Shifty: A Chrome Extension to Edit Any Webpage From Within the Browser

When Kishore and I iterate over product designs, I often feel the need for a tool that will allow me to propose changes to a HTML mockup by simply clicking and dragging DOM elements from within the browser, instead of taking a screen shot of the page and editing the image.

Thus was born Shifty - a Chrome extension to move DOM elements or edit text on any webpage, from within the browser. My workflow is now as easy as turning the extension on, moving elements around and editing text and finally taking a screenshot to capture my changes.

You should give the extension a shot and let me know how it goes: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dlkpkmehbgbpobaidinekoedabkdidnb

Here are some screenshots of the extension in action:


In the near future, I plan to add a way to take screenshots from within the extension. More feature suggestions, feedback and bug reports are welcome!
