is a Flexible Stretched Dynamic Expandable "Liquid" Layout
"Liquid Design" in the
web design industry means that your web page layout width
expands and contracts (stretches) when the browser window
is minimized or maximized. The alternative to a Liquid webpage
is a fixed width webpage which uses fixed tables with a
specified pixel width.

Width (100% Flexible
to fill any monitor size)
look at your screen now you may perceive it as a fixed medium,
at standard resolution, which never changes and everyone
else on the web is seeing webpages the same way you are,
however this isn't always the case. For web designers the
monitor screen does not have fixed width or height because
these variables change, at times in unpredictable ways.
People might have different monitors screen sizes, different
screen resolutions, larger or smaller text view settings,
larger or smaller browser buttons, additional toolbars to
customize there browsers, different browsers, a Favorites
page on the left instead of on top, maybe they have added
more toolbars to browser and so on. As you can now imagine,
the width and height of the screen is different from user
to user. Because of this some website owners prefer a Liquid
design over a fixed width design to take advantage of every
visitors viewing experience by having a liquid web layout
expand and adapt itself to the available space of each visitor
commonly used names for Liquid Web Design are:

is what you want, factors such as budget, type of content,
structure, amount of information must be taken in consideration.
Liquid design may be more costly than Fixed width website
design because it may take more time and programming to develop
