Responsive web design is an approach towards website design in which a site is crafted in such a manner so that it provides an optimal viewing experience i.e. easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling across a wide range of devices from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones.

Some examples of responsive themes are  as follows
