is this website too big?

  • # April 18, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    I am designing a website on a 17″ computer and when I went to see what it was like on a small 13″ screen i realized just how big it looks and feels.

    is there an easy way to just shrink the website just a bit if its on a small screen?
    or do I have to resize all my elements which is annoying but not the worst thing I have ever done…

    It looks fine to me on in a smaller viewport although you lose a menu entry (‘other’) under 1084px wide but that’s because that menu seems to be outside of any 960px wrapper.

    a nice way to test your site on different viewports:

    I use a free app for Windows systems only called SIZER from

    It’s a quick and handy tool. It’s no phone/tablet emulator but for media queries it’s not bad…for free.

    I resize my browser window.

    Or adjust screen resolution.
