Benefits of Responsive Websites

10 February, 2014, by Blogger, 0 Comments

Accessing the internet is now easier than ever. Users can browse while in line at the supermarket, waiting at the airport, and lying on the beach. They can also use a wide range of devices, including tablets, phones, kindles, laptops, and desktop computers.

What does this mean for web development? It’s now critical that your website is responsive.

What is Responsive Web Design?
Responsive web design is quickly becoming standard practice as developers aim to give users the best possible viewing experience on every type of mobile device. This means that the layout of the website will be liquid or fluid, allowing it to expand and shrink for each browser window size. Images are set to occupy the maximum display width on the device, using a percentage instead of a fixed size. Media queries are also used, which are able to detect different features of the display being used such as size, color depth, and resolution, and adjust accordingly.

Why choose a Responsive Website?
Did you know that an estimated 25% of web users are mobile only?
Not only does your website need to look good, but it also needs to work well when viewed on any type of device. It’s estimated that an internet user takes an average of just ten seconds to judge a website before clicking back to the search engine, and this time is almost halved for users on a mobile device as attention spans are even shorter. Make it easy for your clients to learn about what you do. Their attention should be on the services you offer, and not on figuring out how to close your pop-up on their iPhone, or zooming in on hard-to-read text.
