What is Media Queries?

Media Queries is a W3C Candidate Recommendation—a widely reviewed document which is ready for implementation by browser vendors.

 

It’s an extension of media dependent stylesheets tailored for different media types (i.e. screen and print) found in CSS2.

 

In its essence a media query consists of a media type and an expression to check for certain conditions of a particular media feature. The most commonly used media feature is width.

 

By restricting CSS rules to a certain width of the device displaying a web page, one can tailor the page’s representation to devices (i.e. smartphones, tablets, netbooks, and desktops) with varying screen resolution.
