    Thanks! I do like my little challenges. I'll see what I can do to refine this a little more when I get some free time tonight.

    "Color" me impressed, Van!

    Holy cow, that's awesome! You are a magician. Or a witch. I am not sure.

    Thanks!

    What's there to refine? User selectable colors?

    Quotes are still grey along with a few other things. I'll fool around to see if I can get all lighter colour text dark.

    Glad you enjoy it!

    I think I'm going to go with Jedi as proposed earlier.

    When I first came onto this site I was like what's up with this gray color? Now I agree it is a lot easier on the eyes and my guess is that the new updates to this site will allow you to change the font color. I will elect to keep it gray.

    I like it! I think the grey text causes me some eye strain. I tried making my posts black, but, well, never mind.

    I really think I'd prefer black. Grey is okay but doesn't have that sharp contrast that I think would make it easier on the eyes.

    As promised, I've updated the extension to make more text black without going overboard. Also, as an added bonus (because I'm such a nice guy ), I've made Chrome and Opera versions. Sorry Firefox users - my dislike for your browser and its complicated extension development system has prevented me from porting it over to the Mozilla platform.

    Safari version, Chrome version, Opera version.

    Updates since last time: quotes, codeblocks and smaller text around the forums (including user info on the left) are now black. If you grow tired of the change, you can disable each through their respective extension management pages/panes. You'll notice that links are still grey - it would seem that changing those requires changing all links and changing all links to black looks terrible in some spots. I'm working on this.

    Feedback is welcome and appreciated. The extensions look good here but we all know how software may work for one person and not for another.

    Thanks! It was really easy to make the other extensions since the code was the same and I figured I might as well make them for other browsers since we all use different ones.

    I like the grey color, i would actually really like the exact scheme used where you type to post. That's much easier on the eyes then the white/grey or white/black contrast. And the black and white contrast is actually bad for the eyes. Many articles say that if you spend long hours on a computer to change the background to something greyish so that your eyes have an easier time with the screen. Just what i read

    Major props for the work so far. Wish I had checked the thread when it first started.
