CSS How to Make a Website Debugging HTML and CSS Problems Use Developer Tools

Use developer tools to "copy" an existing webpage?

Seeing as all of the code is shown inside developer tools. In theory, could we copy a website, and tweak it until it fits personal needs?

Of course, I am not saying I want to go around copying websites. I just say that it sounds like a decent way to get ground-work established. Or am I wrong here? :)

Sort of. Keep in mind that what you want is the directory, not just the html, css, etc. You will need all the different media assets like image files. You will also need any type of script or css framework(bootstrap, foundation) they are using.

If you have a Mac you can use Sitesucker.
