The World Wide Web is a collection of millions of sites comprising of billions of pages together. The site and vice versa characterize these pages. The website thus requires the pages to be operated in a manner which works smoothly. A useful website page, therefore, requires the work to be done smoothly. The faster the page is, the better it is for user experience. UI/UX is based on the same phenomena. It requires the page to be loaded with an automatic set of requirements and should be fast enough. Web pages and mobile pages are different. They operate at two different speeds and are hence customized according to the needs of the device. In this blog, we will discuss the difference between AMP and Responsive Websites

What are Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMPs)?

 Accelerated Mobile Pages (or AMPs) are tools used by Google for fast and smooth coverage of pages in the device. A web page usually has three components that are used to run it properly in a much systematic and sequential manner. The first part is its components. Every web page requires a web component needed to make it organized. Each element has its own defined task that is necessary to make it possible for the web page to function correctly. More importantly, it makes the web page organized. The second component is the language used for the back end of the web page. A backend is always required in a website since backend organizes and runs the site. The backend is the backbone of a web page. Back-end development is websites is usually built on the javascript programming language. It is used for resource loading.

The third component is the cache. Cache in a database is the memory which is closest to the CPU. The cache is used to serve and validate pages. AMP also has these three parts. The first is the HTML mark-up which is used for web components. The second is javascript built for backend used for resource loading. The final section is the cache.

What is a Responsive Website Design?

Different Responsive Designs

Website Design is a holistic technique crafted out by a web designer. A web developer has a lot of components included in it. UI/UX is essential for website design. Website design is majorly characterized into two parts front-end and backend. Front-end development is about designing the website from the front. It is the first thing that the user sees as soon as he or she watches the website. The first thing that the user sees is the front-end of the site, and it is the only thing that is visible to the user. It is the thing which when the user sees and make a decision based on it. The backend is always hidden from the user, and it is an only developer zone. Back end is the reason for the website. It makes the site possible to operate because of backend.

Responsive website design is this component combined by the best practises required for the user. These best practices are customized for the user according to his or her needs. Responsive Website Design means to design the website according to the requirements.

Now when we know what are the two types of websites, it would be easier to understand the difference between AMP and responsive websites..
