  1. Interesting article. It’s refreshing to hear some criticism of responsive design. However, I think having the ability for a website to adapt to the device is very important. Mobile users probably won’t be sitting comfortably at their desk. They might be in the middle of walking down a street or riding a bus on the way to work. They might not even have both hands free, in which case precision zooming becomes difficult. Some more points: Usability – I agree with Tristan, the user doesn’t necessarily expect the website to reflect the “desktop layout”. In fact, usability expert Jakob Nielsen recommended in a recent newsletter that designers should build a separate mobile-optimized version. While this seems quite extreme, responsive layouts offer a lot of the same benefits for a lot less effort. ROI – Obviously you should be using analytics software to track the percentage of mobile users and gauge the ROI from developing a responsive layout. However, mobile browsing is expected to overtake desktop browsing within a few years so future-proofing your site is something worth considering. Load Time Benefit – True, there usually isn’t a load time benefit. However, there are developers working on this (e.g. Responsive Images Community Group). Since a traditional desktop layout doesn’t reduce the load time benefit either, this isn’t really a good reason not to use responsive design. Cost – Yes, it does take longer and costs more. You do need to be able justify the extra work. Having said that, there are a lot of templates and frameworks out there that are responsive. Using these can dramatically speed up development time and give you the benefits of responsive design with little extra cost. Responsive layouts aren’t without their problems (they still suck at displaying tables) but I think they’re a step forward in the evolution of web design.
