Default inverted color internet browsing

This is my first smartphone. After looking through apps and settings everywhere, I gave up and figured you guys would know.
I want to invert the color scheme for the internet. Make internet pages display white text on a black background and so on. Many people do this on their computer browsers as it is easier on the eyes. On computers, people just use stylesheets to accomplish this.

How can I do this on my Droid incredible internet? Or must the phone be rooted for this sort of customization? Is their another internet app that has this function?

Honestly, it makes browsing the internet much easier. My eyes don't go to shit.

I figured since it was becoming so popular on PC browsers, someone knew how to do it here.

I doubt that this can be done for the default browser, but hopefully someone can come up with a Dolphin Browser plug-in that does something like this.

Wink solved

This feature is available in the stock browser if you are running Cyanogen 6.1. You must be rooted and have a phone that has a Cyanogen ROM build available. Look under browser setting for "Invert Color".

Honestly, if you haven't rooted your phone, do it. Once you are rooted, nothing appears any different. However, you have many new options and features available to you on demand, including speed enhancements, UI enhancements, extra features, and regular updates.

Sad I want this too.

I get floaters in my vision. I have an HTC desire and want a tablet too. I would stick with android for sure if I had this feature. I have zoomtext on pc and tried the ipad. It is brilliant for color inversion. Come on google. I thought you were supposed to be working disabled blind midgets round the clock on accessability? Most people do not need hard core talking stuff.

I was looking for a solution to this too and didn't find one i liked. Dolphin HD's "Reader" addon was close, but it added padding to the browser on my Epic.

So... i decided maybe a javascript bookmarklet could do what i wanted. turns out, it did.

This has only been tested in the Android 2.3.4 stock browser. To use it, copy the code from the link below into the android clipboard and add a new bookmark, pasting the code into the URL box. Give it a name like "Invert Color". Then when you're viewing a page you want to invert, open the bookmarks menu, and click this bookmarklet.

tonymuka.com/js/ (sorry, i dont have enough posts here to link. check me out over at xda if you like...)

Enjoy!

Default That solution works great!

I would like to give you ten dollars for this as it is so important to me. Please provide a paypal donation button or email via private message. Another ten if you can get the code to run by default on all pages. Thanks. You are a hero.

I have found the best way to get this script to run is to connect the bookmark to a letter i for invert gesture and the gesture button in the bottom right. Then while a page is loading tap and draw the I. Only takes 1 second and one thumb movement.

Glad you like it! Your gesture idea is a great improvement too!

There is another persistent option this inspired over at xda.

Default Galaxy s3 has true invert color widget

Just got one and was pleasantly surprised to see this built in under accessability.
This applies to the whole os.

At least someone out in the team actually knows how people use their devices and what kind of stuff they need. Getting Steve on the payroll was the best move for Samsung's dev team

Default Firefox for android has the stylish addon.

Just install a global dark theme and it obviously leaves images alone.

The circle is complete.

I installed Boat Browser. It has a 'night mode' setting. Besides that, it's a very fast browser also for 'normal' daytime use. It's available for free on the Google Play store.

On unrooted LG Motion on stock browser hit menu then/settings/ then accessability /

Then select "Inverted Rendering “.

Not sure if this is part of Android ICS or just part of LG Menu.

Actually that makes a lot of sense for the Samsung AMOLED devices, simply because AMOLED screens consume much less power with dark and black colours, than when showing bright whites, e.g. most websites.
