May 17: Enhance Your Chrome Browser with High Contrast

High Contrast lets you browse the web with your choice of several high-contrast color filters designed to make it easier to read text. When you install this extension, all pages are "inverted", so black becomes white and white becomes black. Press the "browser action" icon in the toolbar to toggle it on and off, or customize your settings on a per-site basis. This extension applies filters to your page that invert almost everything - the only exception is photos, which are left alone.

Instructions

  1. Visit the Chrome Web Store. On your Chromebook, you can also get there by clicking the Chrome Web Store icon in the system tray.
  2. Search "High Contrast".
  3. Select the "+ Add to Chrome" button. The extension will be added to your toolbar.
  4. Navigate to a website and select the icon in the toolbar to use the extension.
