A Responsive CSS Background Image Technique - Inspect Element

A Responsive CSS Background Image Technique - Inspect Element | Responsive WebDesign | Scoop.it
gonzodesign's insight:

 I came across the need to make a background image responsive, keeping the same aspect ratio at different widths. The limitation was that we couldn’t change any HTML or back end code so changing it to a simple imgwas out of the question.

Instant Fluid Videos with Viewport Width Units - Tuts+ Web Design Tutorial

Instant Fluid Videos with Viewport Width Units - Tuts+ Web Design Tutorial | Responsive WebDesign | Scoop.it

Intrinsic ratios are an approach to expanding and contracting elements on a web page, allowing them to be fluid whilst at the same time constraining their proportions. Thierry Koblentz first proposed the idea back in 2009.

gonzodesign's insight:

Thankfully we now have access to the vw sizing unit and as long as you don’t have to support old Android devices or IE8, it’s relatively safe to use. Super easy responsive videos.

Thoughts About Responsive Navigation On Mobile Devices - Vanseo Design

It’s all quite confusing, and, honestly, I find it to be much ado about nothing.
