Colourless Browsing is a simple extension that is used to browse the net in black and white (grayscale). The activated state is easier on the eyes and increases concentration on colour messy websites.

Toggle the display of colours by pressing ALT + C, or pick your own keyboard shortcut from the options page. Chrome remembers activation of Colourless Browsing between browsing sessions.

The extension is also compatible with Retina displays.

0.2 Change log:

  • Fixed a bug where grayscale was triggered unintended.
  • Added support for cmd modifier on OS X.
  • Several optimizations.

Works as intended, but would be more useful as a button than a shortcut key, and messes up some pages. The fade is nice.
