Popular Tweaks with User Styles

Yes, I am still having fun playing with the Stylish extension for Firefox. There are a lot of neat hacks I guess you could call them to make some of your favorite Web sites and Online applications just look a little better. Here are a few of the more popular ones.

Darkoogle – Gives you that “hey, somebody just turned the lights out” feeling for the Google Web pages out there. Personally I like the white look a little more, but this is neat for trying something “a little different”.

Transparency Edits for iGoogle – Want to make a few elements on iGoogle a little more transparent? This user style makes your search at the top fade a little more into the background so it doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb.

Google Reader Optimized – This one takes away all of the useless things from around Google Reader (mainly from the top) and gives you a cleaner and more straight forward interface to work with.

Gmail Air Skin – Want to give Gmail a more curved interface? This style makes a lot of your menu items and the Gmail interface a little more “round” I guess you could say.

Have any other popular ones you love but I missed?

Google Reader Optimized

If you use either the Greasemonkey or Stylish Firefox extensions, I have the perfect extension for you when it comes to getting a little more browsing room while using Google Reader.

Just load this bad boy up via either one of those extensions and you should be good to go.

So where does it save you the room? Well for the most part it looks like it just cuts off the Google stuff from the top and gives you the “full view” of the reader. This is nice if you just hate seeing that Google Reader logo at the top every time you login.

New Digg, Old Style

Are you upset with the way Digg looks now at version 3? Well, with a little scripting and some CSS skills you can roll yourself back to a more pleasing version. Personally I like the new look, but I have seen others that do not. Here is the fix for your problem.

Stylish

Stylish is to CSS what Greasemonkey is to JavaScript. Stylish allows you to easily manage user styles for the application UI, all websites, or only certain websites. Stylish is better than using userChrome.css/userContent.css because styles are applied immediately instead of requiring a restart.
