Introduction: Edit Any Webpage on the Internet From Your Browser

Here's a fun Javascript hack that allows you to edit any webpage on the internet right from your browser. It doesn't make permanent changes to the page. So this isn't real "hacking". But, it's still a good way to fool friends.

It's real easy. All you have to do is:
1) Visit the page you want to change
2) Clear the current web address from your browser address bar at the top then add "javascript:document.body.contentEditable='true'; document.designMode='on'; void 0" and click Go. (do not use the double quotes, just what's inside the double quotes)
3) Click on the page where you want to edit and start typing away.

See the screenshot for an example of how it works.

Misleading title.
Any web designer knows about this, especially that it's only temporary.
Lame.

Title is not misleading. You can edit a webpage from your browser. If you clicked on this thinking you would be able to permanently change a webpage from a browser, then you probably don't know much about web design.

I didn't, I just don't understand why this is worthy of a post here.
It's just not constructive whatsoever.

Only to you because you knew about it, I can't tell you how many people have thanked me for teaching them this trick.

That's really cool, if only it was permanent.
