Your website looks and performs just the way you want on your machine, but what about the rest of the world? Previously the only challenges web designers faced was making sure there weren't any issues between web browsers: what you had lined up perfectly in Netscape Navigator (remember that?) was a mess in Interent Explorer. Now with so many different types of mobile devices that can access the internet and more toys coming out every day, the challenge would be basically impossible without the idea of "responsive web design".
They're saying by 2014, internet usage through mobile devices will surpass desktop computer internet use, and sometimes it seems like it has already. There are more mobile devices (smartphones, Ipads, tablets, mini-tablets, etc) than desktop PCs now, and people are attached to them 24-7.
