Chrome is too damn bright!

I use white text and orange links on a black background for my surfing.

In Firefox:
Go to Tools-> Options-> Content tab-> Advanced button,
Set the color chips,
Uncheck "Use colors specified on web pages"
To toggle this effect, get the nifty "toggleDocumentColors" Add-On for a toolbar CSS toggle icon (get it from the customize dialog for the toolbar)

In IE:
Go to Tools-> Internet Options-> General tab
Click "Colors" to set the color chips,

Click "Accesibility Options"
Check "Ignore colors present on webpages"

For Chrome:
Find the application

Shift right-click to get a command line, and run it:

Then edit Custom.css
(C:\Users\Root\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\User StyleSheets)

Here's mine:


Happy Surfing. The Custom.css file take effect the moment you save changes, table {border:1;} for instance, would immediately reveal all the page table borders

Table rendering is extremely broken in FireFox5 for me right now.
That's why I needed to darken my Chrome.
