When testing the devices, there are 4 main areas to cover, feature phones, smart phones with low level support, smart phones and tablets. The primary tablet market will be 7-inch devices up to 720x1280 pixels with the lowest smart phone being 240x360 pixels. Currently, we are only approaching devices that are not conforming to desktops, so smart TV’s, games consoles and other exotic devices are test, desktops are not.
.net Magazine is running a series of articles on their site right now as part of their responsive week. There’s some great stuff in there: Paul is writing a series of articles—one a day—going step-by-step through the design and development of a responsive site, and Wilto has written a great summation of the state of responsive images.
New media on the Internet has gone through a rigorous process of quality control and best practices for web developers. Back just a few years ago Flash video was the most prominent solution. But with HTML5 support in all modern browsers the solution to embedding audio/video media has become a lot less complicated.
In this tutorial I want to explore how we can build a very simple webpage for embedding mobile-responsive HTML5 video. I have included two versions of the page – one with standard HTML5 video and the other using Video.js. The HTML is almost identical which shows how much progress HTML video has made in a few short years. But you can check out a demo of both pages from the links I’ve included below.
The browser is a hostile development environment and supporting a wide range of desktop browsers can be tough work. One of the immediate challenges we discovered when we first started the responsive...

In 1927, Jan Tschichold published his seminal manifesto: Die neue Typographie. As with all manifestos, it’s a work of vision, new ways we should think; a work of unwavering principles on how we should design printed material. Abandonment of serif typefaces aside, one of the guiding principles was pointed out to me by my university lecturer regarding designing the perfect layout:
" largely forgotten today, methods and rules upon which it is impossible to improve have been developed for centuries. To produce perfect books these rules have to be brought to life."
The London Device lab hopes to make testing responsive web sites and applications easier for developers by making a range of devices open and free to use.
As a developer it's hard to get a hold of / be able to afford more than 2 devices a year so I was inspired by Jeremy Keith and Remy Sharp when they mentioned the lab at Clearleft and decided London needed this too.
Oh my God, oh my God. Apple thinks it has a bright idea, but craps all over your beautiful responsive sites. Even worse, it’s being inconsistent from iPhone to iPad. I don’t know what they were smoking when they thought this up, but I want some.
