For the people that use a mobile device or a computer, they are not worried about why this happens. As long as they can get the information they want from whatever computer device they want, they are happy.

It is up to the web site owner to make sure that the visitors to their web site are able to get what they want. Most people desire a responsive web site. They want a web site that is easy to navigate and that is easy to understand. It does not matter to the user of a web site, whether they are accessing it from their mobile device or from their computer at home, if it does not work the way they want, they will go somewhere else.
