Hi everyone! I have visited a lot of websites and you must have visited more number of websites than me. In every website, you’ll be reading its content or downloading something. You must have a Laptop and Mobile also. What I just need to confirm is: “You all know much about websites!”

For knowing who wins this debate, we have to keep both the points of both the Terms.

Hi! I’m Responsive Website…

I’m the most elegant way of presenting website to people and I adjust myself to every pixel and screen size. I can just be coded by using CSS and all designers love coding me! I’m also loved by people because I give them a chance to see me on laptop even if they have kept their browser window small. All the users, do vote me in comments and support me!

Hi! I’m Redirecting Website…

I’m the website which is much easy to code! I just need to get a Javascript snippet which takes me to the mobile site in Mobile Device. All the developers love me! All the big brands and companies like Facebook, Twitter, Google use my criteria of redirecting mobile users to mobile website. I even give users a chance to switch between the viewports of various devices. All the users, do vote me in comments and support me to eradicate Responsive Websites!

Yeah! These both have kept their points and views about themselves in front of public. Now we will try to recognize the power of both the websites and make an appropriate analysis about what do people like and which one is practically good for humans.

First blame:

Responsive Website: Redirecting websites don’t look that good in Tabs and other Outscreen Devices.

Redirecting Website can be made good if they have third website/subdomain which triggers tablets. Mobile Websites are as same as Tab website is. It just creates a bit of difference when all the widths are set to 100%.

Second Blame:

Redirecting Website: Developers and Designers gets confused playing with Media Queries.

The trouble of Designers and Developers is nothing when people like the website which allows them to see all the contents in even small and bigger windows.

Redirecting Website: Providing coders a comfort while constructing websites is also necessary. They can’t just roll around finding the right pixel to change an element’s property.

All the works aren’t that easy. Making a redirecting website is a headache for Designers because they have to work in PHP so that whatever content is in Desktop Website should go to Mobile website. Sometimes, some elements are left invisible just because they have no space in Mobiles.

Third Blame:

Responsive Website: Redirecting Websites have been outdated since 2012.

Various Updated websites like Facebook and Twitter prefer redirecting users to mobile websites and they even give an option of switching between the devices.

I think that all your points are almost completed. Now, we will analyze your points and will keep them in front of public.

Responsive Website:


  1. Responsive websites are sleek and are much user friendly on all devices.
  2. Responsive websites never lose content in mobiles.
  3. Responsive websites works fast. (Because of no redirection)


  1. Responsive Websites are difficult to code. (Especially for developer. They need to look after every range of pixel)
  2. Responsive websites takes a lot of time to be constructed.
  3. Some types of high profile and dynamic websites cannot be made responsive.
  4. Therefore, big companies and brands never make their website responsive. (Facebook, Twitter, Google)

Redirecting Website:


  1. Redirecting websites need to be scripted and programmed or if it isn’t then it has to be coded 2 or more than 2 times.
  2. Redirecting Websites provide users to switch between devices and let users decide what they want to see.
  3. Redirecting website doesn’t need much designing part after the redirecting code is established for the website.


  1. Extraordinary devices which have a very different screen size cannot adapt redirecting website nicely.
  2. Generally, redirecting websites establish their own apps because of bad user experience on mobile browsers.
  3. Therefore, new companies have stopped using Redirecting Criteria for their website and the number of redirecting website in decreasing day by day.

This data literally tells that now its an end of Redirecting websites and after the launch of CSS3, Responsive websites are being used.

Thus, You will understand conclusion by color: Responsive Website VS Redirecting Website

  1. Yes… Even I prefer to design my websites in RESPONSIVE TYPE. Redirecting websites are outdated and should only be used if website is complex and cannot be responsive. (eg. Facebook)
