Responsive Web Design Theory

Responsive web design (or “RWD”) is a type of web design that provides a customized viewing experience for different browser platforms. A website created with RWD will display a different interface depending on what device is used to access the website.

Preview & Testing: How are end users viewing your social media online presence?

Our screen centric society expect to see a website load and display properly on their mobile device(s) and platform(s) in just seconds. A browser emulator tool can be used to see how web design displays on a variety of screens.

Examples of browser emulator tools to preview your website or social media page online include:

Screenfly will enable you to view a website on a variety of devices and it also has options to enable or disable scrolling or even to rotate the display: http://quirktools.com/screenfly/

ResponsivePX’s main feature that distinguishes it from other browser emulators is its capability to resize the website pixel-by-pixel: http://responsivepx.com/

Type in any website address to Responsive.is and it will automatically change its size depending on the device you choose to test your site: http://responsive.is/
