I love chrome and I just wanted to let you know that when a user resizes the browser window, it actually reduces the overall size of the page. This is great news for anyone who is on a mobile device and is having trouble viewing the page.
This is why people hate mobile devices when it comes to browsing the web. If you can’t get to the page on a small screen, or it’s taking too much of your precious screen real estate, then you’re going to have a hard time reading it. Chrome uses the same technique to give your browser a nice round aspect ratio for mobile users.
Chrome has not yet introduced this feature in its browser but its a feature that’s coming soon.
Its nice to be able to view a webpage on a small screen, but the problem comes if you cant change the aspect ratio because the browser isn’t displaying it in the first place. In that case, youre stuck with a webpage that only looks right on your screen. What that means is that even if you have the best resolution for your screen, it wont look good on a phone.
Theres a solution to this problem, which is called a “sneak mode”. A “sneak mode” is a technique called “scale-down” which allows you to resize a website so it will look great on any screen size, with the only caveat being that the new dimensions are smaller than the original dimensions. Chrome has already implemented a sneaky mode in its browser, but it needs more work to ensure its actually useful.
Chrome has a sneaky mode.
Chrome’s sneaky mode is a feature that it calls’scale-down’. This is a new feature that Google is rolling out to its users. You can already use this mode in Safari, and it’s pretty handy for keeping websites looking great across all devices. Chrome has implemented a sneaky mode in its browser, but it needs more work to ensure its actually useful.
Chrome is one of the most popular browsers, so it makes sense that it would release a new sneaky mode, but how do you tell when a sneaky mode is actually useful? Well, we don’t know yet, but we can at least tell you that it’s not useful if you’re using it in a web page that you can’t see on your computer.
Its not a sneaky mode if youre using it in a web page you can see. Because Chrome’s sneaky mode doesn’t work on Safari so you can’t see the page on your computer. Chrome’s ‘new’ mode is actually a way to fix some bug that Safari does have. If you’re using Chrome on an iPhone or Android device, you can use the Safari feature to toggle the ‘new’ mode on.
