Vercel offers new

Vercel, which provides a front-end stack for web developers, says it wants to transform developer workflows like Figma and Google Docs transformed their respective tools.

Until now, getting website feedback required users to shoot down the page and then put it into Slack or a feedback document. The company has officially launched a collaboration tool called Comments on Preview Deployments. The Vercel menu inserts a JavaScript file into the web page during the preview.
