The term "Responsive Web Design" refers to an approach where a designer creates a web page that responds to or resizes itself according to the device. This may be an oversized computer screen, a laptop, a smartphone, or a tablet. With the growth of smartphones and tablets, the responsive site design has become an essential tool for businesses with a digital presence. More people are viewing websites on small screens as a result of smartphones and tablets. Responsive design involves having a web page that has different elements so they respond differently depending on the device. For example, the desktop version might have three columns. However, when viewing that same layout on a smaller tablet, it will force you to scroll horizontally. Or elements may be hidden from view or appear distorted. the situation is further complicated by the fact that tablets can be viewed both in portrait and landscape orientation. The layout of websites can be difficult on a smartphone. Large images may disrupt the layout. Sites that are graphics-heavy can load slowly on smartphones. In contrast, if a site uses a responsive design, then the tablet version may automatically adjust to display just two columns. In this case, they may be stacked vertically. Or perhaps the user may be able to swipe over to view other columns. Stacking them vertically, or possibly allowing the user to swipe over and view other columns. Images will resize, rather than be distorted or cut off, instead of shifting from right to left.
