This question already has an answer here:

I've been looking for a way to dial down reddit's white background late at night. I ended up using Control Freak (which is very cool) with my own custom styles. It works perfectly.

Except when it loads a new page it still defaults to white for a couple seconds before loading my custom styles (which show up in "user agent stylesheet" in dev tools)

Is there any way to prevent the screen from flashing bright white, like it does, before the user agent stylesheet is loaded?

Once in after installing the plugin go to the plugin preferences and modify the colour you want as background.

  • Incidentally, incredibly difficult to find this one in the store. Nothing comes up when looking for the 'background color' or even 'color change'. A very obscure, hidden extension. – access_granted Nov 9 '17 at 23:07

I wrote a small extension to change text/background color for chrome browser.

With mouse dragging, page color will change in real-time. So you can adjust and adjust ... until you feel satisfied.

Here is the online installation link from chrome web store.

It is pretty simple to use... no need any instructions.
