Adaptive Webdesign

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Web pages look different on different output devices. Depending on the display width, the content is arranged differently. Some content is hidden for small devices such as smartphones.

Definition Adaptive Webdesign

Adaptive WebdesignThe AWD, abbreviated as AWD, is a way of displaying websites in which the design adapts to the display width of mobile devices in predefined steps. So-called breakpoints are defined at which the display changes. For the iPhone portrait format, for example, the breakpoint is set at 320 pixels, for the iPad portrait format at 768 pixels. At these display widths, the display jumps around and shows many contents below each other, which are arranged next to each other on the desktop PC.

What are “adaptive web design images”?

Server-side queries ensure that devices with small displays receive smaller image files and end devices with high-resolution displays receive high-resolution graphics.

What is the difference to Responsive Web Design?

Adaptive Webdesign is often used as a synonym for Responsive Design, but it means something different. With Responsive Web Design, the display of the web pages adapts completely flexibly to the width of the browser window. With Adaptive Webdesign, on the other hand, a fixed layout (“adaptive web design layout”) is specified for certain sizes of the browser window.
