When using a CSS framework it often doesn't matter what devices people use. These frameworks come with their own set of CSS breakpoints with components that work well with those breakpoints.

Instead of configuring Polypane to show devices, you can configure it to show the breakpoints supported by the frameworks.

Polypane comes with workspace presets for Bootstrap v4, Materialize, Bulma and Tailwind CSS. Adding other ones is as easy as downloading and importing a workspace file.

Breakpoints for each CSS Framework

If you're using Polypane, You can create panes from the exact breakpoints and get the complete overview in a single browser, something that no other browser can do. Which breakpoints are used by each CSS framework? Find the lists below.
