What does it mean for a website to be responsive?

What is Responsive Web Design?

Just like I hear a lot of people talk about a website being dynamic; there is so much noise about responsive websites.

I call it noise because many clients who don’t understand the meaning ignorantly request for it. Sure, responsive website is the real deal these days, but you as a web design client needs to understand what it means.

A responsive design is an interactive design that automatically adjusts to the size of the screen in a fluid, seamless way. You can actually watch this in action if you’re using one of our responsive designs on your site. Drag your browser window small and watch what happens to the navigation and content of your site.
You can see that not only does content rearrange to better fit in a small screen, the navigation also collapses into a menu that’s easy to use with your fingers.
So, aside from being a marvel of CSS and Javascript technological prowess, how does this benefit you? It’s simple: mobile traffic accounts for more than half of all website traffic. This is an incredible statistic; greater than half of the people viewing your site may be using a phone or tablet!
Google recognized this trend early on and began taking mobile-friendliness into account when ranking search results. So what’s the best way to make sure your site is both mobile friendly and desktop-friendly? You guessed it – a responsive design. And the best part is that Nihtem Limited has made it super-easy to have a great looking site no matter what device your visitors are using.
