Implementing Scrollbars for RWD

Horizontal scrolling could be quite annoying while you’re browsing the net on your mobile. With conventional web designing, the horizontal scrollbar appears with the site when there is a reduction in the viewport size. This is a prominent drawback that all of us experience. With responsive web designs, web browsing even on a much smaller screen of your mobile gives you a pleasant user-experience. In RWD, the browsers are enabled to adapt to media queries placed before them.

 

At Willco Web Design, we understand these issues and employ responsive web design for Warwickshire sensibly in creating fluid and legible websites. We make sure that you enjoy a more pleasing experience while you browse the web even on smaller screens. This is how we do it:

Creating Various Layouts for Smaller Screens

By creating a change in the layouts for smaller screens, the image displays can be realized as being stacked upon one another instead of being placed side by side. By reducing the number of columns for the text, the need of a horizontal scrolling is avoided altogether!

Planning out the Resolutions for RWD

We are well aware of the importance of identifying resolutions for responsive websites that we create. Similarly, based on media queries for these resolutions we develop CSS codes to support user-friendly layouts. Thus, we are able to create wonderfully fluid websites that scale down as per different screen sizes.

Understanding Page Width vs. Viewport

While we work on responsive web design for Warwickshire, we are aware of the fact that not all of the browsers understand page widths and viewports the same way. We know that viewport includes all that space within the browser window (this includes page width and scroll bars as well). Browsers like Chrome pick the page width for media queries, while others like Opera, IE and Firefox consider viewport as a whole. For an 800px wide screen with 20px vertical scroll bars, Chrome employs CSS media queries for 800px. For the same case, other browsers include it for 780px. This slight difference can cause some problems for websites which have lesser content on homepage than some other page.

Altering Key Elements of the Sites

We bring in some alterations in key elements of the websites like reducing the logo size in the header, change navigation elements, reductions in margin, changes in overall width of the sidebar, etc.

No Vertical or Horizontal Scrolling- We Think Out Of the Box!

At Willco Web Design, we present responsive web design in a very unique way. We can avoid vertical or horizontal scrolling and create amazing, circular and fluid websites which can be navigated by just waggling the mouse.

One of the most pleasant experiences you have while using a responsive website is that you don’t need to hassle around horizontal scrolling. So, when you visit a responsive website next time, remember to test out that you enjoy a great web browsing experience because of appropriate scrolling. And, if the site lacks that, it’s needless to say how you feel.
