    The ugly truth about responsive design (and how to fix it)

    Critics have claimed responsive design site performance is slow. In a first-of-its-kind e-retail study, Internet Retailer and Keynote examined 12 retail responsive design sites and found that site load times on smartphones are not only slow - at 18 seconds, they're very slow.
