Thankfully, there is a growing number of browser-based tools available that emulate the screen sizes of a wide variety of devices. This article takes a look at the 15 best responsive web design testing tools available on the web. Feel free to dash through the list and happy testing!


Responsive Web Design Testing Tool

This is a great testing tool by Matt Kersley. With the tool you can test how responsive your website is, in various screen sizes simultaneously in a single screen. Just enter your website's URL into the address bar at the top of this page (not your browser's address bar) and click enter.

Colimnial

Columnal is a Pulp+Pixels project. It is based on work from the fantastic people of cssgrid.net and 960.gs. Columnal makes responsive prototyping a little easier. It is 1140px wide, but since it is fluid, will respond to the width of most browsers.




resizeMyBrowser

Screenfly

Screenfly is a tool by Quirktool. With screenfly, you can test any webpage from variety of devices: Phone, Tablet, Desktop, or TV. You can also enter a custom screensize, rotate the screen, and generate a URL to share with others for testing.




Responsive.is

Opera Mobile Emulator

Developing for mobile phones and tablets becomes a breeze. The emulator is super simple to install and lets you do serious mobile development from your desktop.




Am I Responsive?

Quoting the developer, "This is not a tool for testing, it is really important that you do that on real devices. This instead is a tool for quick screenshots (for me) and to visually allow people to ‘get’ what you mean in client meetings." Instant view of your site as it would display on four different iOS devices.




ResponsivePx

ResponsivePx is an awesome tool for testing your responsive website design. It features some an awesome function that let you identify the breakpoints and also test how the CSS media queries are working in your site.

Then use that information in your media queries to create a responsive design.




ScreenQueries
