Seeing how mobile and tablet traffic is reaching 60% of overall traffic on our client sites , such as shown above, I thought it would be a good time to write another blog post that explains responsive web technology.
A responsive website is one that adapts itself to the screen size of the device it is being viewed on. Unlike mobile sites, a responsive website doesn’t care if you are on a desktop or a phone or what operating system you have. All it cares about is what's the width of your screen. The advantage of this approach is that you need only one website which is not the case with mobile sites that also require desktop versions. The disadvantage of a responsive site is that it can be slower than a mobile site due to its requirement to handle multiple screen sizes.
