Edit Any Website (free tool)

This is how you can edit any website directly from your browser:

Step 1.) Highlight the text in the blue box:

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

Step 2.) Drag the highlighted text into your bookmarks bar.

Step 3.) Click the icon whenever you want to edit any page!

 

Try it for yourself:

Click this link, and instantly you'll be able to edit the text on this page from your browser. Reload the page if you want to quit editing.

There's a bunch of useful AND silly uses for this little editing hack!

 

A Helpful Use Case:

If you're a copywriter doing consulting session with a client, you can edit their page live to show them how it will look:

A Fun Use Case:

Make your bank balance look super huge! Move over Bill Gates, my BankOfAmerica account now has billions of dollars:

This helpful little bookmark has been extremely useful for me through the years, hope you enjoy it too!

On some browsers this may not work by dragging the text. In that case just:
⇨ Create a bookmark
⇨ Edit the "URL" field to:
javascript:document.body.contentEditable = 'true'; document.designMode='on'; void 0

Like this:

Then you can hit that bookmark and any webpage will become "editable!"

Another tip if you copy/paste and it STILL doesn't work:

  • Make sure each ' is actually just a straight up and down character and not a stylized like this ’ (⬅️ notice the little curve).
  • For the longest time my mac would automatically turn ' into ’ when copying it into notes or copy and pasting.
  • The only fix I could find was to manually type each '

 

No 

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

 

Yes 

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