    Something to point out is that this doesn't also mean all fonts and browser quirks are emulated properly. This definitely helps you work quickly without having to keep a bunch of browsers open but don't count on it for accuracy.

      This. I used it to quickly prototype a relatively simple game recently and learned two things:

      1. There are still lots of things the Chrome emulator doesn't replicate. I ran into issues with typography sizing and relative element sizing (%, em, etc)
      2. You have to bear in mind that the Chrome emulator is running on a more powerful machine than a smartphone, and likely with a better internet connection.

      It's still a great tool though and a massive timesaver. Really nice addition to your mobile toolset. Wouldn't use it as an alternative just yet.
