The Importance of Responsive Images

The Importance of Responsive ImagesMat Marquis wrote a post called "Why Responsive Images Matter" for A List Apart. Marquis explains that not all people are browsing on a fast computer with high-speed internet. He states that he made the mistake of building websites within the context of how he browses and assuming that everyone else was viewing online content the same way. 

"I’m not the only one who made this mistake, either: not long ago, a full 72 percent of responsive websites were sending the same amount of data to mobile and desktop users, while only about six percent of responsive sites were taking significant steps in tailoring assets to mobile devices. Unfortunately, that last statistic doesn’t really track with reality: seventy one percent of mobile users expect websites to load almost as fast, or faster, than everywhere else."
