Shrinking the browser is not a way of determining how it will look in other size screens. It will doubtlessly break things because your browser is set to meet the resolution of your monitor. There is no plague of site visitors running amuck shrinking screens that I've heard about. So this is a non-starter.
Each browser picks up the settings for the monitor from the computer's settings. Thus if the computer is a small handheld, or a 32" monitor, your site should look consistent in all of them, which explains why I am seeing it perfectly. Unless you're anticipating a flood of visitors with a penchant for resizing browsers, I don't think you have a thing to worry about.
I should point out that this issue has been discussed before. I tested websites on multiple platforms, different browsers, different computers and different themes and they all break when shrunk down to their breaking point. This is not unique to Framework, DMS, PageLines or WordPress. It happens on sites built in Joomla, Drupal, or with custom systems. But as I asked others, why on earth would anyone want to do that to their screen? I'm reminded of a story my Dad told me of a man who went to the doctor complaining of pain when he raised his right arm over his head, twisting his wrist and stood on his left foot. The doctor said..."Well... just don't do that!"Go to the full post
