Internet Devices‘Responsive’ web design is a concept that can now be used on Smart phones, tablets, and previewed on modern HTML5 compatible browsers such as Firefox and Google Chrome, and even on incompatible browsers such as Internet Explorer 8. It means your web site will look good on all screen sizes,  including tablets and smart phones.

I program in the ability to dynamically move elements of your web site around on the screen so that dimensions, positioning of elements on the page, and font sizes all change according to the size of screen they are viewed on. It’s more work than a static site, but it is a cheaper option than paying for a separate mobile version of your web site. The variety of devices available to view web pages is increasing all the time, and so making a web site responsive is the only way to future proof it.

Desktop users try dragging your browser window to make it smaller and you will see what happens the content on this web site. It should still be clearly legible right down to smart phone portrait size (320 pixels wide).

Now if the site does not resize it means your browser does not support HTML5 fully which is understandable because it is not actually an official standard yet. You just need to update your browser to the latest version and it will work.

All browsers on smart phones and tablets will support HTML5/CSS3 fully so sites will ‘respond’ when viewed on them
