What is responsive web design?

Digital design that adapts to different resolutions and formats depending on the device used to view a web page.

The methodology involves designing for high resolutions, such as for a desktop computer monitor or small laptop screen, and adapting the design for smaller screen sizes such as tablets and Smartphones. It must be borne in mind also that a screen display varies if the device has a horizontal or vertical format. In any event, a web page with a responsive web design will automatically adapt to the resolution of the device used.
