Wix recently introduced a new platform for creating websites – Editor X. Its stand-out feature is its ability to create fully responsive website design, which is what all Wix designers have been looking forward to for a long time.
What is responsive web design?
Briefly, responsive web design (RWD) means that a website can adapt to any screen size and deliver the best experience to users, whether they’re on their desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
Responsive web design works through Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), using various settings to display different style properties depending on the screen size, orientation, resolution and other characteristics of the user’s device. Whether viewed on a 27-inch iMac or from the screen of a mobile phone, the website is configured for an optimal viewing experience.
With the responsive web design approach, all images, fonts, and other HTML elements are scaled appropriately, maximising whatever screen size the user has (while so-called “adaptive” design stays the same for every single device).
