Adobe outs public Beta of Shadow

Adobe releases a preview of Shadow, which allows the developers to remotely control its web pages on multiple devices at a time

Adobe has recently released a preview of a Shadow, a tool to allow developers to remotely control Web Pages showing its commitment to HTML 5. They will be able to control web pages in multiple devices as phones and tablets simultaneously.

A chrome plugin has been used in Shadow on the developer’s Windows or Mac OS X machine and also uses applications on iOS and Android phones and tablets. The devices are initially registered with the developer’s machine and subsequently their browsers can be remotely controlled by the computer. The pages visited on the desktop will also appear in tandem on the phones and tablets.

With this tool the developers will be able to test their pages across multiple mobile devices simultaneously. It also uses the convenience of desktop browsers for speedy navigation through sites. Most of the remote browsers make the same requests as they would if being used by hand.

Along with all this Shadow also goes beyond remote control as it provides access to a remote object inspector and JavaScript log. However, currently there is no remote JavaScript debugging. The software is currently available as a free Labs Beta, which is expected to be released finally later in the year.
