5 Uses of Absolute Positioning

If you’re an experienced web designer, you may wonder “How does it work for responsive design?” It’s a well-known fact that absolutely positioning breaks a responsive design — if you use absolute positioning on an item and don’t adjust it for various screen sizes, you’ll end up with a situation where your item goes off the canvas. A wrongly positioned object can either not display on some screens (usually, on mobile), or it can increase the total canvas area (meaning the page will overflow the viewport, and the visitor will need to scroll through tons of whitespace).
