It also begs the question that, if it isn’t needed on mobile, then should it be on the desktop version?Responsive design furnishes the best possible experience at the mobile level but allows for enhancements to the site’s design and functionality as it increases in screen size.
Responsive design is a concept where, a single version of your website is optimized for all devices. This is typically achieved using CSS to display the appropriate items and their styles to suit the viewing device. CSS can be used to adjust an HTML element’s size, color, style, etc. It can move elements to a different position on the page or even hide them altogether. CSS media queries can be used to determine different styles based on the size of the user’s window. Using responsive design, your website will often appear to “adjust” itself as you resize your browser.
Responsive design seems to be a very logical way to go about designing your website. Having said this, it can take quite a bit more effort to create a website using responsive design. Also, depending on your website, you might find that responsive design doesn’t quite cater for all your needs.
Mobile Device Detection
A common method of creating a mobile website is to use mobile device detection. This is where you use a server-side script to detect whether the user is using a mobile device or not. If they are, you display your content in a way that is optimized to mobile devices. For example, your mobile version might have smaller (and less) images. Also, the navigation might be positioned differently.
One of the main differences between desktop websites and mobile websites (when it comes to layout) is that, while desktop websites usually have their navigation near the top of the page, mobile websites usually have their navigation at the bottom. The reason for this is simple. Mobile website users don’t want half (or all) of their screen filled up with the same navigation every time they view a new page on your website. Imagine if a user decides to view say, four pages on your website. Now, imagine them getting annoyed at you – because every time they view a new page, they have to scroll down just to view the article!
