Stylish 1.0.7

Wednesday, November 11, 2009 ·



Restyle the web with Stylish, a user styles manager. Stylish lets you easily install themes and skins for Google, Facebook, YouTube, Orkut, and many, many other sites. You can even customize Firefox and other programs themselves.

User styles are pieces of code that affect the way websites and the interface of certain programs look and feel. User styles can do things like remove ads, provide a different colour scheme, and change fonts.
Programs that support user styles

Mozilla-based programs like Firefox and Thunderbird can use Stylish to manage their user styles. This is the recommended way to use user styles. When used in Mozilla-based programs, user styles can also affect the program's user interface.

Mozilla-based programs also provide built-in support for user styles with the userContent.css and userChrome.css files. There is no user interface to these files, so managing multiple user styles is difficult. Additionally, you must restart the program every time you add, change, or remove user styles. This is why Stylish is recommended.

Other web browsers such as Internet Explorer and Opera support user styles, but do not have interfaces for them either. They do not allow user styles to change the program user interface.
How user styles are different than user scripts.




User styles exist mainly to change the way things look. They are written with CSS, the same language that web sites use to control their appearance. Most browsers allow for user styles out of the box (with varying degrees of ease).

User scripts exist mainly to change the way things act. They are written with JavaScript, the same languages that web sites use to create certain dynamic behaviours. Most browsers do not allow for user scripts out of the box. Greasemonkey is a well-known extension that adds user script support to programs.

There exists a fair bit of overlap between user scripts and user styles. Some things can be accomplished with either method. User styles can change the user interface in Mozilla-based programs such as Firefox and Thunderbird, while user scripts cannot. User scripts can add behaviour to web sites, while user styles cannot. In general, it is recommended that if something can be done with user styles instead of user scripts, it should be done with user styles instead of user scripts. This is because user scripts can cause a site to flicker, as they have to wait for sites to load completely before firing, while user styles are not under this restriction. User styles are also generally easier to write.
Where to find user styles

The largest collection of user styles is available on userstyles.org.
User style security concerns

User styles can cause security problems because they can contain XBL bindings, which can contain executable code. Styles posted on userstyles.org are not allowed to define XBL bindings.

User styles can cause hangs at application startup if they contain @imports to servers that are slow to respond. Styles posted on userstyles.org are not allowed to use @import statements.

User styles can change websites so much that what you do on them may be misleading. For example, they could move another field on top of a log in field, which could potentially lead you to submit your login details to another place. Generally, this is unlikely to lead to a security issue, but it is possible.
