how you can change the style of the page without changing CSS files?


Tags: html,css,html5,browser,web

Problem :

How would you go about changing the appearance of a website say when demonstrating a website to a client without going directly into the css files and editing it.

For the purpose of an interactive styling session when as a customer we need little tweaks to the site as its in discussion.



Solution :

I don't see a better way than using the Web Inspector or Chrome DevTools

Web Inspector

The Web Inspector gives you quick and easy access to the richest set of development tools ever included in a browser. From viewing the structure of a page to debugging JavaScript to optimizing performance, the Web Inspector presents its tools in a clean window designed to make developing web applications more efficient. To activate it, choose Show Web Inspector from the Develop menu.
