I guess in next 3-5 years We will not be tweaking css for Internet Explorers and the websites viewed from mobiles and tablets would be 70+%. Am confused i should keep on getting strong in ordinary responsive coding(PHP) or should i learn Android or something(mobile specific).Share your views tech folks

They are not competitors
by Sovereign Forum moderator / June 4, 2013 11:40 PM PDT

Web and native applications are not competitors; each of them has strengths and weaknesses depending on what you're looking to accomplish. In terms of what's going to happen in 3-5 years, that's as good as anyone's guess. Stick with what you like and what you're interested in, whether that's Web, mobile or both, and feed today's demand, not what may or may not happen in the future. When the time comes, you can adapt.

Code it proper

Hello Rajaa67jar!

My opinion is to stay with what the w3c people say. As long as you develop with CSS that passes validation and you can test the site on different platforms (iPhone, galaxy, etc) your web designs should be compatible on any browser for a long time. Don't focus on a specific device, rather, focus on a broad range of compatibility. So in a nutshell, stick with the standard coding with CSS, XHTML, and JavaScript for your responsive web design.

You can choose CSS to make your website responsive. CSS also provides many tricks and tutorials to make responsive templates.
