If you are serious about providing a fast and well-formatted multi-device experience for your site visitors think server-side solutions.
The average size of a web page in 2012 is now 1249 KB, up 40% year-over-year, according to httparchive.org. Assuming this trend continues, average page sizes in 2014 will be over 2 MB-four times larger than average page sizes in 2010. Unfortunately the method of mobile web design, commonly called responsive design, is not adequately positioned to reverse this trend; in reality, it is likely to significantly add to average web page sizes.
In contrast, server-side solutions leverage the benefits of detecting mobile device types like phones and tablets in order to deliver a fast and dependable mobile-optimized web experience.
