Mobile-First: A New Approach in Web Design or the Increasingly Popular Trend

Author Coral media

Mobile-first is a concept for mobile-optimized web design. Put simply, it is a technique that provides a priority to work on the mobile version (MV) for the popular width of modern smartphone desktops – 360-375px at all stages of website development and then to inherit the architecture of the web pages for laptops and computers.

When it comes to adapting a regular website for smartphones, developers "hide" unnecessary issues or scale them down to fit a smaller screen. In the case of mobile-first, you don't need to hide anything, since the initial version is already laconic and primarily focused on the content and consumers' interests.
