CSS3 Media Queries CSS2 allows you to specify stylesheet for specific media type such as screen or print. Now CSS3 makes it even more efficient by adding media queries. You can add expressions to media type to check for certain conditions and apply different stylesheets. For example, you can have one stylesheet for large displays and a different stylesheet specifically for mobile devices. CSS3 Media Queries (demo) Check my demo and resize your browser window to see it in action. Max Width The following CSS will apply if the viewing area is smaller than 600px. If you want to link to a separate stylesheet, put the following line of code in between the <head> tag. Min Width The following CSS will apply if the viewing area is greater than 900px. Multiple Media Queries You can combine multiple media queries. Device Width The following code will apply if the max-device-width is 480px (eg. iPhone display). For iPhone 4 The following stylesheet is specifically for iPhone 4 (credits: Thomas Maier). For iPad Sample Sites Colly

The Responsinator Responsive Web Layouts for Mobile Screens: Intro, Tips and Examples Designers have it tougher now than before. We not only have to design for stationary devices, but also mobile devices like the tablet and smartphones, and since we are talking about a lot of different screen sizes and resolutions here, it’s a huge task to shoulder. In light of this, responsive web design could be the best solution. It offers more than just a simple mobile template; instead, your entire site layout is designed to be flexible enough to fit into any possible screen resolution. With such a fluid design scheme there are obvious benefits and drawbacks. How Responsive Design Works When I use the word “responsive” in terms of web design I mean that the entire layout responds based on the user’s screen resolution. Responsive design is all about creating a homogeneous experience regardless of the browser or device screen size. Why Design for Mobile? It has become evident that more users are going mobile, and not just for on-the-go web browsing either. (Image Source: bradfrostweb)

Responsive Design’s Dirty Little Secret | The truth is that fluid grids are broken. Well… perhaps just cracked a bit. Responsive Web design, as Ethan Marcotte defines it, is simply a fluid grid, fluid images and media queries. I put errors in quotes, because the issue actually has to do with the CSS spec. IE 6 and 7 took the former strategy, which meant layouts often broke completely as the final grid item in a row ran out of room in its parent container and was forced to the next row. How bad could it get? Unfortunately, if you use percentage-based gutters and padding, the problem gets even worse. Given this shocking little fact, it’s no wonder that so many of the examples of responsive design on have no obvious “box” wrapping designs that might make the flaw obvious in some browsers. To explore these errors yourself, you can view the 10-column demo page that exposes the rounding errors in various browsers. What the %%%% do we do? The best solution Wait…what about CSS3 flexbox? Don’t allow rounding errors to compound

A Simple Device Diagram for Responsive Design Planning Updated for 2015! Check out Analytics-driven responsive web design planning At Metal Toad we're big fans of responsive design, but a common snag in the responsive planning process comes when choosing what device widths to design to. There are an ever-increasing number of devices with different screen resolutions to take into account with a responsive design, so we put together a simple but handy diagram that lists the most common device widths as of the present, along with overlays for potential device width ranges. The Diagram Here's the result! A couple of things to note: As the labeling indicates, the top of the diagram is portrait orientations and the bottom is landscape orientations for devices. Our Suggested Layouts The debate got started yesterday because we encountered a situation where only 3 layouts were called for, versus the four that is designed with. 3 Layouts Design Targets: Layout 1: iPhone (320/640px) in Portrait is a good candidate for the PSDs. 4 Layouts
