What do you like best?

What I like best about Chrome Mobile DevTools is that there is so much to choose from. Quite literally you can do almost everything you can from a mobile device as you can from a computer. It has been called a "much needed shot in the arm" for web development and I have to agree. I have created and improved on my personal business site without difficulty using this tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about Chrome Mobile DevTools is that it does require a good internet connection and I live/work in the middle of nowhere sometimes and that can make things difficult. Since this is mobile though, as soon as I get to a location where I can connect, problem solved and all changes can take place. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend this product to anyone who is considering Chrome Mobile DevTools. It is easy to use once you get it figured out (which takes no time) and it is so very convenient. There really is no downside to being able to create or make adjustments when you only have a mobile device for your site. Developing and maintaining sites used to be difficult, but not anymore, Chrome has nailed it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems that I am solving with Chrome Mobile DevTools is making adjustments to my website whenever and wherever I need to in order to reflect any changes I need to make at a moment's notice from my phone. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love Chrome mobile because it's easy to use. You can launch a fresh new page and can use the Incognito mode too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Well sometimes things launch in Safari so I use that one. I don't know how to make things launch in Chrome mobile as my default so I'm not sure about where that setting is. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend this to others who are looking for an alternative to Safari or other browsers on their mobile device. It seems like there is more support and other programs that typically work well with Chrome so you might as well have it on your mobile device and your laptop and desktop computers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's on my mobile so it's another browser to use if I'm busy with Safari. Also, it jus seems like so many programs today say that they are more compatible with Chrome so you might as well have it at your fingertips. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I am able to see how long the load time is for my page. This would be very useful for looking if there are any speed issues from the load time. Then I am able to look at the load time of pages by emulating conditions of the network and device which was used. The layout is very clear and has helped me have a great outlook on this as speed was not as efficient as it could be. The tool was exactly what I needed and really glad that I got to know about dev tools by google chrome.

In order to analyse these loading times and speed issues, the accessibility was very easy. For instance, there is the Network Conditions tool where I can click on a Customisation menu. As I am not the best at using dev tools, this interface has made it extremely easy and adds to the simplicity and accessibility factor of using this.

Also, the tools are being updated continuously, such as being able to manipulate pseudo classes and look at them directly in elements context. It is also very easy to switch between frames on the page, as well as the printing of scripts and CSS files look very nice and clean.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is quite hard to saw what I don't dislike but the instructions for other functions can be be quite complicated compared to what I normally use it for. I would suggest using it for identifying speed issues of loading times of pages which is very simple. The other functions I wouldn't really recommend as it takes a learning curve to really use it to enhance your experience.

If I were to compare this to Firebug, I would think that an AJAX call in the console, firebug shows you the result. In chrome the network tab is opened and there are instances where the call is not found in the abundance of files, making Firebug's method a lot better in this case. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is very useful and simple to use, a simple google search can give you all the instructions you need without contacting support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to solve business problems like speed issues with my page, which can be done simply.

I can also personalise it as I want according to my preferences. For instance it could be appearance, enable shortcuts and more.

Also, in chrome it is possible to modify my code directly and it shows local modifications clearly. There is support for source maps and it is possible to edit local storage from within Dev tools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We're a creative shop, constantly idea-testing and prototype-building. ChromeMobile is the only way to go for either as it's as agile as our develop process needs to be.

Chrome Mobile allows me to access my google docs on the go! it also allows me to access internet job boards that are linked with the G Suite. I love how easy it is to log in and have everything i need already logged in and at my fingertips. Allows easy access to work/personal contacts. and calendars. It has helped me so much on my personal website. i am able to make changes and edits to my website/work website easier and faster. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In rebuttal to my above statement where i love the ease of being already logged in, that does have it's downfalls. Having access to information at my finger tips is a double edge sword. Convenience is great! but at what expense? Sometimes open access to all of my G suite can pose some security concerns. However, the touch ID has helped add that extra level of verification to Chrome mobile. I would like to be able to edit multiple websites at once. I do have to make edits one at a time. I would like the platform to expand its user guides and help pages. Since i am a beginner with web development i have many questions that come up. Also, assisting to edit my companies website. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to access Google docs while on a conference call on my cell phone. Being on the go and having all necessary information in order to answer client/customer concerns. linking my personal gmail to my work calendars etc.. syncing my contacts. I am also assisting my company with edits to our corporate website along with edits to my personal sites. I feel like it gives me the ability to develop content easier than through a 3rd party web developing website. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Chrome Mobile DevTools is the best tool for testing the website view straight from the Chrome browser itself. It simplifies everything like adjusting the size if the content and checking the responsiveness of my website within seconds.

I can easily evaluate the performance of the website by using its features such as Network emulator and remote debugging of a device. Also one of the best features is the screencast which allows taking control of the mobile site via laptop or desktop. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Although it has the best features to make efficient browser testing still it lacks in certain areas such as sometimes it is not able to display the connected devices in a correct manner and gives wrong information.

Also, it doesn’t have support for GPU emulation and lacks the support for Safari browser making it only useful for Chrome browser. It is sometimes very difficult to determine the product as it acts glitch. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is the best tool to get mobile view of your website for different resolutions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using it for making responsive designs which are flexible for further changes and modifications and are supported by a majority of the browsers and doesn’t get impacted by the device’s resolutions. It has really helped me to overcome the problem of different screen resolution over various devices and makes it much easier now to test it on multiple devices.

Also, it is very useful as I can now share the screen with the clients giving them the overall look of the website performed under multiple devices having different resolutions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
