Making Google Reader Easier on the Eyes

Making Google Reader Easier on the Eyes

Google Reader hurts my eyes.

It could be the fact that I’m looking at it the majority of the time that I’m awake, but I like to think its because it’s not the most readable website.

12 pt font; black on a white background. It hurts.

So, rather than cut back my Google Reader time, and spare my eyes, I made a Chrome Extension.

Inspired by Readability, the extension increases the font size, darkens the background, and brightens the font.

It’s just a few lines of CSS, but it does the trick.

If you are as addicted as I am, feel free to try it out. You can download it here.
