I really love the features of the site, however the brown tones and edge gradients give me nausea. Could you switch to white/gray/black backgrounds with color only used as a flourish?

Thanks for a really great resource!

cant imagine caniuse in other colors.

kyle you should check out http://userstyles.org/

I like caniuse.com as is, I won't meddle with colours.

If the site itself was checked into this repo, then we could suggest changes to the css stylesheet that others could test, and maybe even develop alternative skins that users could choose :)

Renamed this issue to something less trollish, as of course design is rather subjective.

I agree there's plenty of improvements that could be made, personally I too prefer to keep the color scheme close to what it is now. There's actually been some new design suggestions sent to me recently, so I'm definitely considering it.

Including the site's markup and code may be something that'll come in the future, but for now I'd just like to focus on the data.

Egeste is trolling me, not the project or you.

I didn't mean to insult your design, I'm only making an esthetic observation about the colors and style treatments. Personally, I prefer less design rather than more on the websites I use, and I have restyled some apps (that I find repulsive or unusable) with browser plugins. If you published the code for the site, I would be happy to do some pull requests. Actions > words.
