Responsive web design (RWD) is a web design approach targeted at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones to wide-screen monitors, desktops, laptops, tablets and phones of all sizes to desktop computer monitors).
A site designed with RWD adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries, an extension of the media rule.
The fluid grid concept requires page element sizing to be in relative units like percentages, rather than absolute units like pixels or points. Flexible images are also sized in relative units, so as to prevent them from displaying outside their containing element. Media queries allow the page to use different CSS style rules based on characteristics of the device the site is being displayed on, most commonly the width of the browser.
Hence, Responsive Web design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behaviour and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation.
RWD uses so-called breakpoints to determine how the layout of a site will appear: one design is used above a breakpoint and another design is applied below that breakpoint. The breakpoints are commonly based on the width of the browser.
Day by day, the number of devices, platforms, and browsers that need to work with your site grows. Responsive web design represents a fundamental shift in how we’ll build websites for the decade to come. The same HTML is served to all devices, using CSS (which determines the layout of web-page) to change the appearance of the page.
Rather than creating a separate site and corresponding code-base for multitude of devices available to customers, a single code-base can support users with differently sized viewports. It makes maintenance easier over time. Responsive design is good for SEO. Google prefers responsive web design as the recommended mobile configuration.
