SpanishTown.ca and Responsive Design

The blog here has been languishing for quite a while but it is not because we haven’t been busy.  In fact, we have been so busy that we had no extra time for the blog.  Over the next few posts we will be going over some of the changes and additions that we have made to SpanishTown.ca.

 

Responsive Design

This was and continues to be a real challenge.  We have redesigned almost all of our pages so that our visitors can have the best possible experience no matter what device or browser they are using.  After testing on different devices, screens sizes, and browsers we are mostly confident that the site should work whether you use a smartphone, tablet or PC running Chrome, Safari, IE, Firefox or Opera.   These browsers cover 94% of our visitors to SpanishTown.ca.

We hope that you enjoy the site on whatever device you choose to use.
