Google Chrome provides a great tool which we can use to do a lot of useful functions on our blog as web designers. Thanks to luck and Mohammed Mustafa that gave me a brief on how to use google inspect tool. I tagged it as Google inspect tool, not because other browsers like Mozilla, UC doesn’t offer it, rather because i fell in love with Google Chrome.
Second series on my blog, first series
took us through a lot of coding and designing and i know many of my readers were wondering how i got to know all the Widget IDs, Width and layout of Ogbonge Blog.
Well i got it via Inspect tool and i have decided to publish a tutorial series that will take u through lot of cool stuffs which we can do with Inspect Tool.
As a blogger or web designer, Inspect Tool is the best thing that has ever happened to me. At first i found it confusing and useless but as i kept on exploring it i found out that it is one of the very free tools that separate pro bloggers from newbies.
One of the beauty of Inspect Tool, is that it gives you everything you need to create a professional, fast, neatly coded and 100% responsive blogger template. Aside from it being able to do all that, it serves as a live editor since it allows you to view every little work you do directly as you are doing it. If you change the background color of a widget on the inspect tool, it will show it to you.
