    Modern framework to print the web correctly.                                                (by BafS)

    Recently, I re-designed my blog and I went looking for a Print CSS starter framework. I found a nice, simple, lean one -- Gutenberg[1]. It is less than 5KB before zipping.

    I hope people still do print.css. I also have a habit of printing interesting articles to read away from the screen.

  • opendyslexic

    OpenDyslexic, a typeface that uses typeface shapes & features to help offset some visual symptoms of Dyslexia. Now in SIL-OFL.

    You could try disabling Smooth Scrolling in chrome://flags then scrolling using the arrow keys. If that works, there's tons of "better" smooth-scrolling bits of JS gunk out there that try and trap the browser scroll mechanics and do horrible things to it; you could look at these scripts for ideas about how to correctly eat scroll events, and then build something that breaks the scroll process up into "steps". Yep, I'm basically describing making scrolling more choppy - on the theory that there might be a "jump" size that's Just Right™ for your eyes/brain.

    Another possibility could be setting your reading font to OpenDyslexic: https://opendyslexic.org/ (or the $$$ https://www.dyslexiefont.com/en/typeface/)

    Yet another could be installing BeeLine reader, which styles text using gradients: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/beeline-reader/ifj...

  • bookmarklets

    Some bookmarklets for your browser to make life easier (by phuhl)

    This bookmarklet marks where the bottom of the page was when you press space to page-down[1]

    I modified it so the marker is not a red line, but a transparent gray block marking the part of the page you've already seen. (Sometimes I couldn't find the red line before it fades away, and I find the gray block less distracting.)

    Then I added it to ViolentMonkey (user script) so it's always activated without having to click the bookmarklet.
