Sass vs CSS Scan Pro: What are the differences?

What is Sass? Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets. Sass is an extension of CSS3, adding nested rules, variables, mixins, selector inheritance, and more. It's translated to well-formatted, standard CSS using the command line tool or a web-framework plugin.

What is CSS Scan Pro? The definitive browser extension to work with web design. It makes it radically easy to get the looks of your favorite websites. Hover over any element, and get its CSS, font, dimensions, animations and selector, instantly.

Sass and CSS Scan Pro can be categorized as "CSS Pre-processors / Extensions" tools.

Sass is an open source tool with 12.4K GitHub stars and 1.92K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Sass's open source repository on GitHub.

and
PostCSSPostCSS

Originally, I was going to start using Sass with Parcel, but then I learned about Stylus, which looked interesting because it can get the property values of something directly instead of through variables, and PostCSS, which looked interesting because you can customize your Pre/Post-processing. Which tool would you recommend?

You're not correct with saying "vs Postcss". You're using Less/Sass/Stylus/... to produce "CSS" (maybe extended means it has some future features) and then in any case PostCSS will play (it is shipped with Parcel/NextJS/CRA/...)

        Less
        Less is a CSS pre-processor, meaning that it extends the CSS language, adding features that allow variables, mixins, functions and many other techniques that allow you to make CSS that is more maintainable, themable and extendable.
        PostCSS
        PostCSS is a tool for transforming CSS with JS plugins. These plugins can support variables and mixins, transpile future CSS syntax, inline images, and more.
        Stylus
        Stylus is a revolutionary new language, providing an efficient, dynamic, and expressive way to generate CSS. Supporting both an indented syntax and regular CSS style.
        Compass
        The compass core framework is a design-agnostic framework that provides common code that would otherwise be duplicated across other frameworks and extensions.
