Let us now praise Outline

Original in Chrome

It's a Chrome extension that not only declutters web pages, but also gets rid of gimmicky color schemes and resulting hard to read typefaces.*

Outlined

Res ipsa loquitur.

Free, the way we like it.

*John Gruber, I'm talking to you

........................................................

Note added at 12:34 p.m. today: All possible love to reader Charlotte Keys for pointing out in a comment that I initially linked to the wrong Chrome extension. 

It's been corrected.

Also, the idiot responsible for this mistake has been handed his hipster hat and shown the doorway and told "Hey, what's your hurry?"

heh
