Edit Any Page In Your Browser!

Have a close look at this picture:

Ever wanted to scare a friend by editing a page on the CNN website? Ever wanted to know how people talk about a 24$ AdSense click?

You can edit everything from your browser itself (tested in IE 7 and FF3)

There are two methods, both work:

  • Using a code:

javascript:document.body.contentEditable='true'; document.designMode='on'; void 0

Just enter the above code into your address bar (the one where you type in) and the page you are on will go into ‘edit mode’.

  • Click the link below, it will perform the same function as the code. If you wish, drag the link to your bookmarks column.

  1. Good trick to make a Google search results page. People do this to ‘prove’ they are #1 in the Google SERP, when they are not.
