BROKEN - Chrome no longer supports Custom.css. This means you have to use extensions (Stylebot, Stylish) and styling internal chrome:// pages is strictly not allowed: hide Show Password and hide search engine Make Default button styles fail.
We had a good run while it lasted. Firefox has userContent.css, userChrome.css and now the astonishing gCLI.

Tweaks for Chrome.
  • Slick scrollbarNo-background, thin, rounded scrollbar
  • Center imagesMakes images open prettier - centered, no scrollbars. Great for fullscreen. Pan around by scrolling or middle-click.
  • Disable Google Chrome default orange glow around inputs and textareasaka the outline for accessibility purposes
  • Don't display Most visited sitesBuggy. Sometimes top sites show up, but when you refresh they're back in hiding.
Read through these, some might be accessibility issues.

Preferred method of installation:
Copy and Paste the CSS code (click Show CSS above) in the Custom.css file from the, then save it. That's it.

To install as a userscript (without Stylish) just locate the .user.js file that downloads when clicking "Install this style as a userscript", open chrome://extensions from the omnibox and drop the .js file on the Extensions page (Drop to install appears)
