CNET Editors' review

If you've ever wished you had more control over the appearance of your favorite Web sites, Stylish is here to make your dreams come true. This Chrome extension lets users install custom styles for a wide variety of sites, changing the way the sites appear in the browser. Whether you want to jazz up Facebook or make CNN easier to read, Stylish has styles for those and many other sites.

Like most Chrome extensions, Stylish installed without issues. To find styles to install we went to userstyles.org, where we were able to search for styles by site. We selected a few to try out, installed them, and then experimented with the Stylish extension. Whenever we navigated to a site for which we'd installed Stylish styles, the extension's icon displayed a small number indicating how many styles were active. Clicking on the icon let us enable, disable, and delete styles. Users who know how to are welcome to customize a style's code to tweak its appearance, but coding knowledge is by no means a requirement for this extension; kids, grandmas, and everyone in between should be able use most of Stylish's features with no problems. The quality and purpose of styles varies widely from site to site, with some styles seeking to eliminate advertising and provide more streamlined interfaces, and others aiming to add color and pizzazz. Fortunately, Stylish makes it extremely easy to try styles on for size, and it's no trouble at all to install a style, decide you don't like it, and then get rid of it. Overall, we think that Stylish is a great choice for people who like to customize their Web experience, and we recommend it.

    "Best Add-on to erase Flashing Ads-Speeds your surfing!"

    February 23, 2011  |   By Alabama-Auburn-Rules

    Version: Stylish 0.6

    Pros

    Love Stylish for Yahoo Games! the changing flashiing ads slows game play and creates lag. Love it on Craigslist too! Changes the format, removes ads, nice color add ons to fill your now white blank ad space!
    Use with Firefox;Tools, Add ons,

    Cons

    I have to turn the styles off when at Accuweather add on, and Google Maps...wont display correctly. Other than that, disabling Stylish is easy, icon right on browser window, "Turn off all Styles". Or Search for styles for this site, any site you go!

    Summary

    A definate add on to have for Yahoo game players, eliminates the advertisements that cause lag in game play because it does not take up so much processing speed without the flashing ads. Computer runs faster. Then fill the blank ad space with nice colors and other formats designed by clicking the S add on, and "find styles for this site", then install. Never any problems with it, if you dont like it, delete it, or just uncheck it on the drop down. Big thumbs UP!
