Responsive websites

“Responsive” remains a major keyword going into 2015. Estimates are that nearly 2 billion Smartphones will be in use by the first part of 2015, with over 85% of them used to browse the web.  What does that mean?

It means that a web page has to perform just as well on a smartphone as it does on a laptop or desktop.  The world is moving toward a mobile environment. The desktop is slowly becoming obsolete.  I grew-up on a desktop so this is a bit disconcerting. Whenever I go into tech stores now all I see are portable devices: tablets, notebooks, netbooks, and smartphones.

The vast majority of websites I design are responsive by nature.  This ensures that it is functional across all mediums.
