Bank of America Website is not Responsive

Bank of America Website is not Responsive
If an end user with older screen resolutions try to visit Bank of America website, he will observe a scroll bar in the browser.

Figure 1. Scrollbar in the webpage since content didn’t adjust as per window size.
As per Rumsey, Roth, and Wallace (2013), Responsive web design (RWD) is a way of coding web pages so that they look good on any screen. This concept is not limited to a mobile device, but to all possible screen resolution based on any technology and hardware. As per Breeding (2015), access to Library Technology Guides in February 2015 was 63% desktop, 27% mobile, and 10% tablet and he supports Google decision to decrease page rank of websites with poor mobile usability. Bank of America may have answered Google by giving altogether different content location to mobile users, but desktop users / end users on devices with weird resolution are still suffering.
