Hack your Frontend with document.designMode

document.designMode is a cool feature.

Perhaps not a very well known feature, hence this heads-up ;)

By enabling it in console (document.designMode = 'on'), you can edit and experiment with a page content right from the browser.

No need to change code on IDE.
No refresh.
Just live, fresh mangling. yay!

Check it out:

Yeah, cool isn't it?

Can be very handy, especially when one needs to tweak the content (text/img) and see how it looks right upfront.

Have fun!
