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. With an increase in the use of smartphones and tablets, as well as internet connectivity via WiFi, we’ve seen mobile web browsing skyrocket. This is why being Mobile Friendly is very important. 

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

Sites should be optimised for a variety of mobile devices screen sizes to cater for all visitors. In fact, on devices with small screens, it does not make sense. Sometimes it’s impossible to have the same view of the site that you get with a PC screen. A site optimised for mobile devices will adapt to its screen resolution. 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 according to the specific device dimensions. This saves the visitor with display loading times and costs for the internet connection.
