I am Ankur Anand, a student from India.. While working on the theme for my blog, i thought of an idea to provide a 'Design in the Browser' approach to designing or customizing a Wordpress theme. 

The idea is to use a Firebug (http://getfirebug.com/)/Firefox Inspect (http://blog.mozilla.com/blog/2012/01/31/firefox-adds-powerful-new-developer-tools/) interface to make changes to the CSS of the elements loaded, and then upload the changes back to the server. The main idea is to provide a tool which lets us edit the CSS Live in the browser and then save the changes. 
Here is the overview of the idea : http://ankuranand.in/blog/2012/02/rethinking-wordpress-theme-editor/.
Also, i have added mockups and detailed explanation of the idea and the features. http://ankuranand.in/blog/2012/02/rethinking-wordpress-theme-editor-part-2/. 

I have already started working on the project, and needed suggestions from the community members over the design, features and implementation of the idea.I wanted to do this as a Google Summer of Code project.
