It's getting hard to read things on the web
I don't know when everyone decided light gray text on white backgrounds was the standard uniform of the web, but I'd much rather have garish colors if it means the text is at least legible
@cypnk There's like a 99% chance I'm going to stop using a site if they pull that shit. Hell, there's a 99% chance I'll stop if they don't have a dark theme available.
@cypnk it became quite fashionable in web designer circles, there SAS a good Wired! article about it a while ago:
@Qwxlea Oh yes, I forgot about this article. It's really annoying and I'm a little disappointed things haven't improved much since this was published
@valeg That's really annoying. Sometimes, I see folks have changed the selection colors too so even that's broken
Times I wish I could just wholesale block CSS
@cypnk What's worse, due to some weirdness in my monitor, the text on these sites is literally invisible unless it's at the very top or very bottom of my screen.
@Draconicrose That really is worse :(
I imagine there has to be others with similar monitor issues that find these sites unusable for the most part
@cypnk I imagine so. My usual solution, if I can't get the text in an area where it's visible, is to highlight it. Not the best way to read things though.
@cypnk also, 3 GB for one page of text
Ok, I made that number up but it's taking ridiculous amounts of resources
