Responsive Web Design
Today people use many different devices to browse the internet whether for business or pleasure. Responsive web design (RWD) is the process of constructing your web page so that no matter what screen size a visitor is using your website will respond and self adjust to fit that screen size.
The responsive web design technical process is using W3C standards, CSS3 media queries with fluid proportion-based grids, to adapt the layout to the viewing environment, and also flexible images that would responsively adjust on-the-fly. As a result, users across a broad range of devices and browsers will have access to a single source of content, laid out so as to be easy to read and navigate with a optimal user interface, and minimize panning and scrolling.
Responsive web design is not intended to replace mobile user interface design although it can remove the need to design a separate mobile sites, particularly on content focused sites.
