Hi 'm a Uni student and i'm doing a research project on Responsive Web Design and the question i'm asking is

"Responsive Web Design: a stop gap technique or the future of building web sites? "

I intend on researching whether RWD will becoming an "industry standard" way of design or will it be developed and pave the way for a different method which hasn't been discovered?

I would just like to hear various opinions and beliefs of anyone who's work it influences.

Thanks in advance
