Verify, standardize, and correct the Big 4 + more– name, email, phone and global addresses – try our Data Quality APIs now at Melissa Developer Portal!

If you want to see what your web page will look like on a mobile device and also do debugging during development on your desktop, here is a very useful resource for you.

Google Chrome allows you to emulate different mobile devices, screen resolutions, user agents and things like touch screen, geolocation and the accelerometer.

To enable Mobile Emulation on Google Chrome, open the Developer Tools, go to Settings and enable "Show 'Emulation' view in the console drawer".

 

Then, press 'Esc' to bring up the Developer Tools console drawer and finally select the Emulation tab. You'll find four sections: Device, Screen, User Agent and Sensors.

A quick test to understand this powerful feature can be done by simply navigating to www.google.com, select a device (i.e. Google Nexus 5) and then click Emulate. You'll be able to see that Google Chrome will show you the mobile optimized version of the Google website.

 
To go back to the original settings, just hit Reset and you'll see the regular Google Chrome rendering of the web page.
Have fun playing with the other features!
