A topic about the online rulers (aka virtual rulers)
Maybe you know what the rulers
are, but I'll give you some short definitions:
A ruler, sometimes called a rule or line gauge, is a straightedge with equally spaced markings along its length.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruler Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License
A straight strip or cylinder of plastic, wood, metal, or other rigid material, typically marked at regular intervals and used to draw straight lines or measure distances.https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/ruler
Now you probably know what I mean. To be quite sure, I'll show you the pronunciation(-s) of the word 'ruler': [ˈru:lə(r)], [ˈrulɚ] plus a photograph of different kinds of rulers: By No machine-readable author provided.

Concrete online rulers (onscreen rulers, virtual rulers)
The good news -- they already exist! There are different online rulers

, virtual rulers

...) and here I'd like to represent some of them:1. This website measures the size of your screen and creates the image of a ruler that is the actual size: iRuler.net.2. Ruler with centimeters and inches. Configurable for different screens: freeonlineruler.com.3. Website shows ruler in real size based on your monitor size: PreciseRuler.com.
