Why “mobile friendly” is no longer good enough

The use of smartphones and tablets for surfing the Web is increasing day by day in an impressive way. The spread of smartphones and tablets and use of them to connect to the internet via WiFi has seen an increase in visits to websites made through mobile devices.

This is certainly true as tablets and smartphones enable you to see view sites, but a site designed and built specifically to work optimally on a smartphone definitely saves time waiting for viewing and internet bandwidth to the user.

A site optimized for mobile devices can provide different versions of the site depending on the device used by the visitor. In fact on devices with small screens it does not make sense and sometimes you can not have the same view of the site that you have with PC screens. A site optimized for mobile devices adapts to the screen resolution of the device and from there the images will shrink automatically granting a good display on all devices. With special techniques it can also make sure that the browser loads images differently in terms of weight depending on the specific device. This saves the visitor with display loading times and costs for the internet connection.

This website is optimized for mobile devices. If you’re not viewing a tablet or a smartphone, try to re-size the browser window to see what I’m talking about.
