Some websites now contain ‘responsive images’. These scale (or crop) depending upon your screen’s viewing area, so the image sizes remain appropriate whether you’re looking at the website on a mobile phone, or on a huge flat screen monitor.
This is an example of responsive text.
The amount of textual detail scales relative to your screen size.
The effect is achieved using simple HTML class names and CSS media queries which show or hide the content depending upon the current screen width.
