Now We Must Focus on Mobile First, Desktop Second for Web Design

It’s safe to say that we can no longer design website for desktops as a priority. Without a doubt more visitors are using mobile devices to view websites and this can include android phones and tablets, and ofcourse iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads. Desktop devices such as laptops and desktop PC’s just aren’t being used as much. Laptop sales have plummeted right from the release of Windows 8 and the latest Windows 10 update hickups aren’t helping things with regards to sales on desktop and laptop PC’s.

Developers Still Failing To Take Notice

It still amazes me how many website developers are still launching websites which don’t function effectively whilst being viewed using a mobile device.. even visit Envato’s themeforest (fantastic source of premium CMS templates for WordPress, Drupal and Joomla) you can see a large number of these sites just don’t function properly using a mobile device because the developers are still designing websites for desktop priority, and mobiles second.
