Responsive web design has become more important as the amount of mobile traffic now accounts for more than half of total internet traffic.
Hence Google boosts the search engine ranking of web sites that are mobile friendly if the search was made from a mobile device.
Responsive web design (RWD) allows web pages to be viewed perfectly on all platforms and screen sizes.Content that displays perfectly on a large desktop PC may be hidden from a smaller screen such as a mobile phone, or repositioned.
A good example of this is the mobile phone menu.
It displays on the mobile phone in a different way to the destop menu.
A website designed with responsive layouts adapts to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion based grids,flexible images and CSS media queries.
Media queries allow the page to use different CSS style rules based on characteristics of the device the site is being displayed on, most commonly the width of the browser.
Try this website on a different device such as a desktop, laptop tablet or mobile phone to see the responsive layout in action.
