Considering building your own website?

I have done some research and posted my findings on how much a "Do it yourself website" can really cost you. I have nothing against DIY websites, but use my knowledge in this sector to highlight some easily overlooked information. Follow the link to my site below to read more

A question I commonly get asked is "how do I know if my website is smart phone friendly?"

Avoiding the obvious answer, there are a few quick and simple was to test your website on multiple devices. While there is no substitute for using the actual smart phone, we have software which comes close to emulating what the user of said phones will view without having to buy 100's of different phones to test on ourselves.

http://getmobilizer.com/ - No longer completely free. I've used this for a long time, they have recently improved their product and as such now only offer a 7 day trial or purchase.

http://www.google.com/chrome/ - Chrome Web browser (free). Slightly hidden in the developer tools area is a feature to view websites as different devices. It even goes into spoofing the user agent to allow mobile device emulation. While seems great for mobile devices, for me it fails to be accurate on tablet emulation though as often using wrong agent for tablets.

https://www.mozilla.org/ - Firefox web browser (free), I use this for testing responsive design. While it does not provide user agent spoofing it does work better for testing responsive design in my opinion over chrome. To use within the browser menu->developer->responsive design view or ctrl+shift+M.
