userstyles.org - Better Hacker News Design

A visual redesign of hacker news, trying to keep recognizable elements like the orange title bar, but improving some things of the orginal design which annoyed me.

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

0.3.4
  • Fixed style for FF (votebutton alignments, background, font size, font color, link color)
  • Removed css for search, as that site was redesigned and code didn't apply anymore
0.3.3
Fix: Realign downvote button

0.3.2
Add lost ycombinator logo

0.3.1
  • Fixed: React to new HTML on HN, which broke the votebuttons of this design (doubled them)
  • Visited links now become a light blue, not grey (styling wasn't applied before because of a typo)
  • Footer is now as wide as the title area, for symmetry
0.3:
Up/Downvote-arrows get blue on hover, which helps to click the right one when having both available

0.2.2:
Fixed: Links at bottom were invisible

0.2.1:
Fixed: Downvoted comments get gray again

0.2:
  • Highlighting of current top-navigation-link
  • Additional space between footer and site, important for threads without comments
0.1:
  • Bigger fonts (respecting browser-settings)
  • Higher contrast (almost black on white)
  • Colourful link, to better discover them and displaying the visited-state
  • Various visual improvements like increased line-height, vote-button aligned to position-number, more margins
  • Same style applied to the search
Based upon Hacker News Redesign and Colours names on YCombinator/HackerNews.
