I use the Inspector (F12) in Google Chrome a lot. I was wondering if there was a way for it to actually save the changes that I make, as opposed to copying them into the CSS file manually for later use.

Does anybody know of a way?


You can save your CSS changes from Chrome Dev Tools. Look here Google I/O 2011: Chrome Dev Tools Reloaded. Also, check out this presentation from Ilya Grigorik Wait, Chrome Dev Tools could do THAT?. Chrome's Developer Tools has a lot of good stuff hidden away.

  • Thanks, I didn't know you could that. I will give it a go. I would love to develop a built in FTP server that saves directly though! – Chud37 May 18 '16 at 8:49


I looked into this a while back and unfortunately the answer is no. The inspect element utility is only intended for developers to test minor tweaks to their code. You will need some other program to actually change your code.

  • I take that back. @Ian Atkin has the correct answer. – Stoney Dec 6 '12 at 17:21
