introducing device detection

Accurate and detailed device information

Device Detection is a service used by thousands of websites as part of both Responsive Web Design (RWD) and dedicated mobile site developments to speed up page load times and adapt content or functionality to the visitor’s device, addressing the performance challenges often associated with RWD.

By identifying all the information relating to the visitor’s device in an instant, Device Detection can ensure only the right images, code and functionality are used, significantly reducing web site loading time for the visitor. Using the server to identify device characteristics, the website’s content, features and UI elements, can be adapted as part of a highly targeted user experience.
