How To Test a Website On Different Screen Sizes, Platforms and Browsers

The first part of this tutorial explains how to test a website at the screen size of different devices like iPhone, iPad, Tablets, Android phones etc.

Different mobile devices have different resolutions for their screen – for example, Apple iPad has 768 x 1024 or 1024 x 768px screen size in different mode and Google Nexus One has 480 x 800 screen pixel size. Now, if you want to see your website on these screen sizes, here is a website to resize any browser to some preset value at single click.

resizeMyBrowser is a web service to resize the window size of browser to specified value. Once you will open the website, you can see 15 preset values for devices like iPhone 3G/3GS, iPad, Google Nexus One, iPhone 4G, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Normal Netbooks and Laptops etc. Just click on those links to get the resized browser for those pixel sizes.




The second part – if you want to see your website how it looks on different browsers, screen sizes, Flash, JavaScript and Color Depth, Browsershots is the solution.
