I have to say that I think this option is better than my original recommendation; my original recommendation was great for quick looking, this is better for making release packages.

I have a great option - at least I totally love it - although it is neither a web-app or a Linux application.

Usage: just load page (via web, localhost (as in my picture) or even just filesystem, open firebug console and click css usage tab Click SCAN review ...

I recommend Cloud9. It meets and exceeds your requirements: It supports Javascript, HTML, CSS, and many more It has Syntax Highlighting, Auto-completion, and Source formatting, using the Ace editor that's used by sites like GitHub - in fact, Cloud9 is the "C" in "Ace" Its 'Projects' are not only separate directories with remembered views, but separate ...

There is another add-on called Stylus which is a Stylish fork for Firefox, Chrome and Opera without analytics. I wanted to update the answer to this question, because as of August 2017, Stylish has apparently become associated with tracking user browsing, and I'm concerned with it sending my browsing data to third parties.

There are many tools which can accomplish that. I personally liked Eclipse IDE for JavaScript developers. I also used Eclipse for Java with HTML/JS plugins to achieve the same thing. It supports tabs, projects, and many other things. It works on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X. The only downside of Eclipse is that some users find it too heavy when used on low ...

What happened to the CSS? "Not structured CSS" doesn't exist: if it is not (correctly) structured, it does not work. Your CSS has been minified. This means any superfluous space (line breaks are considered as superfluous space) are removed. The purpose of this operation is to make the file lighter, thus reducing the load on the server and making the ...

Adobe Brackets provides live previews of your pages and has a lot of convenient features for web developers. From their site: Also, there are plugins like W3C Validation to check for errors, but I think it has built-in checking as well.

There is frankly no good answer, because whichever tool you end up using will invariably mess up the code under it. I have not seen a single tool released in the past 14 years that was able to generate markup that could be considered acceptable. In addition, most WYSIWYG editors are completely incapable of generating markup/CSS that works across browsers, ...

I use codepen.io for all my front end testing. It's probably the best site I've ever used for jquery/css/html testing. For CSS it includes SASS, SCSS, LESS, and Stylus with all their respected addons. I couldn't recommend it more for front end developers.
