The Growing Challenge:
Day by day, the number of devices, platforms, and browsers that need to work with your site grows. With the introduction of many tablets, tons of new internet accessible devices, smartphones and technologies, We have been faced with designing for more monitor resolutions and devices than ever before. This acceleration of users accessing Web content from mobile devices rather than traditional desktop and laptop computers has posed a difficult challenge to business owners as well as webmasters in presenting the websites to mobile visitors.
Responsive Web Design:
Responsive web design represents a fundamental shift in how we’ll build websites for the decade to come. Responsive websites respond to the device that accesses it.
Rather than designing multiple sites for different-sized devices, Responsive Web design fluid layout approach designs one site but specifies how it should appear on varied devices. Responsive Web design has emerged as both one of the hottest trends in Web design and development, as well as the preferred method to address these challenges.

(i) Fluid Grids: The first key idea behind responsive design is the usage of what’s known as a fluid grids. Fluid grids go a few steps beyond the traditional liquid layout. Instead of designing a layout based on rigid pixels or arbitrary percentage values, a fluid grid is more carefully designed in terms of proportions. This way, when a layout is squeezed onto a tiny mobile device or stretched across a huge screen, all of the elements in the layout will resize their widths in relation to one another.
