The thing is, letting people create their own “look” isn’t a far-fetched idea; it’s a logical extension of the model the web already runs on. Website creators determine the look and feel of their site, and the visitors are stuck with whatever horrible or beautiful designs that they come up with. Myspace just made it absurdly easy to make a personal website and style it truly poorly.
We shouldn’t have to be dependent on what website and “content” creators want to foist on us. Whether it’s ugly tables or comic-sans, we shouldn’t have to look at it. This idea isn’t new, Helveticareader pretties up Google Reader, and Helvetical (get it?) does the same for Google Calendar via the clunky interface of a Grease Monkey script.
What I want is a Firefox/Chrome/Firebug (heck, even IE) extension that saves the changes I make to a site’s css from the inspector and remembers it every time I come back there. What’s more, you should want it too, because the other thing that I want is an easy site to share and vote on different website “skins”. Let’s give the web back to the people. Viva la Resolution and never again will I have to look at your puce tables with a 10px black border around each cell. You asshole.
