Stylish

Many moons ago Woldstart covered a Firefox add-on called Stylish. Stylish lets you add zest and revamp the looks of your favorite websites, including Facebook, YouTube, and Google. The layouts that work with Stylish are all user-donated, which means they were developed by people just like you. There are a bunch of neat new styles that I think you’ll enjoy on your most-visited websites, so let’s check them out!

If this is your first time using Stylish in Firefox, you’ll need to install the add-on. It’s quite simple; navigate to this link. Click the Add to Firefox button, followed by Install.



Finally, just select Restart Now.



Also Stylish now supports the browser Google Chrome! To install, visit here, and simply press the blue Install button.

There is an entire library of user styles that you can add to Firefox at http://userstyles.org/.



To demonstrate how to add user styles, I am going to show you three of my favorite styles. The first two are dark themes: they primarily use light text on a dark background. Don’t you think that dark themes are much easier on the eyes, especially at night? Also, I recently read a study that showed a monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen. So these tweaks can help you and me save some energy… every little bit counts!

Dark Google

To install a user style, just find their page in the userstyles.org directory, and select the green Install with Stylish button.



A dialogue box will appear confirming your request, press Install again.



Now you can head over to the website to view your new style at work!
Dark Google is an elegant solution that works across nearly every Google service (Images, Videos, etc.). It uses an eye appealing color scheme of charcoal, white, and yellow.



Shiny Blue YouTube
This add-on makes me feel a little more like I’m sitting in a theatre when watching YouTube videos. Instead of being completely black, this styles uses a few mellow shades of blue. Remember, there are other YouTube themes that you might like, so make sure you check them out.



Simpsons Facebook (link)
Just to show you that the user styles creators have a fun side, they made a Facebook theme that is completely filled with our buddies Marge, Homer, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. If you’re a Simpsons fan, you need to download this theme! Once again, be sure to check out all of the other themes stylish has to offer for Facebook and other websites; there’s thousands of them!



Thanks for tuning in!

    This looks like changing Themes using your browser instead of operating
    system like you can using Windows 7.
