Optimize your site for multiple screen resolutions with Screenfly

Multiple screen sizes with screenfly

The days where a website was primarily accessed by pc’s are long gone. Today a increasing amount of devices like tablets, mobile phones and  tv’s are used to browse the web.

The consequence of this development is a increased need to test the behaviour of you website in the different screen resolutions these devices uses.  Unfortunately it’s only very few webmasters that have access  to all these devices. You could naturally try to get your boss to buy all these nice devices for you ;-) .

As a plan B (if your boss isn’t that understanding) , you can use a online service like Screenfly to quick and dirty emulate your site’s behaviour in the different devices.
