These days, everyone is consuming content differently. My mom has a netbook, I have a laptop, my friend has a 27″ iMac, my girlfriend and I have smartphones and her mom has an iPad.

Since your content is now being viewed on more devices and browsers than ever before, you have to design it with that in mind. Websites that adapt to things like screen sizes and operating systems are known as responsive designs, and this list of 10 sites shows off the future of the flexible Web.

The growing connectivity in our society leads to some amazing results, keeping information flowing at an astounding rate, while bringing people closer together. But there some downsides to this new era of consumption, one of them being the way websites are currently designed.
