    Sorry, I don’t like leaving negative feedback on blog posts, but in this case I feel I must.

    Obviously this has been taken from another website, but its author clearly doesn’t understand what Responsive Design is. Given he’s a web designer, that’s a little worrying. My guess is that it’s a re-purposed post on Mobile websites, but he’s heard Responsive is now the way to go, so changed its focus.

    Inaccurate articles lead to confusion in readers without a basic understanding of the subject and I’d really expect better of your editing procedures in posting such a weak fluff-piece. My advice to the reader would be to ignore the advice in this post – there are plenty of better posts available on the subject.

    For the record, with a Mobile website, you might differentiate between it and a “native site”, but a Responsive site simply re-styles, or re-positions content on each page – there’s no separate website.

    Hi Darren – We appreciate your feedback on the above blog post. It seems there was disagreement over the use of the term “native website” when referring to responsive design.

    We agree that responsive websites are using the design of the native site, and in the end it is simply a singular website. I think the confusion came from the article still trying to explain how a native site should change when going responsive, but I don’t believe that discredits the five points made in the article.
