Home Forums Other Responsive sites Re: Responsive sites


I think users are more focused on the information rather than the transitions of media queries. It serves a great purpose to not have to create mobile sites like we used to.

“The problem with responsive websites is that they change on the user without proper reason (a different device is not a proper reason from a users point of view, and neither is rescaling the browser window) and more importantly: without warning.”

So you want the website to alert you that it will be changing it’s layout as you rescale or use a smaller device? Honestly, I think you’re misunderstanding the whole purpose of responsive websites and design.

Responsive sites are catering to the user on a mobile scale. The purpose is to serve your content to all devices without limitation.
