Everyone should be interested in responsive or at least understand the importance of responsive; for this reason here are 15 sites that will inspire you.
Time magazine will always have boat load of content on its pages even with it being mainly text responsive can be an issue.

Their site is quite sleek but nothing is removes as the site scale, its all slid off screen or turned into a slider. Which makes sense because When you come to marvel your usually looking for something new and want to get a full experience regardless of your current device resolution.
Starbucks…It’s Starbucks and unless you live under a rock I’m sure you know of them. From the start their site is made to be responsive, all the content has its own horizontal section leaving a lot of room for manipulation and scaling possibilities.
