Blisk release

Get Blisk release with new features: New system and browser toolbars, new device list, device info, favorite devices, improved screenshots, bugfixes

System and browser toolbars

The new system and browser toolbars provide the native look and feel. Emulations with toolbars provide much more accurate results compared to previous versions of Blisk. Since version 6, phones and tablets have the system bar and browser toolbar with the address bar. The new emulations help to understand whether web content fits the real viewport or not.

Device toolbars are not clickable, Blisk address bar continues to navigate both device and desktop contents.

New device list

Blisk device list is now easier to use. The devices separate into three groups: phones, tablets, desktops + laptops. Phones and tablets locate inside two columns (was a single column). So, you will need to scroll less to reach the needed device.

Since current version, Blisk refreshes the page once you change devices. This gives 100% accurate results for device user agent, CSS @MEDIA queries, device-specific JavaScript or CSS etc.

Device info

Since version 6, Blisk shows information about the selected device: screen diagonal, screen resolution, pixels per inch, user agent (OS and browser), viewport size.

Favorite devices

Since current version, you can create the list of your favorite Blisk devices. Clicking the star button star_border adds the selected device to Favorites. Clicking the filled star button star removes the selected device from Favorites.

Improved screenshots

The screenshots App was updated. The quality of screenshots was improved. Since version, Blisk takes screenshots in a higher resolution with less compression.
