Would anybody know of a way of saving changes I made in Inspect Element, locally and not server side?

There is some script/plugins for big websites like Facebook that sometimes include a feature where you can change and save the CSS coding you've edited for your own personal viewing. Why isn't there something like this for editing both HTML/CSS and saving for only personal viewing?

You can use the greasemonkey or tampermonkey extensions to fF and chrome to change the html of a site when it loads. –  Paul Oct 11 '13 at 4:33
