Review: Quickly change the style and look of Web sites using Quickstyle for Mac

Change the appearance of Web sites by creating and editing CSS rules with Quickstyle for Mac.

Quickstyle for Mac helps Web designers and others who want to change the CSS files for Web sites without additional steps. Even though the extension is rather easy to use, users do need to understand CSS to use it effectively.

The program installs easily as an extension to the Safari Web browser. A small icon to the left of the URL bar shows up. Pressing this button activates the extension, which shows it is running with a temporary drop-down window. Moving the cursor around the screen highlights the different style sheet areas of the Web page that are currently loaded. Clicking on the page brings up an additional window with CSS information. The class information is in the window's left side, and the user can add additional declarations and changes on the right side for that particular class. Quickstyle for Mac offers little guidance for those with no CSS knowledge, which makes it hard for less experienced users to operate. For those with some knowledge, the program does allow changes to be made, which update and display properly.

As a Safari extension to view potential CSS changes in Web sites, Quickstyle for Mac operates well and would definitely be useful for Web designers who want to see how certain modifications impact the viewing window in close to real time.
