Google Chrome (and now also Firefox 4) have the useless little feature of allowing the user to resize any <TEXTAREA> on a page.
I’ve found the perfect use case for it:
1. Go to a page in your website that contains a <TEXTAREA>, like my Delver profile page:
2. Drag the corner of the <TEXTAREA> until reaching a particularly obnoxious appearance:
3. Now make a screenshot and send an email to your favorite QA person.
This is the part where you should really get creative. Here’s my suggested format:
OMG crazy UI bug in profile page – ON PROD!!
Hi [QA person name],
Check this out (found on my profile page in PROD).
I can’t *believe* we missed this and let it reach production this way. Please handle ASAP. Bug should be assigned as “critical”!
[Your name here]
You should also CC the QA team manager on this.
