What is the VW?

A vw is a unit of measurement in CSS that stands for viewport width. It stands for viewport width. In plain English, 1vw is equal to 1% of your device screen's width. It's pretty nifty because it adjusts with the width of your screen - which is why we call it a responsive unit.

What is the default viewport width for the PX to VW converter?

The PX to VW converter's default viewport width is typically based on a standard full-screen device width, such as 1920 pixels for a desktop display. However, since the viewport width can vary depending on the user's device, the actual conversion from px to vw can change. The converter should account for this by allowing the user to specify their viewport width.

Is it better to use vw instead of pixels?

Well, there's no one-size-fits-all answer here. Using vw has its perks. Since vw units flex with your viewport's width, they're great for crafting designs that adapt beautifully to different screen sizes.

But hold up, pixels can still be your best bet in some situations. For example, if you need to maintain precise control over the size of an element. And remember, while vw is super useful, it can lead to teeny tiny or gigantically huge font sizes on small or large screens. So, be a little cautious while using it. It's usually smart to combine it with other CSS techniques for a smooth sailing experience across all device sizes.
