GitHub Windows Edition: User style transforming GitHub into Windows 9x

Install with Stylus Install with Stylish Install with TamperMonkey

CssGitHubWindows is a user style which transforms GitHub's pages into a GUI resembling Windows 9x. All modern browsers should be supported.

NOTE: the style is in alpha development stage. Only some parts of the website have been fully transformed.

Features

  • Almost pixel-perfect reproduction of buttons, tabs, separators, groups, edit boxes, list boxes, tooltips, windows.
  • Focus rectangles, text selection styles and other elements adjusted where possible.
  • Some icons changed into icons from Windows 9x.
  • Some UI has been transformed, for example repository stats are displayed as a shell list box and various group boxes have been titled.

Install

If you're using Firefox or Chrome, you can use Stylus extension to apply the style. Stylus is free, open-source and the most feature-full extension.

Stylish is an older alternative which is no longer available, but it has been more popular. If you still have it installed, you can apply the user style using it, however you're strongly advised to migrate to Stylus as Stylish has been removed from browser extension stores for violating user privacy.

If you're using Edge, you can use TamperMonkey to install the user style as a user script.

If your browser is neither of the browsers mentioned above, please refer to online guides, it gets more complicated.

Known issues

  • Default margins of some controls like buttons has been changed. If GitHub uses pixel sizes for buttons, they may be cut off by a few pixels.
  • Due to tooltips being children of controls, they change full control size, so focus borders may be displayed incorrectly.
