I was a bit harsh on the Stylish ff extension earlier
. I mean, for starters it has made Lib Dem Act bearable to look at...
But what is this Stylish thing?
I hear you cry. Well, if you are using Firefox, you can install Stylish
and use it to make websites with colour schemes which you don't like, or which give you a headache, or which you can't read due to vision impairment... You can use it to make them better.
Let's use Lib Dem Act as an example. Here is what it looks like in it's natural form:
Now, lots of people really like that. It's
a Tory colour scheme
fresh and trendy and exciting. But two minutes looking at that big sea of white + very bright colours, and I'll be having a migraine. This is the reason my blog is coloured the way it is.
Install Stylish, and add the style "Lights Out
" and it looks like this:
MUCH more bearable.
However, I realise that there are lots of you out there who like to have the pattern of your retinas emblazoned on the back of your skulls. If you're one of these, you want "Black Text on White Background
", which makes Lib Dem Act look like this:
And my blog look like this:
Horrible, isn't it?
* shudder *
But yes, Stylish allows you to customise the web to make it look how you want it to be, whatever that might be. You can even, Cthulhu help me, make everything pink if you should so desire.
So really, seriously now, you have NO REASON WHATSOEVER to complain at ANYBODY about how they design their blog. You don't like it? Change it your bloody self and stop whining.
