A responsive website is a single website that adapts to any screen size so it’s as easy to use on mobile as it is on tablet and desktop – no pinching or horizontal scrolling required.
The design instinctively adapts to the device it is being viewed on so it looks great on a mobile (smartphones), tablets and desktops.
Responsive websites consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to an iPad, the website should automatically update the layout to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities. In other words, the website should have the technology to automatically respond to the user’s preferences. This eliminates the need for a different design and development phase for each device that a user might use. Prior to the advent of Responsive Design a separate CSS file for each potential screen size and device type used was necessary, multiplying the design work effort many times over.
