This is an interesting overview and recap of the pros and cons associated with media queries and discusses some alternative ways to overcome the cons. The offered solution is similar to the approach I’ve taken recently.
I’m a huge fan of Nathan Smith’s Adapt.js because it allows me to implement what I see as a medium between the benefits of the principles behind media queries and also be more aggressive with the overall payload I’m working with. Adapt.js doesn’t remove the responsive nature of the project though, unless you want it to. If that’s the case it does that too.
I’ll leave it to the article to explain what it does and Nathan’s article to explain the details of Adapt.js.
