userstyles.org - Dark Forces for Chess.com

I got tired of my eyes burning and feeling inflamed after using chess.com for much of the day. Save your eyesight with this ultra-dark style that removes much of the glaring bright white background on chess.com, at least on the Live Chess screen where many of us spend a lot of time. I am igor at http://techlorebyigor.blogspot.com and I code dark styles for several web sites. Wherever there is white, let us replace that with black. Note: I do not interfere with chess.com advertising. My focus here is on adjusting the brightness, nothing else.

To use this style, install Firefox and Stylish. If you already have Stylish, make sure this site is allowed to run JavaScript.

(Though installing Stylish is recommended, if your browser supports user scripts, you can also install this style as a user script.)

Notes

10/09/2013: Version 2.6 darkens the Live Chess game frame which had been brightened by recent chess.com changes.

11/06/2012: Version 2.5 corrects an issue with the upgrade button & another with the chess diagram feature when posting comments and messages

10/17/2012: Version 2.4 scratches just about every itch. Welcome to the dark side!

10/14/2012: Version 2.3 goes a few steps closer to nocturnal perfection, aligning more elements with the Moon goddess. We are almost at all-dark backgrounds, not quite there yet but very close.

10/12/2012: Version 2.1 fixes a few problems relating to insufficient contrast & undesirable white backgrounds on certain elements. Tested most of all on the Live Chess screen and front page, where I spend the majority of my time. Definitely some imperfections and time-consuming problems remain. Chess.com .css not the easiest to deal with. I am mainly focused on game play here.
