What is a Responsive Website?

Responsive web design provides a single website that performs optimally across a selection of screen sizes and platforms, from mobile through to desktop computers.  The website responds to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website will automatically switch to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities. Responsive design provides a website that will look its best regardless of how a visitor chooses to view your website online.
