    Thanks! More importantly, I appreciate the bid for world ruler (a benevolent dictatorship of course).

    I just noticed this morning that the current color scheme, with the extension on, makes urls stand out a bit more than they do without the extension.

    You know what would be cool? If the extension had a 'color wheel', where you could choose any color that suited your fancy.

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I don't know how that's possible since I don't manipulate links but good to know! Haha.

    I think this is the reason the links are standing out more now. With the previous setup the grey in the post text and grey in the links was the same or almost the same.

    BTW Does all this feedback would be appreciated and benevolent dictatorship mean wewon't be ruling with an iron fist?

    No, the prospect of being reminded is enough to get me to try it.

    Benevolent for some, iron fist for others.

    Thanks for the extension to make everyone happy. Life is good with choices and my choice is to stick with the gray color. It is easy on my old Mr Magoo eyes

    With just enough randomness thrown in to keep everyone guessing.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Of course, no one can know what side they're on. That's no fun.

    I fooled around with adding color selection capabilities last night. I hit one roadblock which, if fixable given my skills, should just about finish it.

    I have to agree with this. I would have thought the black text would be easier to read, but on comparing the two, I think the black text is too highly contrasted against the white. A slightly denser shade of gray MIGHT be a little better, but I'm against full-on black now.
