Blisk is a Chromium-based browser optimised for web developers.
At first glance the program looks much like any other browser, but when you enter a URL, it's displayed in both regular Chromium and a portable device view (iPhone by default).
The desktop and portable views are displayed side-by-side, and fully synchronised. Scroll the desktop or click and drag on your portable and the other view moves to match. Click a link on one view and both update to display the new page.
A small selection of alternative devices - iPhones, iPads, Samsung this, LG that - are listed in a sidebar. Click one of these to see how that hardware renders your target site.
Blisk can also monitor specified files and folders for changes. If you edit and save your code while using the program, Blisk refreshes tabs automatically to show the results.
Other goodies including screenshots, video capture, analytics, detection and reports on site errors can make it worthwhile checking how a website looks in every device.
Note that the free version of Blisk is limited. You can upgrade to Blisk Premium with support for more devices (such as an iPhone 8 Plus), screenshot and screen recording, cloud storage and much more for $9.99/monthly.
