Responsive Design vs Adaptive Design: What’s Best in 2020

By: Techliance



When it comes to web designing and programming, a lot of companies are taking the concept of websites way too seriously. Gone are the days when any kind of website was acceptable. A comparison like responsive design vs adaptive design helps in deciding the web design strategy.


In today’s stringent market, websites are like your contact card that you slip on a table to a customer. They help customers identify with your brand and what you are all about. As a result, the overall look and feel, aesthetics and most of all “appeal factor” are some of the primary constituents of a good website. So, a perfect website can help your business standout from the competition in 2020.

If the users are able to navigate smoothly to their required screen or function, then the website is a hit. Otherwise unhappy users imply that business will not be able to capitalize through the website. Taking all these considerations into account help in the web design and development journey in 2020.




Responsive Design vs Adaptive Design: What’s Best in 2020


Websites can either be responsive or adaptive in terms of their design. The Internet has a split of opinion when it comes to the argument between responsive design vs adaptive design as both of these web design types have their pros and cons.


By definition, an adaptive design is the “old school” way of web deigning. It’s the way websites have been typically designed throughout the years. Meaning that the design has different layouts that adapt to specific screen sizes. Adaptive websites have progressive enhancement where that have JavaScript (JS) based script to change the site’s HTML markup based on the device’s capabilities.


When it comes to responsive designs, they are usually a single static page which looks the same and resizes content across all devices. Responsive websites use media queries to target breakpoints that scale images, wrap text, and adjust the layout so the site can fit any screen size. It can be done with HTML and CSS, or HTML5 and CSS3.
