So – this looks interesting … a plugin for google Chrome browser for emulating mobile environments. Whenever I work on mobile websites perhaps the biggest challenge is testing across devices – and being able to use the desktop for geo-location services and the like. Ripple seems to overcome that difficulty:
Ripple is a multi-platform mobile environment emulator that runs in a web browser and is custom-tailored to HTML5 mobile application testing. Ripple aims to reduce the challenges being faced by mobile developers caused by today’s platform fragmentation in the marketplace.
Ripple is built as a Chrome extension, running as part of the Chrome browser and takes advantage of our back-end services to perform some of the more complex operations.
They have some demo apps set up (for which you’ll need the extension installed and to be running Chrome) … looks good.
