Google WMT Fetch and Render tool displays Side by Side comparisons of User vs Bot Views

From SEL:

An update to Google WMT's Fetch and Render Tool now shows side by side comparisons of how the page would display to a user through a browser and how that same page appears to a search engine spider. Previously, the tool displayed JUST how it appears to a spider and webmasters would have to toggle back and forth in browser tabs to spot key differences in user vs bot views - so a neat little enhancement.

Also, WMT is now featuring a "Blocked Resources" report that shows what types of CSS, JS and image resources are currently being blocked from the spiders and on which pages. Google's been reminding webmasters not to block these types of resources, but now they're actively supporting them with reporting features like this. Cool!
