Can you tell me where to find mobile site simulator for desktop/laptop

Calling all Warriors!

I know I saw it on here before or somewhere. But, I'm looking for a mobile site simulator that will tell me what a mobile site looks like on a mobile phone.

I want to be able to view them on my computer rather than my phone,, so I don't burn up too much online time (would that be bandwith?,, I'm a money/marketing guy, not tech, or tech terms)

But, are simulators as accurate as a phone? I'd hate to tell someone their site don't work because the simulator was wrong.

Thanks,

Robert X

p.s. I know I could Google this but I always come here first.

      You could also install the Chrome browser and use the user agent selection to simulate Android or Iphone directly in the browser.

      This is far the best one you can find for desktop.

        Rob,

        I'm not sure if you noticed or not but it also lets you take screenshots right from within the program. A real time-saver.

          See what I mean about you Aussie's? I mean you just keep on giving.
          Thanks Will, no, I didn't even notice about the screenshot. I literally stay up late so I can see waht you guys have to say when you get up, (you know, the time difference thing). Can't wait to see what I learn next.

          I'm telling you newbs,, all you need to do is ask questions, listen, and take action,,, and there's no way you can fail! It's simple really,, you just gotta get over that whole "million dollars over night" BS

          Thanks again,

          Robert X

          p.s. Sorry to all for the double posts,, the forum was frozen for me last night.

    Mobilizer is awesome. Transmog.net is another source for online emulation.
    Also, the easiest extension I found for quickly telling whether a site is mobile or not by just visiting the page is user agent switcher for chrome. Just search that up and you'll find the link.

    The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "you know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done."
