How to remove some of the text or image content from HTML page on small screen devices while using media queries?, But which is better way to do..

Applying simple css property removes the content from layout, which we are using for long time to remove content on HTML page.

We can use either one of the below in media queries css..

display: none;


visibility: hidden;


Which property is wise to use? to get rid of the content in css media queries.

CSS Property visibility: hidden;
