Get computed css styles for a given element

I just found out that it is possible with pure javascript. It's supported in all the major browsers. Find more information here.
getComputedStyle(document.querySelector("h1"), null);

Getting the background style for example:

getComputedStyle(document.querySelector("h1"), null).background;
