See How Your Website Looks On Different Devices


You all must be familiar with the fact that it is extremely important to optimize your website or blog for different browsers. And as the number of mobile users who use their smartphone to surf the internet are increasing day by day chances are that in near future a large portion of users will browse your blog through mobile devices and tablets.

So how can you optimize your website for so many different devices?? And forget about optimizing how can you even find out how your website looks on these devices. Now for this specific task there is a site called screenfly that allows you to see how your site looks on a large number of devices ranging from smartphones to tablets and even Hd Tv's.

To get started just head on to this site, Screenfly. Enter your site's url and you are ready to go. At the left side you can choose different devices. These include:

  • Desktop - 10" netbook, 12" netbook, 19" desktop and others
  • Tablet - iPad, Smasung galaxy and others
  • Mobile - iPhone, Lg Optimus, Motorola Razr and many others
  • Television - 480p, 720p, 1080p tv

How does Screenfly Work?

Screenfly uses a proxy server to mimic devices while you view your website. If for some reason you are having trouble browsing your site, you can select the “no proxy server” checkbox before clicking on go.

Note that if you do not have a different version of your site for mobile devices, your site will look pretty similar in all these devices. Also if you want to find out how your website looks in different browsers then you can go to this site..
