Dark theme extension for Wikipedia

I spend a lot of time on wikipedia. A lot of times, to wind down the day, I will just get lost on wikipedia for an hour or two before bed. This is problematic though, because staring into a light bulb for a few hours (in a dark room) right before bed doesn't play well with trying to sleep. I found a neat script to darken the theme of wikipedia, but it hadn't been updated in a while and didn't quite work with the new theme they are using. I took about an hour today to get it running well enough for me, fixing some things the original author left out (like better link colors) and removing other fluff. The results are shown below:

If you would like to install the script (Greasemonkey, but just works on Chrome), click here.

  1. You might try redshift, which automatically adjusts your display color setting according to you timezone. So you're aligned to your environment and should be able to go asleep ;) Makes probably more sense than optimizing single applications or websites.
