Customize Your Firefox: Invert Colors 1.2.1
Article by George Norman

The great thing about Mozilla’s take on the web browser, Firefox 3.0.5, is that it comes with tons of customization options – visual and useful ones . The Firefox add-on I would like to present to you today is called Invert Colors 1.2.1 and falls in the first category, the visual one.

The add-on functions in a simple enough manner – once you download it, it will modify the color scheme of the web pages you visit. The name, Invert Colors, pretty much gives it away, but trust me, when the add-on kicks in you will be surprised. For example the classic Google home page, not iGoogle, will become as dark as the night itself because the add-on will turn the white background into a black one (which could prove to be handy if your eyes are strained).


“The add-on is designed to reverse the colors of html and all color-related rules in CSS stylesheets (color, backgroundColor, borderTopColor, and the other border*Colors), and to change the html background color to black. It includes a global background image removal option, and a per-site override of the same (to always or never remove them),” explains the add-on’s developer.

Some sites you will not want to mess with, and that is why the add-on comes with a feature that allows you to override the invert colors action. Such a feature had to be introduced simply because the add-on will have problems with some sites, or simply because you like a particular site’s looks so much that you do not want to change them one bit.

Keeping with the “turn the background black” theme, it must be said that Ghoster, a simple, portable Windows application will darken the background, the taskbar, and all open windows apart from the active one. The goal is to provide you with a distraction-free environment so that you can focus on what you are doing.

Here are some other Firefox add-ons that you might want to use in order to modify the looks of your browser: Stop-or-Reload blends the Stop and Reload buttons together, Googlepedia displays relevant search results from the Wikipedia archive, Greasefire helps you find Greasemonkey scripts, and the Mozilla released Fashion your Firefox gives you numerous customization options.

If you would like to get Invert Colors, a download location is available here.
