What is a responsive website?

A responsive website is one that adapts the content styling based on the users device, usually the screen size.

With the popularity of mobile devices and users accessing the internet on a huge variety of platforms and screen sizes your website needs to respond.

No more pinching and zooming or scrolling around and trying to use a tiny menu!

Responsively designed websites are future friendly because they adapt to all device sizes not just the current device sizes. This is important as new smart phones enter the market at larger and larger sizes.

Your website should serve the same content on a mobile device as the desktop version. Missing content can frustrate users who are familiar with your website.
