Responsive Design vs Server-side Mobile Solutions an Infographic
–> http://hosting.ber-art.nl goes Mobile!
If the average mobile user is only willing to wait a maximum of four seconds for content to load on their devices, it makes no sense to use an approach that may slow down your site’s loading time.
Yet some are choosing to use responsive design for their websites – a method by which both desktop computers and mobile devices always download an entire web page, along with its added code.
The statistics in our new infographic show why we believe the better choice for many high-traffic, large-volume sites is a fast and flexible server-side solution.
When it comes to Server-side Mobile Solutions options and WordPress, there’s new discussion in the web development community about the merits of responsive design, while less talk of alternate options like WPtouch & WPtouch Pro. This post explores some of the key differences between the two approaches.
In a recent blog post, 5 Reasons Why Responsive Design Is Not Worth It, Tom Ewer, of Manage WP examines the shortcomings of responsive design and laments the lack of arguments against it on the Internet. Though I’ve come across a few other voices here and there that speak less favourably of responsive design, these comments seem somewhat lost in a sea of content being produced by its supporters.
This is not to say that Responsive Design is not a valuable approach to mobile website design— I’m speaking here about the lack of discussion regarding alternate approaches.
