Responsive web design, or RWD, allows a website to respond to the different sizes of screens being used by users while keeping the same look and feel of the website (Firdaus, 2013). I believe that a responsive web design is crucial for any website to have. While I was doing a user experience survey on devices used, it was apparent that all devices from mobile, tablet, laptop, and desktop are all used by all different people.With all of the different technology out there and all of the different devices that so many different people use, websites need to be able to adapt to these sizes, and RWD allows this to happen.
On the design side of things, I really like how RWD adapts and changes depending on the screen size being used, if you’re on your computer right now, drag your browser size around and you will see how it changes. I really love this concept of web design and I hope to be able to use it in any website that I create.
