A few neat little Safari developer tools

January 23, 2020 , I learned...

First off, there’s the keyboard shortcut to activate responsive mode: ^++R. I love the way devices are presented along the top of the screen.

Clicking each one changes the layout orientation, including split windows. 😮

Secondly, I noticed that Safari’s responsive mode can replicate other browsers and browser versions. I doubt that’s new, but my blonde brain finally noticed it.

Lastly, I saw Manuel’s little Safari-related pro-tip that there’s a tiny setting that forces the scroll bar to always be visible. What a great way to debug spacing issues during development without having to first interact with the page!
