responsive vs. adaptive?

  • # February 19, 2013 at 11:45 am

    so i usually create a container wrap at 960px.
    then I make the website and pull out the 960px and replace it with 80%. (and box-sizing of border-box and im set)
    Everything inside was made of percents.
    It is now responsive and with a few media queires things are usually working fine. -fully responsive.

    But I find issues with images in the sidebar, or where i have 2 125px ads floated next to each other falling down and looking ugly as the viewport gets thinner.

    so i make media queries to set the sidebar to a min width before letting it disappear altogether.
    In a way this is more adaptive then it is responsive.

    Also am I allowed to make ads disappear? is that wrong and illegal?
