Can anybody tell me what responsive design exactly is?
I work in a firm and they have a site which are just a small version off the website. And if you turn your device to landscape - it gets a little bit bigger. This is not responsive design or is it? What i mean is that a mini version off a site, which is totally useless for reading is just a convenient way to show your website on a small device. Is it not just the browser converting it?
By the way what is this method called in a design world?
What I want is a way to show and use a website on a small device. When I surf on my smart phone or tablet, i ran into sites which is converting beautiful to a functional and readable website ( it has a "Hanburger" menu, and I know there are some thougths about this kind of menu). Is this a responsive site?
What about horizontal versus vertical. Should a website convert automatic? or just horizontal
edit: I just want to know the definition of responsive design Because i am a little bit confused. Is a mini version of a website, where you have to slide your fingers for getting some kind of content or is "the Hamburger menu" the right way?
Maybe someone could point me to a website which have some best practice articles Thats all
Thanks in advance
