Inspected CSS and a 🦏 – Issue 187

Hello 👋

It’s Friday again. 

I want to share a newsletter I’ve been loving over the last few weeks…. Album Daily.

Does what it says – get an album recommended in your inbox every day (although you can get a weekly version too).

Not exactly startup related but helping with my downtime and broadening my music horizons.

I’ve featured it on Inbox Stash because it’s awesome. And I’m sponsoring their newsletter for a couple of weeks 🎧

Moving on…. did you know that you can get Basecamp for free?

Last week’s most clicked tool was FakeClients. Way, way, way out in front.

On to this week’s tools and articles…


🛠 Tools discovered recently

MageTools: DevTools Reimagined

Browser extension (Chrome only right now) for inspecting elements on the page. Really nice and smooth to use.

Damn I could have done with this when I was trying to figure out my CSS on Inbox Stash 🤦 Get this >>
