Eye strain from browsing Paleo Hacks at night? Nope.

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created November 18, 2011 at 5:09 PM

I recently created a dark "theme" for Paleo Hacks that makes browsing the site in the evening a lot easier on the eyes. I originally made it for personal use, but over the last few days I've ironed out the details so that I could share it with everyone here. Looks like this:

alt text

It???s easy to install, you just need to have Chrome or Firefox and the Stylish for Chrome or Stylish for Firefox extension. Style page here: http://userstyles.org/styles/56471/dark-paleo-hacks

If you need detailed help installing I created a step-by-step blog post here. What do you guys think?

Edit: Looks like Stylish doesn't like Firefox, sorry guys. Chrome FTW

I use f.lux as well -- but I'll be using this, too, because the white-background pages still seem way too bright to me, even with f.lux running.

Yes you should! Firefox used to be my favorite browser, but I switched to Chrome a long time ago. Regarding the problem with Firefox, seems to be an issue with the extension, not the style code. I'll mess around with it some more but I'm not sure there is anything I can do.

F.lux is great, been using it for awhile. (I mention it in that blog post.)

If only I could install this on my iOS web browser. I spend many an hour in the dark nursing my baby to sleep reading paleo hacks with the brightness turned to the lowest setting. Hahaha
