I often encounter professional web designers who like to display light text on dark backgrounds (sometimes white text on a black background), but have they ever wondered how much eyestrain it causes to the reader and how much difficult it is to read the text?
Annoyed by light text on a dark background?
I really didn’t know how to echo my thoughts, till Ironic Sans provided me a way to inform webmasters that readability was an issue with their site, the eyestrain was not tolerable and keeping me away from visiting their site and reading their great content.
Try to read through the paragraph for yourself.
If you could not read through that, they provide a cool bookmarklet (drag and drop to your browser toolbar), that you can use when you encounter light text on dark backgrounds – simply click it and it will fix the site design with dark text on a light background. Now that bookmarklet is a permanent addition to my tools.
