What really annoys me with current web development is the obsession with white backgrounds and black text. Personally I find this very hard to reed and often gives me a headache. While this is relativity easy to fix with most of the OS by changing themes, it is not easy to fix the huge number of websites (including this one), that use high contrast interfaces.

Fixes that modify the pages CSS like greasemonkey, or disabling 'allow pages to choose there own colours' do not work(especially the latter) because thay break the layout of many websites by stopping CSS background images from loading. Also, these techniques don't affect images or flash content embedded in the page i.e.


What I am wandering is If firefoxes plug in interface is able to assess the rasterised page just before its drawn to the screen, so it would be possible to 'post proses' the image by applying a user editable RGB curve to the rendered page i.e.
perminantly fixing the biggest problem with most websites. or would this require editing firefox itself?

If you use Compiz Fusion, you can hit <Super>+N to do pretty much what you want.

<Super> + N is great! (Windows key + N if you don't know it's called super)

Don't hold the key combo down if you're prone to seizures.

actually I use Awesome (http://awesome.naquadah.org/) most of the time, used gnome for the screen shots because I haven't worked out how to take a screen shot of awesome yet :lolflag:
