Media Queries and .LESS

As I missed the all important lesson on media queries and .LESS I thought I would try to catch up. I’m struggling with the idea of a media query, apart from its functions, I don’t really understand why you would wish to use a media query. So I decided to do some more research.

This has helped me understand that while making a website responsive helps the user to view all the information, but media queries are useful in presenting more or less information depending on the browser size. I also like the idea of using media queries orientation function, I think this could be quite useful in my website design.
