Responsive Websites

As most people are aware, responsive websites are where the one website adjusts itself to cater for the device currently viewing it.  Just like in the mid-90s where we would use javascript to detect the browser height and width and apply an appropriate layout to suit.

So if this was all done to the same quality as modern day, a previous 20 years earlier, why is responsive design a recent concept?

Well, like most technologies, fashion trends, music tastes and so forth, it is always about revamping the old.

But if e-commerce websites, responsive websites, web applications and ajax calls were all happening in 1994, then why do we care now?

I guess it takes 20 years for the majority to catch up!

P.S. jQuery is still no better than JavaScript!
