Summary

If you're on a Mac using Chrome and you want to view a web page at the same resolution as a smart phone (320px), this is the extension for you!

Chrome users on a Mac are unable to shrink the browser window below 400 pixels. This is a constraint on the chromed browser, but not for pop up windows. This extension simply opens the current tab in a pop up. Eight lines of code, no more, no less.
