in DeepDark style

Added by Speedy1236@userstyles, Created: Oct 31, 2012, Updated: Jun 23, 2016


A dark style for and, for all those who prefer light text on dark backgrounds for longer reading. Color scheme inspired by the FT DeepDark theme for firefox. Black/dark grey and a few blue/cyan colors.

Copying story text works with this style active. Updates regularly as the site updates, too.

More info
This style resulted mostly from expermenting with colors and CSS effects. Now it features gloss, glowing text on links when you hover over them and some other things I find turned out pretty neat. Hope you like it! :)

I currently run it with Firefox 24. As I use the site myself a lot, I will update the style if something changes on the site that affects compatability.

Code based on Purple/Black/Gray & Ad Removal (; I used it for reference. Don't know enough CSS to understand what I'm doing without looking at the work of someone who knows what he's doing. ;)

Unlike the style credited above, this one doesn't include any ad-removal. It kept causing trouble with AdBlock Plus.

The last update FFN did to their site disabled highlighting/selecting text on story pages. It's obviously intended as some sort of copyright protection thingy, but really it's just pretty annoying if you want to quote from a story in a review or make a copy of a story you like on your computer for offline use. So, copying story text works again with this style.

Update 28th Nov: Tweaked a few things after the latest site update. Fixed icons on forum pages that were turned black by the update to light grey so you can properly see them. That was annoying. ;)

You should to add comment and rate the style.
