Web geeks: Responsive is all of the fuss right now – something I’ve been tinkering with for over a year now. But what about a Mobile only concept?

If in the next 5 years the majority of computer users will be surfing our Web sites with a phone or a touch device not much larger than 10 inches, wouldn’t we be better suited with a design that was mobile centric with a few add-ons for in the case of viewing with a desktop?

I’m tinkering with such a layout now while trying to figure out the right formula. Minimalism seems to be the key to it – that and very large sized fonts to help compensate for a small screen.

This idea for me was inspired by the Zeldman, whom which has a mobile only design for his Web site, www.zeldman.com

Just a few geek thoughts. </endgeek>
