Default Built In Mobile Website Simulator (Google Chrome)

We all know several options to simulate the look and feel of mobile WebPages from your PC, but did you know this is already built in to Google Chrome?

Try this option, it's already built into Google Chrome and you not only get a few mobile options but also desktop browser options along with ipad and 'other' options as well, so its a good tool to refer to, not just for mobile simulation...

Step #1: Whilst using Google Chrome right click on the page you want to view via mobile simulator and click on the 'inspect element' option shown in this screen shot:




Step #2: Then click on the 'square' displayed in bottom left hand corner to undock the screen as shown in this screen shot:




Step #3: Then click on the 'tool' icon displayed in bottom right hand corner to display the options you need to see as shown in this screen shot:




Step #4: Then click on the 'user agent' tab at the top to view the browser options as shown in this screen shot. You not only get a few mobile options but also desktop browser options along with ipad and 'other' options as well,so its a good tool to refer to, not just for mobile simulation:

Not to try and hijack the thread or anything, but if anyone wants an extension for Google Chrome that does this, it's called user agent switcher for Chrome.

Here's the link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...jiklpkjnoahfmg

I've used it and it works like a charm.

Thanks for the tip,but I just tried it and it just shows the regular desktop site. Perhaps it needs some setting changes?

I just tried it again, works fine on my end. Just make sure you activate the plugin and then at the top right, right next to the URL bar click and select whether you want it to emulate either an iphone, ipad, whatever.

That's a shame, I was about to buy your simulator via the link in your signature, then realised you actually prefer a competitors version.

Cool tip, IC! I didn't realize that about Chrome.

While we're on the subject, it is worth noting that Safari has an iPhone/iPad simulator as well (First go to Preferences > Advanced. Check 'Show develop menu in menu bar', then close. Then click the 'page' icon in the top right part of the browser > Develop > User Agent > Safari iOS).

No shame here, my simulator is for online websites, and mobile marketers, mobilizer is for offline work.
It's not my competitor and even suggest you to get it.

Thanks for sharing. I remember having read this somewhere else.
Here it goes:
How to Change Your Browser’s User Agent Without Installing Any Extensions - How-To Geek

Easiest with Google Chrome. Almost impossible in Opera, although Opera is my fav browser

Internet_Corporation Thanks for sharing. Yes it's already built in in Chrome. Firebug also is a nice tool for inspecting site elements in Firefox.

Friendly advice, useful tips...
