Responsive web design, in short form is RWD is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing and interaction experience-easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling-across a wide range of devices. A site designed with RWD adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images and CSS3 media queries, an extension of the media rule. The fluid grid concept calls for page element sizing to be in relative units like percentages, rather than absolute units like pixels or points..
