Meh. Userstyles is much more useful.

This one is pretty much indispensible for me.

I think you missed the bit about sharing it with a link.

This is awesome.

I like this because I get sick of using plugins all the time for stuff like this. A web based service makes way more sense.

Oh yes. Brundlefly I kiss you.

Not really, it breaks the URL.

On the other hand it does make for an interesting way to share CSS ideas.

Here's my quick take on the MeFi homepage

br{display: none;}

ftw

Much more professional.

Nice, but not my favorite CSS toy. This is.

delmoi, that's actually rather nice.

If by professional you mean eye-bleedingly painful, I agree. Also, maybe eponyst-whatsit. I guess I'm just too used to terminals with white (and ansi colors) on black. Anything with too much of a pure white background just murders my peepers. Cranky *nix guy is cranky, ignore me.

Godspeed, see this for the reference.

Hrmm.. I can see the argument for clean (with white) as it seems less.. I dunno, fuck-aroundy for browsing at work? But in that case just strip out all the CSS and only show the .copy's and similar and you'd be good.

OTOH being "on the blue" is sort of a mefi-cultural identifier, so tossing it out the window would be a bit rash. Yeah stuff, probably should post on that thread.

As for this topic, this is pretty cool as a sort of crowd-sourced css-snob fest. Love it. It also reinforces that I'm glad I'm not a web dev, cuz I would suck balls at it.

Thanks for the post. This is potentially super-useful for me. I'll have to see if it works for the web-based service tracking system I have to use at work (for which my UI bug reports on layout-breaking problems go unheeded). Or the mobile-optimized metafilter frontpage, which I've been itching to tweak/fix since I got my iPhone.

Anyways, thanks!

Seconding approval for delmoi's take, it's kinda nifty. Not sure how great it'd be for everyday use yet. It'd probably be better if the boxes were slightly larger so fewer of them needed scrollbars.

I only read Metafilter for the links.

Finally, vaguely dickish CSS besserwissers everywhere have a tool for easily sharing their condescending "oh you spent two months on a redesign, how nice, here's a version that doesn't suck" layout modifications.

Only somewhat kidding.

No, really.
