Reduce Background Flicker

Description from extension meta

Prevent that annoying white flash between pages

Image from store Reduce Background Flicker
Description from store Switching between dark pages on Chrome can sometimes lead to a blinding flash of white. This extension tries to preserve background color between page loads, if possible. For the real Lords of Darkness out there, setting a custom user stylesheet to your preferred color (https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=1373#c261) will probably be more effective than this extension. The same trick applies to Firefox. Icon created by Anand A Nair from the Noun Project, CC.

  • (2018-08-30) DudeSicko: Not working as i hoped, when i close a tab i get like 0.1 sec white flash, so naah i got the same without, so no reason to have it :(
  • (2017-04-21) Thank you. Since it seems like Google will never attempt to allow a colour other than white for the background when changing page (given the length of time it's been open, it's obvious they don't care - but removing useful features is A-OK!), this extension works brilliantly for pages opened on the same tab. I guess that's why it's called Reduce Background Flicker :)
