4 Tips to Speed Up Your Responsive Website on Mobile | Responsive Website Design | Scoop.it
Introduction: When it comes to multi device web design, you really can’t beat responsive.

Via Agathe-Sevegrand
UniqueWebsites's insight:

As many people leave a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load and, as mobile websites can take 2 seconds to establish a radio connection, this only leaves 1 second before you lose an estimated 40% of users. Thus speed for mobile users is all important.

 

This article gives tips for reducing loading time.

Creating CSS Image Galleries in Responsive Websites

Creating CSS Image Galleries in Responsive Websites | Responsive Website Design | Scoop.it

Fully responsive CSS image galleries that avoid slow-loading javascript and are completely flexible; galleries work on all browsers and on PCs, iPads and mobiles.

UniqueWebsites's insight:

These CSS image galleries provide an alternative to slow-loading javascript and allow designers the flexibility to create image galleries with whatever layout they choose.

 

This tutorial, sample code and infographic gives any web designer with a working knowledge of CSS and HTML the ability to create fully responsive CSS image galleries that scale up and down on PCs, tablets and mobiles. The galleries have been tested on IE8, IE9, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Apple iPad and Nokia mobile.

 

A single line of script inserted into the header overcomes the problems associated with hover images on touch devices (namely that of being unable to make the enlarged image disappear by clicking elsewhere on the screen). This same line of code also overcomes the problem of the mobile/tablet menus not disappearing when a different part of the screen is touched.

Interesting article - it states that RWD is current but may not be best for the future. Having made some websites responsive this year, I have to admit that it's a lot of work for some fairly minimal returns.

But as Google recommends responsive websites, that's one important factor surely.
