Web designers have to put a lot more thought into how they use the screen space on mobile devices and this if often a challenge.

I think one of the advantages of responsive design is that it allows the designer to tailor the way the information is presented to better suit the device. For instance, a mobile user walking down the street or standing on a crowded bus is likely to use the site differently than someone sitting comfortably by their desktop.

To continue the example of the movie theater manager, the web tracking might show that mobile users are more likely than desktop users to view movie times over movie reviews. Responsive design allows the manager to present the information accordingly.

The most elegant, laconic and fast loading layout is already defined and taken by Google.

For instance, what would u, as a movie theater manager(?) plant into 4″ screen real estate? Deeply discounted popcorn&soda ad, new release title (which one?), search field for a movie titles, or what? Address/location, phone number, stupid tweet icon to start needles and pointless blurbs about some “out of blue” shows after watching that Grand BS with surround sound?
