1. One Website for all devices
Traditionally web designers would serve a device specific version of the website to users by simply re-directing a mobile users to a device-specific site. But now responsive web design technique has solved this problem allowing web designers to create a single site that can be implemented across devices.
. Website designed with this technique automatically adapt to the devices that is accessing it without requiring customization of images or code.

Since only a single website need be created that adapts to multiple screen resolutions in mobiles, tablets, and PCs, a responsive web design approach results in saving unnecessary cost of creating and managing / maintaining multiple websites for each device.
3. Increases reach to tablets and mobile audiences
With the explosive growth of tablets and mobile phones, more and more people are accessing Internet from mobile device like tablets, phablets and smartphones. The demand for media-rich mobile internet and apps is burgeoning. By some estimates, some 40% Internet users now search and browse the net completely on mobile devices. Creating one single website that seamlessly adapts to all kinds of devices will certainly enabled such websites reach far more users than with a rigid website meant for desktop screen, or with different versions of websites for different devices, for that matter.
4. Increases sales and conversion ratio
Increased reach of the website offers potential of increased sales and conversion rates. Responsive web design delivers a consistent user experience across all screen sizes without requiring separate versions of the website, this would also have a positive impact on sales conversion rates.

With increasing number of users accessing Internet on the go on various mobile devices, offline browsing (without live internet access) is becoming increasingly important to web designers. HTML5, which is used in building responsive web design is equipped with offline browsing capabilities. Web designers and developers use application cache, to specify which files the browser can cache and use when the user is offline providing users full website experience even when not connected. User won’t even notice any difference between being offline and online.
