Essential for website quality assurance and front-end development

Our desks used to be full of devices – iphone, android phone, ipad, macbook and windows laptop. Refreshing all the screens to see if the client's website looked great at different viewpoints took time. Probably 40% of the build time is QA and testing. Polypane solves this problem by letting you view multiple viewports and set guides/rulers to see if everything lines up as you scroll.

PROS

The passion of the creator and constant improvement. We mostly use this for testing website responsive viewport sizes side-by-side, but there is so much more here.

CONS

The refresh icon was on the right side of the address bar (a hang over of previous browser UI), but this changed last year. The expereince is seamless coming from using F12 in Chrome.

Reasons for switching to Polypane

Abandonware. With browsers changing all the time it's vital to invest in software that gets updated.

Cool Browser for Devs

It's pretty good to be honest, very sleek appearance, extensive configuration, really great assets for any web developer. Better than LambdaTest in my opinion.

PROS

Speed, Polypane is really fast, handles tabs efficiently and better than some traditional apps. I started using it for the multiple panes feature and I love it so much

CONS

This is a browser for devs, I don't think other users will pay to use it, so maybe if they want other users they should review the pricing.

Thought on polypane

Polypane is really good and i love the appearance and it functionalities.

PROS

Polypane is featured packed, and the deviation from traditional browsers. I loke it speed and multiple pane pictures. It has a brilliant staff management's to manage memory.

CONS

Due to the massive features and deviations from traditional browsers, it takes a while to know how polypane works.

Polypane review by UI/UX Designer

PROS

I liked that i could check the website across different screens at once without issues. This sped up my developer review tasks significantly

CONS

Other browsers are usually free, while i can't find extension for the feature i like yet, it may be available eventually. For that i think $9/month is a bit too high

A must-have for web developers

Handling is simple. It is not translated into English (that would be great) but it is so simple that you won't get lost in its possibilities. Really handy for checking that everything is OK on as many screen sizes as you want.

PROS

If you are a web developer like me, you will know that checking our work on different screen sizes is tedious. Polypane comes to our rescue to make this task easier.

CONS

The only complaint is the price. For small computers like mine its price can be excessive (it is at the level of big products like Adobe Photoshop).
