Responsive Web design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size (Desktop/Laptop, Tablet, Smartphones etc.), platform (Windows, Android, iOS etc.) and orientation (Landscape, Portrait). The practice consists of a mix of flexible layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad or Smartphone , the website should automatically switch to accommodate for the resolution, image size and scripting abilities. In other words, the website should have the technology to automatically respond to the user’s preferences. This would eliminate the need for a different design and development for each new gadget in the market.
