Rather, he explains, there are still many risks to the web's apparent wellbeing. This idea of creating walled gardens which are 'of the web', but not the web itself. They use web technologies and rely on the fundamentals of HTTP, but the resources they provide access to aren't addressable from the web. That scares me. Having indicators about where you can find content is a huge part of the web's power. That leads us to have a very myopic view of what the 'mobile web' is, and what web access on a mobile device needs to be.
There was stunned silence on the phone. We're surrounded by high-end devices and get into the mindset that this is the mobile web. We miss the low-end devices with Android, a bad processor and a crappy screen.
The experience is more of a continuum from a basic one that might just be text with links, right up to a fully interactive one. We liked the idea of a web experience that could adapt to the user. Those three things absolutely should be part of a page's progressive enhancement.
Therefore, when you visit the website on your computer browser, the site will automatically detect and select the best layout of the desktop screen.
How to make adaptive web design? While the great adaptive web design needs to follow the following steps: Step 1: Meta tags In order to adapt to the screen, many mobile browsers will put the HTML page in a larger viewport width usually greater than the screen width , you can set the viewport meta tag.
Fixed height is px, the content width is px, and the sidebar width is px. Step 3. Media Queries CSS3 media query is the key to adaptive web design, just like the conditional statement in a high-level language, telling the browser to render the page according to the different viewport width.
While currently, lots of websites have configured themselves to be mobile-optimized websites as they adopted adaptive web design on PC and mobile devices. But the layout of the adaptive design of the mobile devices may be different from the desktop version. So, when doing adaptive web design, web designers have much more work to do to meet the at least six different layout requirements.
Here are 5 excellent examples of adaptive web design for reference. Another big fear for Gustafson is to do with equal access.
That leads us to have a very myopic view of what the 'mobile web' is, and what web access on a mobile device needs to be.

We're surrounded by high-end devices and get into the mindset that this is the mobile web. We miss the low-end devices with Android, a bad processor and a crappy screen.
This brings us to Gustafson's primary hunting ground: The experience is more of a continuum from a basic one that might just be text with links, right up to a fully interactive one. Gustafson's philosophy centres around giving different people — or more correctly, different devices — different experiences.
We liked the idea of a web experience that could adapt to the user. Those three things absolutely should be part of a page's progressive enhancement. The lowest common denominator devices don't have media query support So, if you were to flip it the other way and practice responsive web design from a mobile-first perspective, that aligns perfectly with progressive enhancement.
For me, responsive is a technique that comes under the umbrella of progressive enhancement. Gustafson is at pains to point out that building with progressive enhancement doesn't necessarily mean sites cost more to make.
