RWD Bookmarklet

If you’re not a fan of browser extensions, why not try a bookmarklet instead? This is just a link written in JavaScript that runs from your booksmarks toolbar. RWD Bookmarklet is a free tool and super easy to install. Just go to the website and look for the dark blue button.

Drag that link into your bookmarks toolbar and then visit any website you want to check. It’ll add a dynamic black bar to the top of the window with custom settings for landscape/portrait on touchscreen devices. Keep in mind that this is all written in JavaScript and runs within the browser’s rendering engine. It’s not a fully-fledged extension or webapp, so it may feel a little clunky. But it’s great for simplicity’s sake and runs perfectly on all Operating systems from Linux to Unix and Microsoft.
