  • (2021-04-30) M K: You'd think there would be a ton of extensions that do this one simple thing... there aren't. This ext is the best I've found so far. Wish there were some options or other features but hey, it works.
  • (2021-04-28) Bob Flisser: This does not create a "CSS Path" tab in the inspector. It does create a right-click menu item to copy the CSS path, but that menu item doesn't do what it says. This extension might have worked in 2019, but it doesn't work in 2021. At least not on my MacBook.
