RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN — THE NEW FUTURE OF WEB DEVELOPMENT
Responsive Web Design (often abbreviated “RWD“) is an approach to Web design in which a site is developed — via CSS3 media queries, a flexible grid and resizable images — to provide an optimal viewing experience for a full range of viewing devices (eg tablets, mobile phones, desktop computers), with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling.
The RWD approach to Web design results in a website that provides a better user experience without requiring multiple versions of a site.
WordPress and Responsive Web Design
WordPress has stayed ahead of the curve on this fairly recent development in Web coding/programming and Dobson Web Design now develops most of its new projects utilizing RWD and WordPress.
Compatibility of Responsive Web Design with Browsers and Platforms
It’s pretty much all good news! Responsive Web Design works with all modern browsers — IE 8+, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera — both on Mac OS X and Windows.
