Here’s a holiday gift for those of you who know what the phrase, “above the fold” means –
Mashable’s Ben Parr recently wrote a piece about several Google Tools, including one new one that will be supremely useful to web designers and developers.
We already know that Google is obsessed with their own speed and efficiency, but the search giant is also trying to make everybody else faster on the web as well. Google Site Performance, for example, provides tips from Google on how to speed up your website, while Speed Tracer increases the efficiency of web apps by tracking performance.
The company is once again tackling the realm of website efficiency with a new tool that doesn’t track site speed or app performance, but the size of the browser window. The app, Google Browser Size, aims to help website owners solve one of the most fundamental problems in web design: How should I lay out and design my website for higher engagement and conversions?
Want to see Google Browser Size in action? Check below to see how we did when re-designing the uTest home page.
This is a very helpful tool (as well as quick, simple and free). Try it out on your own site today, and I’d highly recommend it for anyone who’s launching or re-launching a site.
