My Site is Now Responsive

Responsive Web DesignI guess I’ve again been itching to redesign my site, but due to the several million other things that I still need to do, I guess I’ll probably just save that for next year. Instead, the geek in me decided to fiddle with my codes and make my site responsive. Mid last year, A List Apart and Ethan Marcotte released an article on Responsive Web Design so I’m kinda late to the party! To anyone who isn’t familiar with it, it is an approach in which you create a layout for your site that “responds” to the width of the device you’re using. That means you no longer need create a separate mobile version of your site that needs to adapt to the screens of the many different mobile devices out there. How cool is that? As Jeffrey Zeldman said it himself, Responsive is the new black. But really, it’s not just a fad or some kind of buzz word. It is, I believe, one of the many things a Web Designer must have in their toolbox.

You should look at optimising super-dawghouse.png, it is 245K and took my browser 7 seconds to fully load. Everything else loaded pretty quickly tho.

It really looks nice. I’ve tested it on my Galaxy Tab P-1000 and it looks just awesome. The fonts are of proper size and the text on your site is really convenient to read.
