Why you need a “responsive design” website

What is responsive design?
Responsive web design is one of the most important features of your website. A website is deemed “responsive” when it is designed and programmed to automatically reformat itself depending on the device on which it is viewed. The layout of any site should look its best and respond to viewers’ needs whether viewed on a desktop, tablet, laptop or smart phone. To accomplish that, the site needs to be “fluid.” All components including navigation, images, text content, and forms must reconfigure themselves to maximum advantage visually for the optimum user experience.
