Responsive web design (RWD) is a web development approach that creates dynamic changes to the appearance of a website, depending on the screen size and orientation of the device being used to view it. RWD is one approach to the problem of designing for the multitude of devices available to customers, ranging from tiny phones to huge desktop monitors.
RWD has advantages over developing separate sites for different device types. The use of a single code base can make development faster, compared to developing 1 site for desktops and another for mobile users. Having one website also means you only have to manage one website, not two.
RWD is also relatively future-proof in that it can support new breakpoints needed at any time. If a 4-inch device or 12-inch device takes off in the market, the code can support the new devices.
Mobile sales have already overtaken desktop sales, and mobile Internet usage is predicted to overtake desktop internet usage by 2015. Therefore it is critical that users can view your Website using either a 320px wide screen device or a 2048px desktop screen.
Responsive web design is recommended by Google and many other experts, it allows one website to provide a great user-experience across many devices and screen sizes, and it also makes managing your SEO strategy easier.
