First of all, I would like to thank all of you who downloaded and tested the app in the last weeks. Your feedback has been very helpful in shaping the future of slashB and ultimately in giving you a useful tool. I really appreciate it!
In the last few weeks, I released three new versions of slashB: 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3. These releases bring a good number of new features, all giving you a better experience in developing and testing websites. These updates are the result of your precious help.
So, what’s new in slashB?
When interacting with one viewport, slashB will mirror all your actions on the others. Click, focus, scroll, forms input: everything is in sync among devices!
Re-designed devices toolbar
Devices have a re-designed toolbar that shows the device name and a menu with actions.
Some of the actions include:
- Reloading a device’s page, with the option to reload while ignoring the cache (force-reload)
- Taking a page screenshot
- Clearing cache, cookies and local storage for individual devices
- Opening the Dev Tools
- Rotating a device
- Editing a device’s properties
You can now interact with slashB using your keyboard. Most of the keyboard shortcuts you would use on any other browser are available in slashB as well. To view all the available shortcuts, open the Help > Keyboard Shortcuts menu.
It is now possible to zoom the devices and make them bigger or smaller with a single click. Useful if you are working on a small screen or want to have a full overview of all the devices.
More default size presets
There is now a total of 60 default size presets to choose from. It is now easier to test your websites on the most common device sizes, including phones, tablets and desktop screens.
You can also filter the presets to quickly find the one you are looking for, by searching them by name, width, or height.
And much more!
Take a look at the release notes to see everything that has changed since the first release of slashB. There are many more improvements for you to discover.
Make sure to download slashB and take advantage of the 30-day free trial to give it a try.
I’ve created slashB to simplify the development-testing cycle while creating responsive websites. With this application, I want to make your life easier in your everyday work. So I’m asking you, dear readers:
- What is your N.1 problem when testing or developing websites?
- What are your top two features that you feel I absolutely NEED to add to slashB?
