userstyles.org - Reddit Web 2.0 Dynamic (RES friendly)

Initially this was meant to be a dark, somewhat minimal style for those like me that are distracted easily. Text that's used more is intended to stand out more to the reader while not having to blare at a bright white background. Text is restricted to the center of the page and marginalized. I've usually found this format less distracting for me to read on large monitors. Though recently I've retitled it to indicate its dynamic color scheme for those that would rather use a gray or default color scheme.

If in doubt about the choices below, leave as is for recommended style.

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

I'd recommend to untick "allow reddit to show me custom styles" in reddit preferences or else you may have a few glitches since subreddit styles can get pretty wild. I did very little to add compatibility with subreddit styles, partly to keep the code smaller and also because I can't be bothered.

I'd also recommend to disable RES night mode and other RES style tweaks for best color/style compatibility if you notice any inconsistencies.

Updates:
- Made a small adjustment to RES live comment previews.
- Fixed it so when in window mode and using multireddit sidebar, the grippy would be covered by the scroll wheel. Current fix isn't the most elegant looking but it works.

Thanks to reddit user cutcopy who did the original "web 2.0" mockup years ago that inspired others as well as myself to expand on it. Link: http://i.imgur.com/FiL29.png.

Also thanks to the creators of the other backgrounds whom I failed to find and to Imgur for hosting.
