Responsive Design Meta Tag
< Meta Name = "Viewport"
The Viewport meta tag for Responsive Web Design is the area of a web page in which the content is visible to the user. It varies with the variation in screen size of the devices on which the website is visible.
When a web page is not made responsive for smaller viewports it looks bad on a smaller screen. By using the viewport meta tag you can control the layout for web pages on mobile browsers.
- Always add the viewport tag in the HEAD section of your site.
- This tag is supported by most popular mobile browsers and used by thousands of web sites.
- Don’t use the responsive design meta tag if your website isn’t specifically designed to be responsive.

Meta Name Viewport
The Meta tag is the Responsive Design Meta tag, which we call “Viewport Meta Element”. By using the viewport meta tag we can control layout for web pages on mobile browsers.
The Viewport metatag could look like this:
<meta name="viewport" content="width=240,user-scalable=no" />
This is a simplified version of the Viewport tag that sets the browser viewport width to a maximum of 240 pixels, ensuring that the user cannot scale the content.
<meta name="viewport" content="width=240, height=320, user-scalable=yes, initial-scale=2.5, maximum-scale=5.0, minimum-scale=1.0" />
The content values of the Viewport META tag are separated by commas and contain a list of guidelines and their values.
|Viewport-Metatag||Value in this example||Description|
|Logical width of the viewport, in pixels. The special device-width value indicates that the viewport width should be the screen width of the device.|
|Logical height of the viewport, in pixels. The special device-width value indicates that the viewport height should be the screen width of the device.|
|user-scalable||user-scalable=no||Indicates whether the user can zoom in and out of the viewport, scaling the display of a web page. Possible values are yes of no.|
|initial-scale||initial-scale=2.0||Sets the first scaling or zoom out factor (or multiplier) and can be used to view a web page. A value of 1.0 shows an unscaled web document. A value of 1.0 shows an unscaled web document.|
|maximum-scale||maximum-scale=2.5||Sets a maximum limit for the user to scale and zoom a webpage. Values are numeric and can range from 0.25 to 10.0.|
