Why is text of sumissions in low-contrast grey on HN?
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 18 Oct 2023
It seems that HN has a lot of anti-user features for the sake of it. Perhaps the rationale for graying out self posts is to make them not stand out (so that the post from OP doesn't get any undue advantage over the comments), but it's just an accessibility nightmare. It's as if people with poor eyesight were not welcome here.
I use Refined Hacker News https://github.com/plibither8/refined-hacker-news which alleviates some pain points, but unfortunately it doesn't fix this issue.

Not that this should be the answer, but there are a lot of HN browser plugins. Most have at least some level of theming and inline commenting. I'm currently a fan of Refined Hacker News (no affiliation) - https://github.com/plibither8/refined-hacker-news - but I'm sure there are others just as good out there.
API Update: Continued access to our API for moderators

Hacker news on y Combinator seems like an OK option, at least for those who are tech focused and prefer the old interface. There's the Refined Hacker News which, while not as good as Reddit Enhancement Suite, does make it a lot more bearable. But I don't think Hacker news will really appeal to the masses. There's no communities or subbreddits or any other grouping of users/posts.

Tell HN: My Hacker News app (HACK) is sort of broken this afternoon

Based on the screenshot in this issue, looks like that extension is also using XPath/CSS query selection to achieve it's functionality. So, I think it's suffering similar issues:

Probably not so useful for mobile, but have a look at Refined HN extension: https://github.com/plibither8/refined-hacker-news
I discovered it a few days ago. It seems to include a "override CSS" box in the menu, allowing anyone to customize the look of HN.
