Edit web pages with­out code Vis­ual In­spec­tor (­ual431) 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.
