Tip for Resizing Your Browser Window

May 30, 2007

Testing your web sites at lower resolution is always a good idea (no the rest of the world doesn't view web sites at 1680x1050 like web developers sometimes do). Here's a quick tip that will let you resize your browser window to a specific size.

Just type the following in to your address bar and hit enter:

javascript:window.resizeTo(1024,768);

It will resize your window to the size specified. I find it handy to have a bookmarklet for 800x600 and 1024x768. You can drag those two links to your bookmark bar to create bookmarklets.

Or you could install the Web Developer Toolbar firefox extension that comes with a built in customizable browser size changer, along with many other features. http://chrispederick.com/work/web-developer/
Damn Pete - very cool idea. You mean the rest of the world doesn't have 22-24" widescreens?
Or you could just use the viewport resize options of the Web Developer toolbar FF extension.
Great solution for those who cannot have the developer FF extension. Remember some work places have the machines so locked-down, the thought of installing FF on any of the boxes would make the IT guys knees weak. Great tip, thanks!
Good point jyoseph. :)
I'm glad you guys found it handy... Your Welcome!
