can adapt to almost any device screen. RWD not only responds but it also Adapts to the as per to the environmental needs.
These are the 3 key technical features of Responsive Web design:
- CSS Media queries and media query listeners
- A flexible grid-based layout that uses relative sizing
- Flexible images and media, through dynamic resizing or CSS
Responsive Web design requires all three features above – to be implemented.
