Today’s version of website design has come a long way since…well…5 years ago. Things in the technical industries change overnight. But, the constant in web design remains the same. Keep it simple and keep it focused to the user’s behavior and environment. As the user switches rapidly to website to website and from laptop to iPad, the websites gain an intellect to accommodate those rapid changes as well as a prediction and automatic design and layout response for the upcoming page changes. This is done, predictably, by following the user’s preferences. Sci-fi, right? No…it is reality.
This is called the Responsive Web Design. A bit of an abstract idea, but giving the web search for each user a bit more of a personal and comforting touch. Instead of media users getting frustrated trying to read or follow a website picked up on their phone that they were using on their laptop, the devices synchronize to each other and allow adaptations so that your site will fit any screen that you are working in.

More than just media queries and scripts, it is as much about adjusting screen sizes and images to fit the user’s needs. Be sure to go to Responsive Web Design - “What it is and how to use it’ by Kayla Knight for further understanding.
Responsive Web Designs make your web pages look more like the devices that you use, your laptops, your phones, your iPad. The image will hide, shrink, enlarge, whatever the need in order to give the clearest resolution and best image.
