High Contrast

Description from extension meta

Change or invert the color scheme to make webpages easier to read.

Image from store High Contrast
Description from store High Contrast lets you browse the web with your choice of several high-contrast color filters designed to make it easier to read text. When you install this extension, all pages are "inverted", so black becomes white and white becomes black. Press the "browser action" icon in the toolbar to toggle it on and off, or customize your settings on a per-site basis. Use a convenient keyboard shortcut to quickly change your settings while you browse. Other extensions try to change the default colors, but this ends up breaking many popular websites. Only this extension applies filters to your page that invert almost everything - the only exception is photos, which are left alone. Also note that the Chrome web store and other built-in pages like the New Tab page and Settings pages are unaffected - extensions like this one are not allowed to modify them, by design.

  • (2020-04-16) John S Wolter: High Contrast solved the problem of reading the plague of websites published with gray-scale text. It darkened text to black using the "Increased Contrast" choice from the icon. Now, the text is far easier to read. I use that setting as my default. That solved the problem I was having. I haven't encountered the CPU over heating problem mentioned by other reviewers. Tracking that problem requires the use of the Task Manager or other process mangers to discover which task is actually using such levels of CPU performance. The over heating problem sounds like overclocking but the reviewers didn't state that overclocking was being used. It could also be as simple as "dust bunnies" in the cooling passages or a failing cooling fan. -jsw

  • (2020-04-09) Ryan Perry: Really liked this.. BUT, it will cause images / text boxes to not render in Google Docs, which is a pretty big deal if you use them with any regularity.

  • (2020-03-23) Lance Lovett: Makes images look horrible. A few tweaks and it would be great.
  • (2020-03-23) Кирилл Ляшенко: Часто сталкиваюсь с багом, когда настройки цвета слетают. И внезапно твоя темная тема инвертируется в белую, пока не обновишь страницу. Можете посмотреть метрики пользователей. Уверен, с этим расширением пользователи обновляют страницы чаще. Уж лучше жить со светлой темой, чем в вечном стрессе и ожидании удара по глазам
