A responsive website is one that adapts to
the screen size of the device where the website is
being served. So when the page resizes, the
layout adjusts according to the fit of the screen.
• New devices with new screen sizes are being
developed every day, and each of these devices may
be able to handle variations in size, functionality and

A fluid grid is a way of defining a layout in terms
of proportions. Thus, when the dimensions of a
screen are shrunk, the layout with all elements
will reduce in proportion.
• When any device is requesting for a web
site then images get flexible for that
• With the help of media queries, you can
also add flexible image sizes and embed
flexible video displays on your responsive

RWD allows you to design flexible screen
resolution that is fluid and adapts to multiple
screen sizes (such as ultrabooks, iPads,
iPhones, HDTVs, android phones and tablets),

for the tiny screen.
• Without media queries, responsive websites wouldn’t

specific style elements according to the width of the

• New CSS3 features also include orientation (portrait vs.
landscape), device-width, min-device-width and more.

even for landscape vs. portrait orientations.

or screen width that a certain set of styles would apply
• If anything is below this limit, the style sheet link or
styles will be ignored.
