Second, to expect that one layout will look great on your 23” full hd monitor and with the same quality on 320×480 smartphone is ridiculous. One can argue that there are many smartphones with 480×800 – true. However the most likely way web will develop is to have layout optimized for monitors and have a second css definition or layout for mobile devices or devices with lower resolution. I’m dealing with web design 12 years now and at least 8 of them there were some self proclaimed web guru that was saying how the future is to the fluid design. Funny how I still see at least 8 out of 10 sites with fixed size:-)
I was not saying the most, but the most newer. Me myself, happy with all alternatives. Responsive web makes us as web designers have more options.
Thanks for the data, Seal. More and more opinions about responsive web.

soon, you will have it and need a responsive web…:)

I see clients understanding and asking for responsive the same way they currently ask for HTML5 .By this I don’t mean to say responsive is bad, but rather that it’s a cool train to be on, even if many don’t know if it’s the right train to take
Needs that will determine, right?

Moreover, I think that hypertrophied responsiveness as we see it today will pass relatively soon. Giving way for more smart responsive layout: e.g. some elements will be enlarged on mobile devices, but overall look, feel and functions will be the same of non-mobile version.P.S. All IMHO
At least, the option market is now added by this new trend…
||+520214|Monkify said-|| I think that’s hard to say. It’s really only become such a popular thing recently due to the increase in the mobile/tablet market. It will definitely become more widely adapted this year, but I don’t think fixed-width is going away completely anytime soon.
I regard it as an option. And hopefully the market also think as I thought…
