Browser ~ Google Chrome–Device Mode & Mobile Emulation

All the more reason to luv this browser…

Fullscreen capture 3192016 63104 AM Nexus 5XThis is a screen capture of the emulator in use.

With it, I have modified, as needed, my Cascading Style Sheet [CSS] so that this blog, with the Twenty Sixteen Theme, displays as I want it to.

All the devices listed, except the Nexus 5X, does so. I have asked for assistance with it. The screen with the trike is the 5X emulator.

Note: Strangely, the code for the 5X now fires and the blog displays properly. So, all devices emulated display as I want. See my comment.

I learned yesterday that this developer tool is a part of this browser.


I’ve used the Inspect Element feature for years as a tool to write CSS code. Doing so is impossible without such a tool.

Now, I can do even more using Chrome’s device mode:

This is a happy find! I am sated using Google Chrome Browser.

  1. Please disregard this support request. For reasons unknown to me my desired media query is now firing.

    @media screen and (max-width: 731px) and (min-width: 411px) and (orientation:landscape) {
    .widget {
    /* Widget placement for NEXUS 5X in landscape mode, 03/19 *STILL WORKING* */
    margin-left: 0 !important;
    width: 100% !important;
    margin-bottom: 10px;

    It would be good to know why the misfiring before and now okay? I’ll take it though. I tried the query above many, many times.

    According to the Google Chrome Emulator, the listed 20 devices work as desired in landscape and portrait modes.
