+Steve Baker Exactly, sometimes the full version has information the mobile version doesn't. Sometimes I just prefer the way is laid out, whatever the case I should be in command

OpenSTF (https://openstf.github.io/) could change how we do multi-device testing. Try it out! (it's free)

It's a tool that lets you remotely control multiple devices from a browser in real-time, including full support for open/sync URLs on all devices, taking high-res screenshots (yay!), running shell commands, remote debugging, reverse port forwarding and a LOT more. It'll even write your code for you. Okay, maybe not quite that..but still! It's powerful. I've been tracking the project for a year now and am super excited it's finally ready and open-source. Having tried out many of the mainstream cross-device tools today (everything from GhostLab to BrowserSync), this really is the swiss-army knife many of us have been waiting for. Because of the way it's been written, you can also use it with existing tools, so plugging it into BrowserSync is feasible.

I met with Simo Kinnunen and Günther Brunner of CyberAgent, the developers of OpenSTF in Tokyo this week and had a chance to talk about the project. Their tool allows you to do cross-device keyboard, mouse and multi-touch (!!) interaction (very useful for mobile webapp testing), manage a complete inventory of your devices with visual representations of them all (makes it feel like a REAL device lab) and supports everything back to Android 2.3 (it of course supports Android M too). OpenSTF also works on mobile meaning you can control from an iPhone or iPod touch and screencast (check out the screenshots).

You can use OpenSTF with both Chrome DevTools and Android Studio. It also works fine with Firefox OS and Android Wear. OpenSTF doesn't currently fully support iOS, but the architecture behind it should work with any OS. There may be a way to get it working through something like iOS WebKit Debug Proxy but that's for another day. On the performance front, Simo and Gunther are using HTML canvas for rendering the realtime view of devices (surprisingly very very smooth). I saw no drop in frames when testing it. They may also look at WebGL rendering to see if this can get even better. There's way too much this tool does to cover in this post, but I'm digging it so far.

You can watch a recording of the OpenSTF talk from Chrome Tech Talks in Tokyo this week over at https://youtu.be/VUmA1vCaOA0?t=9369 if you're interested in some demos.

Give it a spin and let me know what you think :)

I'm planning on getting OpenSTF setup for our team at Google London sometime soon.

Was lucky to visit Gonpachi (the restaurant from Kill Bill) during my first evening in Tokyo this year. Great food and the staff were super friendly.

JSCS 2.0 is out! ES6/Babel code can now be style checked. 31 new rules including some ES6-only ones have been added. Excited to see this ship!

https://github.com/jscs-dev/node-jscs/releases/tag/v2.0.0

Btw, in the below sample, the ES5 code I'm showing is technically valid, but I've set my style guide to use some ES6-only rules. This allows me to enforce when features like arrow functions or template strings should be used instead of the older way of approaching these problems.

Really great read on how Sebastien and the team redesigned Chrome for Android.
 
My article "Redesigning Chrome for Android Part.2" is now available after two months of writing. In this 30 minutes read, I go over phone and tablet layout, grid usage, specs, asset production and motion design featuring the awesome work of +Manuel Clément. You can read it here: https://goo.gl/YxqOQg

Additionally, I created an appendix site featuring high resolution motion videos of our prototypes along with an excerpt of their specs, if you want to see Manuel's work in all its pixel glory: http://goo.gl/1t3z9Y

Tokyo's Gundam Robot is awesome. If like me you have the mind of a 10 year old, the 1/1 scale, 18m tall robot will not disappoint if visiting the city :)

I recently threw out the apps of #tagesschau and #spiegel and use their mobile web sites now. One of the advantages is that I can open links in new tabs, so going back to the previous page is a lot faster because no re-load or re-rendering is done.

Introduction
Whoa. What are you doing on my profile page? Stalker! ; )

I'm an engineering working with the Chrome and Polymer teams at Google focusing on creating tools to help empower developers to build compelling web apps more easily. My current focus is Polymer - a sugaring library for composable web-apps based on Web Components.

In my spare time, I enjoy contributing free talks, articles and open source projects to the development community.

I'm the author of two books - "Learning JavaScript Design Patterns" and "Developing Backbone.js Applications", have contributed chapters to several Smashing books and have also created/contributed to projects such as TodoMVC, Yeoman and Web Starter Kit.

For the latest on my takes on whats going on in the world of web development, feel free to check out my blog at addyosmani.com.

After having spent so much on other barristers, with little results, I was amazed at how Paul Richmond (of Richmond Canter Immigration Barristers) handled our immigration case with such care, making the process as painless as possible. As other reviewers have mentioned, his reputation simply excels. Trying to immigrate means a mountain of paperwork and several personal details. Mr. Richmond gave us step by step instructions through the immigration procedure, and whenever we had questions, he was always quick to respond with great detail. Thoroughly going through all of our documents, Mr. Richmond made sure that everything was in order, so that the process went as smoothly as possible. If anyone I knew was looking for an Immigration Barrister, I would definitely recommend Paul Richmond. Mr. Richmond is fair, efficient, and very professional. We will certainly be recommended this firm to our colleagues and friends.
