CSS Editing Improved - BrainDump

In response to user feedback, Google Chrome Developer Tools has seen some recent improvements in terms of some of its existing features, and some new ones as well. Chrome Developer Tools is partly developed via the WebKit open source project. It offers users a stable environment for optimizing and debugging web applications or websites that run in Google Chrome.

Besides the improvements in the area of network instrumentation, CSS editing has also been revamped to become more user-friendly. Property names and values now have their own separate fields. They previously shared a single field. To save time when typing property values, keyword suggestions will appear.

The problem of disappearing invalid properties has also been addressed. Chrome Developer Tools was fixed to give users the ability to view CSS properties not recognized by WebKit. 

The improvement comes from a change with the CSS sidebar that will now show the actual raw information that the browser receives from the server, instead of just showing the interpretation from the rendering engine. This improvement with the CSS sidebar is similar to the one implemented with the aforementioned network panel.

All of the new improvements in Chrome Developer Tools add to its existing feature set. The application is written in JavaScript and CSS, and gives users the ability to debug JavaScript, improve app speeds, improve web page appearance, and more.
