When using Firefox I use the Web Developer extension for exactly that
purpose, only a bit more manually.


Basically you can edit the CSS live and see the changes. Once I'm
satisfied, I can just select-all, copy, paste into the theme editor,
and save. Not the most efficient means of saving, but it does the job.

The main idea is to provide a tool which lets us edit the CSS Live in the browser and then save the changes.
