Style Side Panel
Inside the Style side panel you can see the CSS styles, that are currently assigned to the selected node inside the HTML Panel. It also offers you similar possibilities of CSS manipulation like the CSS Panel. The difference between them is organizational. The Style Side Panel is a live view of the styles assigned to the selected node inside the HTML Panel (which can lie in different files) while the CSS Panel shows all styles of a CSS containing file.
The Style side panel also shows styles set inside the
style attribute of an element inside an
element.style "rule", inherited styles from other elements and styles coming from the user agent. Overwritten styles will be striked out.
Furthermore the Style Side Panel allows inline-editing of the selectors, properties and values. It also gives you the cascading info, meaning styles, that are overwritten by other style definitions will be shown lined-through. Additionally styles inherited by other elements are listed.
