People used to look at websites on their computers at home or at work. The advent of wireless broadband service allowed for the untethering of the computer from the wall and wildfire spread of smartphones and tablets in recent years, that’s quickly changed. You can no longer optimize your website for a desktop screen—you have to consider the user experience from any device.
This isn’t as hard as it used to be, though. With responsive design, the layout of your website adapts to the screen size. This ensures that everyone has a similar experience with your website and no one has to zoom or resize to read the content. Meanwhile, the design is intentional, no matter whether it is viewed on a desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet, or other device.
