The mobile-first web

If there’s any single point to take away from Henri Bergius’ essay, it is this:

The web is its own platform, and as such it is foolish to try and mimic traditional desktop applications. It will never feel quite right whatever you do.

It is a lot better to accept this and fully embrace the unique advantages of the web platform.

I also really enjoyed his remarks regarding the workflow between developers and designers. In short, design for mobile first.
