We have invited the two other persons to critically review the nominated website by using the chrome device simulator. The persons are my friends and another is my older brother. My friend is 26 years old and he is pursuing MBA. My brother is 30 years old and he is an accountant.

Now we ask to both for review the website by using the chrome device simulator.

Review of friend

To start the review about this website, first I emulate the website across the different sizes and resolutions given on the chrome device simulator. I get the website is responsive in all the screen sizes and resolution. The website layout also fit in the both the type of screen in landscape and portrait view. At the breakpoints of the website, I noticed that when the pages hit the 768 pixel breakpoint, it stops rendering correctly.

Review of brother

I started the website review by emulating the website in chrome device simulator by checking the website pages across the different screen size and screen resolution given in the chrome device simulator.

I found that all the pages of the website best fitted according to the different screen resolution and screen size. I also check the different pages of the website in portrait view and landscape view of the device, I found it is rotating well and displaying the content well in the both view. When I check the network configuration of the website in all the screen size, I got the network condition is very according to the screen sizes in device and browser. I also notice that the pixel density is changes according to the resolution of the screen and the real page loading time differ in different screen resolution.

I notice that the videos given in the website is not adjusting according to the screen sizes in different screen resolution. The resolution of video is not responsive for all the types of screen.

5) Assertions relating to RWD design principles

The website needs further improvements especially in its designing part. Although the website is very informative for the users but according to me, it is not interactive and attractive for the users who are visiting the website. The content used in the website is confined, simple, understandable and logical but this content is not arranged properly or we can say the content is not written in an attractive manner. A lot of work needs to be done on the designing part of the website. Firstly the header in the website is too long instead it should be short with lots of information into it. The content, menus or links in the header should be arranged in a proper manner so that it looks good to the user and user visits our website frequently.

The space which is left blank on the sides of the header must be used. The logo of the company should be shifted to the left side and the search option should be reduced in height and shifted towards the right corner. The address and contact number mentioned is not on the appropriate location. It is getting mashed up with the other information on the header. The height of each sub menu should be reduced and menus should be arranged properly. The slider should be shifted a little upwards. In the leading brands section, spaces are required between the logos used. The logos are getting mixed up with each other and are looking untidy. The font style should be similar in the website. Instead of putting the products in various rows, slider can be used to show products. The footer of the website needs improvement.

The footer of the website should be reduced in height as the lot of extra space is included at the bottom of the footer which is not looking good. Also the menu and submenu in the footer are not arranged systematically and is looking untidy. Various more implementation on this website needs to be done. The website is not up to the mark. The developer has worked a lot on this website and used a very good and informative content also the pictures used are interactive. But he lacks in the designing part. The developer needs to put his hard efforts in the designing of the website so that the website could match the top and best websites.

6)Provide recommendations on how the website should be improved

From last few years, various changes had evolved and are still evolving in responsive web design. In past years, the website was opened only on the laptops and computers. The websites which were developed contained the resolutions according to the laptops and computers only as the websites were not opened on any other devices. So the coding was done by keeping in mind the size of the screen of PCs. With the updates in technologies, we have got various devices and several new features in those devices. Now the same websites can be opened on various devices like mobiles, tablets, Mac book, Laptops, PCs, etc. The size of the screen of each device differs a lot. For this we need responsive web designs.

Q. What is a responsive web design?

As I have already mentioned a lot about responsive web design in the introduction part, responsive web design is very useful for the developers as a single code can work or implement on multiple devices. With the help of responsive web design, developers now need to write a single code for the website, and the website will change its resolutions or size according to the size or resolution of the screen on the device in which the website is opened. Even if you change the size of your browser in the same device, the website will adjust according to the changes made.

The main principles for the responsive web design are:

  • Fluid images
  • Fluid grids
  • Media queries

Let us learn the principles of responsive web design in brief.

Fluid images:

The idea behind this is that the image will adjust itself according to the limitations or the size of the fluid. To implement this, we simply need to write a CSS code in a single line.

Code:  img { max-width: 100%; }

This will instruct the browser that the image will remain large as its pixel value and takes care that the image on the webpage is not pixelated. If the image is opened in the window smaller than the image's size then the image will automatically shrink.

Fluid Grids:

Using the system of pixels was started in the print industry, where the size of newspaper and magazines were same but in the website, all the devices on which the website is opened have different size of screens. Hence here using fixed unit - pixel is not beneficial as we do not want the resolution of the website to be fixed, it should be variable according to the device. For this now we use percentage as a relative unit for website.

If you know the designing in pixels and faces problem in using percentage then you can easily do it by using this formula:

target / context = result

Example: You have a website having width = 960px. Now you want the website to get adjusted in the maximized browser having width = 1920px. Then according to the formulae, percentage value is :

  960 / 1960 = 50%

Media Queries:

If you have developed the website according to the resolution of the laptop and you want that she should adjust it according to the mobile resolution then it is difficult. As mobile phones contains the portrait that is their screen is larger vertically than horizontally. Here we need the media queries. From several years from now, the CSS technology has been available for developers in the browser which contains the media queries. Media queries have a functionality to check first and then let the CSS to apply. They first check the conditions or resolutions of the browser then apply the CSS on the website. Media query looks like this:

@media screen and (min-width: 600px)

Mobile first:

This is approach to design the responsive web design for the mobiles first and then move on the higher resolutions like tablet, PCs etc.

7) Comment on the tools used for reviewing and testing the website

Chrome device simulator

Simulator is a software program that allows your mobile to imitate the features of another computer or mobile software you want them to imitate by installing them to your computer or Mobile. It tests mobile and responsive web pages on your desktop. The main objective of the Chrome device simulator is to simulate the internal state of the objects as close as it possible. The testing team is used the Chrome device simulator to test the external behaviour of mobile such as; making transaction, calculating, etc.

The Chrome device simulator is developed in high level languages. It might be difficult in debugging. In other words, we can say that the Chrome device simulator is the partial re-implementation of the original software.

To test the resolution of the website pages, tester just have to choose the mobile screen resolution given there by clicking that and the active page will be open in the separate window in that resolution.

Main features:

  • works with local files too
  • Same scrollbars as in mobile devices
  • Ten predefined sizes of screen available
  • Use of mobile user agents

  • It is cost efficient and very helpful when the dead line is short to provide the text execution result and the tester doesn’t have the time to purchase the new mobile device for the testing.
  • It’s make the user to feel, close towards the real mobile device while testing.
  • The simulator is open source software which can be easily downloaded and used by anyone.
  • It is mostly used to test the web application. The users just have to paste the URL of the website in it to test the pages of the website.
  • Simulator provides the easy capturing of screenshot facility in Microsoft office.

Disadvantages

  • The Chrome device simulator is unable to simulate the issues related to battery.
  • It is unable to simulate the interrupts for incoming calls and messages.
  • If the real mobile device is in black or in sunlight, it cannot properly simulate the real colour display of the mobile devices
  • The simulator performance is less than the original device at a time.
  • It is mostly suitable for certain types of functional test executions.
  • The simulator also creates the misconception for users who would be using the same validation because the memory available in the simulator is tending to be far more than the real devices.
