    Cool idea. Though when trying out the demo and instantly selecting the whole website in the demo makes me hold off on downloading the extension.

    And 'pixel fucking' makes me hold off even more.

    When brogrammers come up with a tagline...

    Alright, we hear you, folks – we removed all of that bad language from the website. Sorry for the trouble!

      Looks way better, out of interest why did you include the swear words in the first place? "Pixel pushing" makes sense, "Pixel fucking" is a noodle scratcher.

        Two reasons:

        The term pixel fucking. It's not about "fuck the pixels", it's "make love to pixels". It's about making one pixel changes to fine tune a design so it's just right. It's about the feedback loop "can you make this title a bit more pop?" what ends with increasing and decreasing a font size a number of times and in the end leaving it as it was in the first place.

        Before Finch we all worked in a design agency and this was the term we used in the end of each project - the site is designed, freshly developed and now comes the pixel fucking - there are one pixel errors that need to be fixed. The designer changed his mind about some line heights and border widths. The client thinks that he knows something about design. The project manager has to translate it all to each person involved. The developer needs to understand it all and reimplement it numerous times. This whole process is pixel fucking for us and is the main problem we want to solve with Finch.

        Originally the term comes from visual effect artist community. Here's how they explain what pixel fucking is - https://vimeo.com/213520878#t=516s (if you haven't seen it already, I recommend the whole documentary).

        The second reason - we are a three guy team that tries to make a product for like-minded professionals. We did not wan't to make a corporate impression that there's a huge team behind the product or go the safe, inexplicable "Collaborate. Change. Together." way. So we decided to make the copy as we feel it and as wee see the problem we want to tackle. Our assumption was that seeing a "pixel fucking" title, visitors would understand what we are talking about or be intrigued to find out what we mean by that. But not be disgusted by a word, they, honestly, use every day. Lesson learned :)

          Cool - thanks for the explanation. I've honestly never heard the term before, I've worked as a Frontend dev/Designer in Ireland, New Zealand and the UK and it's the first time I've heard it. Maybe it's a regional thing? Fully understand why you included it initially. Best of luck with Finch!

    I missed the drama, but this actually said "pixel fucking" instead of "pixel pushing"? Really? Lame and stupid.

    Calm your tits everyone. Guys just spend pretty much time and energy to get their project done and all you do is just talking about some totally unimportant shit. I though that this community is a bit more mature.

    This is cool. It's like a suped-up Chrome inspector. I liked the way you could visually change margins and padding and view smartphone and tablet versions of the page. Is is able to handle source maps so you can update one's Sass as opposed to CSS?

      Inline source maps for Sass are supported for now. The css to sass part is experimental right now, but we are working on a stable support.
