Are you curious why ASTRALCOM’s new website leverages responsive web design? For starters, we wanted to be able to reach readers across multiple devices and offer our viewers a positive experience on every device. Whether you’re viewing our new site on your laptop, tablet, or smartphone, our new site is designed to adapt to the screen size of your device.
Responsive web design is a web design approach which adjusts the page layout, including what font sizes and image sizes are displayed and it can even juggle page elements, showing or hiding them depending on the available screen real estate, to allow the site visitor to easily read and navigate with a minimum of resizing or scrolling.
According to the Mashable.com article, “Why 2013 Is the Year of Responsive Web Design,” tablet sales are expected to exceed 100 million this year alone. Projections show their sales numbers may topple notebooks next year. Mashable.com also states that the shift to mobile is happening at an extraordinary speed.
You can test how ASTRALCOM’s brand new responsive website adapts to different sized screens, by simply resizing your browser right now. As you make it smaller, watch how the page elements move around and size appropriately for the size of your browser window. If you’re on a tablet or smartphone, you’re already experiencing our responsive design.
