I played a little bit with this app and after some testing I purchased it. Sure, there are many css editors out there but I was looking for a nice app to play with existing sites and code. Many other tools are just too overwhelmed with features. I loved xyle scope and xpressive seems to be a perfect replacement. It's like Dev Tools with the additional option to save your changes - so no need to always copy code and paste it in a text editor. Some things do not work as I expected (e.g. I still could not find an easy way to add a selected element to a media query) so I can't give it a full 5 star rating. If you are looking for a tool to inspect existing code, make adjustments to the DOM and CSS and save your work, I can highly recommend it. If you are looking for an app to build your next website, I think there are better tools out there to get you started.

"Enter the new process of 'live' design with XPressive." Well, no… CSSEdit did this exceptionally years ago. Espresso does it ok, but not as good of an editor as CSSEdit was. Xpressive may be that CSSEdit replacement? Will have to download the trial and see.

Not sure why people would be downrating me for this comment when it is the plain truth? Maybe it is the developer downrating me? Anyway, their choice of wording in the description just needs to be changed. There is nothing "new" about the process of live design or live CSS editing. It's been around for years.

As far as I see, in Flux you can't open an existing site on the web, you can only start from scratch. Maybe I am wrong.
