Browser stack is a great tool to check the responsiveness of your website – and it’s one of our favorites here at Spectrum Net Designs! It allows you to toggle through tons of various devices to actually see what your website page will look like on any specific device. Browser stack does require you to set up a free account with them in order to utilize their mobile responsive testing – but it’s super simple and easy, just input the URL that you want to analyze and let Browser Stack do the rest.
Within Your Website Editor
If you use a simple drag and drop editor for your website pages such as Elementor (used with WordPress) then there is a simple way to check your mobile responsiveness. In the bottom left hand corner, you can adjust your view between desktop, tablet, and mobile. These views allow you to make element adjustments in specific views of your web page. For example – if you view your page in mobile view and decide that you’d like your text center aligned in mobile but left aligned in desktop, you can easily make that change. If you’re just looking to check your mobile responsiveness, then those views is also a great way to see your pages individually. Check into whatever website provider you use to see what options there are for checking your website’s responsiveness.
