[Hidden-tech] proofing a website

Another simple mobile device test if you use Google Chrome is to press
Ctrl+Shift+M (or Cmd+Shift+M on a Mac).  This will toggle the device
toolbar where you can select different phone/tablet device sizes to check
your site on them.  You can also click a button to rotate the orientation
of the device.  A sort of hidden feature is the banded gray bar under the
device selector - clicking on a band in that bar will automatically set the
width to the width shown when you hover over the band.

Note: this not the same as a test on the real device as you are still using
desktop Chrome but since most mobile devices use the same engine as Google
Chrome (WebKit) it's a good first line of testing.
