Continuing on from our post last month regarding the positives of responsive web design, it’s now time to look at the other side of the matter and analyse the negative side of this type of design.

Whilst responsive design is praised for many reasons, one of the main gripes is the fact that when web components are scaled down, it can cause pages to become inaccessible.

Responsive websites are also known to sometimes take longer to load due images on the site being scaled down visually and not re-sized to help with faster loading times. This is usually a big problem when loading a web page on a cellular network. Wi-Fi users will not suffer this problem.
