Note: when using the Chrome mobile mode -- it can get locked into mobile 
mode if your site uses cookies to track device type or size.
When you exit mobile in the browser, if your screen is off, clear any 
cookies related to that site

otherwise it's a great way to get an idea of how well your site works on 
different devices.

If it's not been otherwise mentioned, make sure you use Google's web 
master's tools to check if your site is mobile friendly.
