You can't create a Photoshop comp for every possible screen your design will run on. So what tool do you use? How do you work with developers?
If you talk to your local, bearded web design guru he'll tell you the problem is solved if you design in the browser.
Easier said than done.
You are so much faster at creating designs in Photoshop or Sketch. When you sit down to write code AND design, it feels like you need two separate brains.
Is designing in the browser even possible for you?
When you're in Photoshop or sketch, you get the layout you want with a click-and-drag of the mouse. In the browser you need floats and position: absolute; margin-left: -9999px; and other yuckiness.
But have you heard of flexbox? Do you know how to create and use a grid?
The tools developers use to speed up programming can be used by designers to speed up prototyping in the browser — but you have to pick and choose only the pieces that are useful to you as a designer.

"You have no clue how much time you've saved me trying to figure this stuff out.” — Antonio Moton
I'm probably a lot like you. I make stuff for the web. I have a CS degree, but the last 11 years of my career have been a more potent teacher.
Recently, I wrote a book on web development called Sketching with CSS. I also run a training company for developers. I'm an author in Smashing Magazine and I've written some cool open source projects.
Today, I'm an entrepreneur. In the not so distant past I did the usual 9-5 thing doing web development for a couple of big companies.
I'd love to meet you on Twitter.
