A research by Temple University Fox School of Business professor suggests (or is rather a QED) that consumers’ response to personalized greetings ranged from very negative to, at best, neutral. Overall, 95 percent of customers responded negatively when an email ad greeted them by name.
First, there’s the technical argument. Responsive design is fundamentally built on CSS3 media queries, and the proposition is that you can send down the exact same HTML and only vary the CSS that is applied. For simple websites that don’t have complex pages, this is an approach that can work. However, for many content websites that send down a lot of very heavy HTML pages, sending the same payload down to a mobile device is a bad idea because of how slow the page load becomes. This fundamentally defeats the purpose of the mobile experience: to help the user quickly get to whatever it is that they’re trying to get to.
Responsive design relies on browser support for it to work properly. From the data we have on the MobStac network, iPhone and Android devices add up to less than 50% of worldwide traffic: in most parts of the world outside the US, Blackberry, Nokia, and other devices that ship with a wide variety of browsers, it is simply not an option to rely on a pure responsive approach that makes use of CSS3 media queries.
The other problem at a design level is that with a responsive approach, you have to take a “least common denominator” approach. You can’t independently vary the features and experience of the mobile version because it is always very tightly coupled to the PC version. Such tight coupling in design makes this approach very limiting. The mobile Internet is not just about modifying experiences to suit screen sizes – it’s about a fundamentally different consumer interaction with the Web.
