User reviews
Works perfectly, even with video players. Also compatible with Dark Reader, which is a huge bonus. I normally put a greyscale filter on my phone to stop me from getting too distracted, and the same would work on my PC, but I often need colour for pdf reading. Greyscale Browsing is the easiest solution to this by just dimming out my browser and nothing else :)
