: This hack requires the Stylebot Chrome Extension (Still testing with Firefox CSS extensions!) and the free and beautiful Source Sans Pro.

It’s a work in progress, but I’ve been using this for a couple weeks and have found it hard to go back.

Some fringe pages still need styling, I’d like to add some basic media queries and try again to get this working with a Firefox CSS extension.
