Google Launches Rendering Tool to Show Googlebot's View of a Page

A few days ago, we had notified our audience that Google is busy creating a tool that will allow the webmasters to check the problems associated with JavaScript and CSS. Finally, Google has launched this new tool. You can find this tool in the "Crawl" section under "Fetch as Google"

Why This New "Fetch and Render" Tool?

This new tools will give us an idea as to how Googlebot actually parses the contents of the website. Sometimes certain elements on a webpage is accidently blocked by robots.txt and in that case, this tool might actually be able to notify the webmasters about the possible issues and this will allow the webmasters to take appropriate steps in order to fix those.
