There is some criticism of the new ABW look and feel in the area of readability. More than one has posted that it is hard on their eyes. I offer a suggestion that works on any site you visit often and would like to change it's look.
This is for Firefox users. Get the Stylish 1.0.8
add-on. It will allow you to set custom CSS for any URL. In this case I created a style called "ABW Darker Post Contrast" and anytime on a page where the url starts with www.abestweb.com it will apply my styles.
Now when I view a post it will change the div elements Fonts to black color and set the Background to white. You can change anything you like that is done with CSS.
This is better than making global changes in how your Firefox renders as it allows you to adjust to each site. There is a little icon to just turn it off if you need.
I discovered this when I had to visit daily one of those dark sites that was all black with some white fonts.

Post a screenshot of your ideal color scheme. I'd like to see how it differs from the default ABW color scheme. I'm always looking for opportunities to improve ABW.

I really am a fan of the new ABW look over all.

I haven't tried John's solution but the light blue on lighter blue is a real problem for me. The bold blue for unread is better, but really, I'd like to see black text overall.Deborah Carney
