It's just HTML

Nowadays, the internet is full of beautiful websites, and it's easy to forget there's something every site shares. At its core, every website is just HTML.

Inspired by the maker movement, I challenged myself to build a simple product related to this idea in a short period of time. While initially aiming for a few hours, I managed to ship it in less than one!

The resulting product is a chrome extension that toggles all the styling a website, so you can see the root HTML components, tables, icons, etc

If you want to try it out, you can install the extension from the Google Webstore. And, even if you don't, remember that it's just HTML :)

It's interesting that you store controls for comments as though everyone wrote the comment and then hide them.

I had to try clicking delete 😜
Don't worry it 404'd 😉

Alternatively, just use the:

View -> Page Style -> No Style

menu on Firefox :)

I'm sure Chrome has or used to have this - can't be sure though as I don't use Chrome much
