This was inspired by, and based on @lensco ‘s excellent Simple Responsive Design Test Page . It lets you view any webpage in multiple screen sizes, simulating the viewport of different devices.

Since people are obviously targeting different device screen sizes with their projects, the form below now lets you generate a custom bookmarklet that displays only those device sizes you’re interested in.

Luke Wroblewski, author of Mobile First , mentioned this style of layout in his roundup of mobile layout patterns. He and Jason Weaver then worked to create a batch of layouts, which they published to demonstrate how layouts like this could work on the Web. We were so impressed that we wanted to make that style of layout available for Foundation users, and the four layouts below are a few different examples of off-canvas layouts created specifically for Foundation.

Also, it suitably fixes on the smartphone and computer tablet screen.
