In a world of mobile devices, new browsers, and changing standards each page of your website can require an unmanageably-large number of separate designs. The emerging practice of responsive web design employs techniques that allow a single page to efficiently adapt to whatever device or platform loads it. For web designers and developers, this means shorter deployment times, more maintainable sites and applications, more consistent presentation, and happier users.
The Responsive Web is an easy-to-read introduction to responsive web design packed with instantly-useful tips and techniques and dozens of examples that show you exactly how to benefit from this valuable approach. You'll learn innovative ways to use what you already know along with design techniques leveraging new HTML5 and CSS3 features. Along the way, you'll discover strategies to balance apps and websites, manage browser incompatibilities, and learn when multiple versions are the best option.
