Emulate web apps on multiple platforms

If you have a set of web pages that you need to check on several different devices/platforms there's a great way to quickly switch between the platforms and run through the pages looking for glitches.

If you are using Chrome all you need to do is to open dev. tools (use Ctrl+Shift+I or right click and Inspect element), then click on Settings (gear sign in the bottom right corner), click on Overrides tab and there you are!

Now just select to override User agent and pick one of the drop-down options for a device/platform you want to emulate (iOS, Android, IE etc.) and you are ready to go! Nice and easy.
