Responsive design means that the website’s layout adapts to whichever screen resolution you have on your device. This adaptation takes place using a number of predefined dimensions, representing the most commonly used screen resolution settings on computers, tablets and smartphones. It means that the content of Stralfors’ external websites is the same, whichever device you’re using.
“Good responsive design makes it easy for you to access content without having to zoom or scroll unnecessarily,” explains Martin Sterner.
Why responsive design?
The number of people using their smartphone or tablet to browse is growing rapidly. 7 per cent of visitors to stralfors.se in January 2012 used a mobile or tablet. The corresponding figure for January 2013 was 14 per cent and for January 2014 it was 18 per cent.
“This makes it increasingly important to present our content just as well on tablets and smartphones as on a computer,” says Martin Sterner.
It is predicted that during the first half of 2014 the number of connected mobiles will be higher than the number of connected computers worldwide.
