In the past, designing a website meant we only had to cater for desktop computers and laptops which have roughly the same screen size and resolutions. But with the development of the internet and the devices used to surf it, there is also the increasing need to adjust the way websites are developed to suit devices such as tablets and smartphones. Also, dimensions of desktop monitors are also changing – becoming bigger and changing aspect form 4:3 to 16:9.
Responsive Website Design (RWD) is the technique used by ecommerce website solutions providers that makes use of fluid layouts that rearranges the content to fit the screen size. With the use of RWD, your website may be accessed and read from any browser including on your smartphone and tablet, and viewed as you intended it to display.
Compared to creating a separate mobile specific website, the benefits of engaging the services of a mobile web design in Los Angeles company to create a website which is responsive to the user, is you need only create one website and advertise and link to the one URL.
If you have already created your website with RWD techniques, it’s important to test it to make sure that it does display correctly in multiple platforms. You could check it the traditional way by opening your site through different devices. You start with opening the site from a desktop. Then, you may do so with a laptop as well. After this, you can check it with your iPad or your tablet. Then finally, you can use the smartphone to open and test your website.
Alternatively, you can use testing tools which makes the process easier and more convenient. These can help you identify which devices your website is and is not compatible with.
Here are Some Examples Tool which Can Help you Test your Website:
