Darken text
Item media 1 screenshot

Overview

This extension darkens text in <p> tags to make blog text more readable.

To improve readability, you can darken text (DT) on blog and news articles with one click. Don't you hate it when bloggers or designers think that light grey text on a grey background is artistic? Dude, hello? It's practically invisible! I'm trying to read your article here.... This Chrome extension installs a button labelled "DT" that you can click on to darken text inside <p> tags so that the text becomes more readable. No instruction manuals. Just a simple single click and it turns <p> tagged text to black. I found that I'm using it all the time, so version 1.1 adds a keyboard shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+K (or COMMAND+SHIFT+K on Mac). As of version 1.1 the text color of the following tags are turned to black: <p>, <div>, <li>, <article>. Hope this helps you guys. Email me if you have any features requests. I'll make the DT Chrome Extension do anything you want except wipe your butt. You'll have to ask your mommy to do that for you. BTW, feel free to email me if you need a programmer. I'm a freelance web developer. Cheers! David :) thirdreplicator@gmail.com http://www.davidbeckwith.com

How to know it's darkened the text? Why no indicator to indicate that it did it? E.g. like highlight the icon in some way. Cuz I saw no change in text at a few sites tried. Google chrome has GREY text, not pure black like in Slim Browser etc.. So does this make the grey text black? Plus, the totally off-topic vulgarity in his description in the Chrome Web Store creates a bitter association/memory etc. It totally put me off this thing. Good riddance.
