A new "Mobile-Ready" Home Page

Something long overdue, and two years after our major re-design, we have updated our front page to a new look. The front page is a fully 'Responsive' Design, that will render both in a Desktop mode or in a mobile phone mode.  The 2015 look was not mobile friendly in the first place, and over the past four years, the trend in Internet usage has shifted in favour of hand-held devices. So much that today google values "Mobile - Readiness" more in its search rankings.  So what used to look like this:


..will now look like this - thanks to the advances in CSS and HTML5, which made it just a wee bit easier to design a new framework from scratch.


The same page will automatically render as below in a mobile hand held device. 



The framework is based on the "beez" template used in the Joomla CMS that runs in our subsites. The recent work that went into making the IAF subsite fully responsive provided the impetus to work on the main page as well. If you havent noticed, check the Indian Air Force sub-site which is fully mobile ready across all the different components - the content, the Database and the Galleries!
