I find sites like Daring Fireball impossible to read. I’m not sure what it is, but the dark background makes my eyes go blurry. My issue is certainly not just limited to that one site either—dark background-ed sites are all over.
I’d been wishing there was some way to remedy this for a long time now, and while Readability got us half-way, it isn’t perfect for this purpose. It works extremely well on individual articles, but what if you wanted to invert the look of a homepage or a forum or anything else non-article?
Now you can. With Snowball.
It doesn’t work on every site, but I’m adding new rules all the time. If it doesn’t work for your favourite site just let me know and I’ll see if I can make it work.
