I'm rewriting one of my sites to be responsive.
I've always aimed for zero errors in my sites in W3C HTML and CSS validation.
I just noticed the W3C mobileOK Checker.
Should I be aiming for a good score on this for a responsive ecommerce site? Or is it really meant for mobile only sites?
Some of the criteria seem old fashioned in this era of faster mobile connections and higher data allowances. E.g. a critical criteria is page should be less than 20kb.
If I was to make the page less than 20kb it would be totally boring, especially on a larger screen. I have to have images as it is an ecommerce site.
I checked a few sites including my own and some that are considered "state of the art" responsive (google "skinny ties") get very low scores.
So, is it worth trying to get a high score for a responsive site?
Do you often use the checker?
