How to invert colors in Google Chrome

For some people it’s really hard to use Google Chrome – or any other browser – with the default color scheme. At night in bed, as an example, you’re better of using dark colors instead of bright colors so you won’t hurt your eyes. So this is how to invert colors in Google Chrome for easier reading.

Google Chrome’s high contrast extension

If you’re using Chrome (and you better be), Google has a great extension for color inverting, which leads to a high-contrast webpage and easier to read text. After installing this extension, it adds a small button in the toolbar. Pressing the button causes webpages to become “inverted”, which means white becomes black, and black becomes white:

The extension has 6 modes:

  • Normal
  • Increased contrast
  • Grayscale
  • Inverted Color
  • Inverted Grayscale
  • Yellow on Black

Unlike other extensions which try to change the default colors, this extension is unique in that it applies filters to the page, inverting everything except photos.
