Apply a Custom Theme to Your Chrome Inspector

Ever want to change the look of your Google Chrome Web Inspector? I personally love being able to customize the “theme” or “brush” of my favorite IDE and my Web Inspector is no different.

#elements-content .child-editing {
background-color: white !important;
color: black !important;
display: block;
