Hey, fellow front-end developers, designers and QAs!

We are very, very excited to share with you PixelParallel – the free pixel perfect tool that lets you easily compare an HTML page with its design and do it with pixel perfect accuracy. Born from the idea to help us code faster and work more efficiently, PixelParallel free Chrome extension is now available for everyone to use.

Get a sneak peek of how PixelParallel works:

Why did we build PixelParallel?

The idea of building PixelParallel arose naturally from the necessity we felt of a tool that would save us time and accelerate our coding process. We wanted to build a handy, light, and functional solution to easily compare our HTML markup with the design when coding. PixelParallel is not the first free pixel perfect tool out there but it is the first of its kind with so many functionalities, all working towards the goal of making our and your life easier.

How is PixelParallel different from other similar tools?

We wanted to build a really effective solution that would make the working process of every front-end developer and QA much smoother. With dozens of designs we code daily, we did our best to enhance this free pixel perfect tool with all the functionalities needed for a quick and flawless comparison process between the HTML markup and the design.

Here are the features included:

  • Bootstrap grids with customizable width, number of columns, gutter and opacity;
  • Vertical lines with customizable space between;
  • Draggable rulers (Photoshop-like) + Reset option;
  • Inversion (Color difference);
  • Separate overlays for each web page;
  • Overlay scaling;
  • Customizable overlay opacity;
  • Saving overlays between sessions;
  • All image sizes supported;
  • Lock supported;
  • Hide / Show image;
  • Shortcuts + customizable keyboard combos;
  • Works with local files;
  • Intuitive UI: clean and simple; draggable; minimizable;
  • Ad free.

Why are we releasing it to everyone for free?

Contributing to community may be optional for many but for us, giving back is a necessary choice. It means that we all join forces and work together for the development of the web. Receiving requires giving first and this is a philosophy that we abide by every day. We are often quite appreciative ourselves for other people’s inventions that we use in our daily workflow. So, we felt it’s our duty to make this a two-way process. What goes around, comes around.

You are very welcome to install and use PixelParallel from Chrome web store. It’s ad free!

We use this free pixel perfect tool every day here at htmlBurger and we hope you find it useful, too. We encourage you to share your thoughts and suggestions with us. Meanwhile, want to learn more about our community-oriented work in the labs?
