Top Tips of the Fortnight
Edit web pages without code Visual Inspector ( bit.ly/visual431) is a new Chrome extension that lets you inspect and edit web pages quickly within the browser without launching the Devtools console or indeed writing any code. It doesn’t replace the standard developer tools, but the interface makes previewing design changes such as position, colour, opacity, fonts and typography much easier than digging through lines of code. You can change text just by clicking the appropriate section and typing. Once you’re happy with your tweaks, you can export a PNG of the new design to share it. In future, the plugin promises to let you export CSS from your changes.
Check if your site is mobilefriendly It’s now easier than ever to test whether your website is mobilefriendly thanks to a tool built directly into Google. Type mobile friendly into the search engine, enter your website’s URL and click Run Test. Google tells you whether your site is mobile-friendly and if not, why it isn’t. With more than half of all web searches now being performed on phones, it’s vital to check that your site works perfectly on smaller screens.
