Won’t apply to most of you, i know, but;
- I’m old.
I’m DOS’s forgotten user. The abyss of a black background becomes me. White is trendy shit, young folk stuff and something i’ve never for the life of me managed to come to terms with.
- Preferences aside, getting old means your eyes aren’t what they used to be, though thank the Lord i still do me some oogleing; on topic however, it means that by now, i really, really cannot stand white backgrounds, headache in 20 minutes tops, then a killer migraine if i decide i’ll play it stubborn.
Enter our belated topic at last, as i have until now been using Waterfox classic with Classic Theme Restorer. The two combined, together with stock options, allow for a perfectly black background (everywhere) browser.
Except we’ve all moved on to Chromium. For our own good. Obviously. Sites only update for Chromium-based browsers or downright block others.
Already, i see compatibility issues with certain few sites and i’m sure the list will gradually grow longer.
Tried the nu-Waterfox, hate everything Google, so what a supripse, being very Googlesque, it doesn’t allow you to do the stuff you once could. I hate Google.
And definitely no black background, not a functional one. You try simply changing the colours in the stock options, buttons disappear, search images don’t show, etc. etc.
You can’t work with it.
I’ve seen various .css tweaks, but all they offer is an autist’s heaven about clickity clicks and buttanz and space margins (ffs, really), leaving pretty much everything of import stock.
What does one do?
Rhetorical, but maybe someone has a magic answer; a different browser i’m not aware of that would work for me, a ready-made ‘theme’ i’ve missed, etc.
Otherwise, my thanks for reading, had to whine somewhere am afraid
P.S. To illustrate:
