Show IH: CSS Scan - Instantly check or copy computed CSS of any element on the internet


Hey all, I'd like to share with you the project I've been working on full-time for almost a year.

The problem
While working with web development, I've always found myself crushing my head to understand why the CSS was not working, looking through thousands of CSS rules on the browsers’ Dev Tools, scrolling and scrolling...

And while surfing the web, sometimes I just wanted to get 1 thing from a framework (specifically Bootstrap’s alert) or am curious about what is the amazing box-shadow, font, border-radius, etc of an element I just saw.

The solution
A browser extension that when activated on a page, enables you to instantly visualize the CSS of any element you hover over and let you copy its entire rules with a single click.

CSS Scan 1.0 was launched 9 months ago, and since then I’ve made a lot of new features, bug fixes, and improvements.

I’m excited to share with you and genuinely interested in hearing what you think about it.

Do any of you have any ideas or feedback?
I'm all ears

    Minor suggestion. If possible have a small animation gif on the main page to show how it works. Most visitors won't click on the video.

    Btw, other day I found a clever domain name which perfectly suits for your project. Let me know if you are curious, (it's around $10 on namecheap right now).

      Hey, prakis! The video is on autostart... Or you mean for mobile? That's a good idea.

      Oh yes I'd love to know which domain is this!

        Messaged domain name on Twitter. Check it.

    What a great tool. What really sells this is the ability to try it out right in the page, so much fun! Good job and good luck! I'd say your product looks fantastic already, time to focus on marketing :)

      Thank you so much, Felix! Glad you like the demo, and it sure helps sales a lot!
      Definitely, time to focus on marketing. Do you have any pieces of advice or ideas on how should I market it?

        Oh, what a pity. I'm at Ho Chi Minh. I'll try to make some trips out there. However, not at this moment.
