Is there a way to tell how many pixels wide your viewport is at?

I was wondering, as we are best to plan the media query breakpoints around the style of the page, not just based on common device screen sizes, wouldn't it be useful to be able to see a dynamic gauge of what pixel width my viewport is at as i slide it wider and narrower?

This is probably quite a noob question thats been covered somewhere that i missed, but it would be super helpful to me to know at what pixel width i'm viewing the page in my browser to plan the breakpoints (if that's even the right word)😂

Hope someone can help!
