How to Make Websites Mobile-Friendly With Responsive Web Design + More

It’s not too much of a wild guess to say that you’re watching this video on your phone.

In fact, a very large number of people access the Internet from their phones every day. That’s why responsive web design and everything else that makes websites mobile-friendly is so crucial.

You can check for responsive web design in a few different ways.
