Flexer (Chrome Extension)

Flexer is a Chrome extension I made to provide efficient mobile/responsive web testing for web developers. Quickly navigate through options using quick commands to free yourself from clicking through an array of options. Flexer accurately emulates the most popular mobile devices on the market.

Flexer allows you to instantly resize the viewport/window without the need to touch your mouse. You get a mobile browser at the touch of a button.

About

Front-end development is both a career and a hobby. It is an opportunity to create something innovative. The endless possibilities provide the motivation and determination to continue growing as a developer.

I reside in Naugatuck, CT. Outside of web development, I am an avid Indiana Hoosiers basketball fan. I stay active through running, hiking and playing basketball.

I am currently looking for new opportunities to grow professionally and personally. I enjoy contributing to projects that are clear in their goals and enhance the lives of its users.
