I decided to update my blog’s template after using Readability for a few days. I liked the setup that Readability provided so much that when coming to my blog, I noticed that it was very hard to read. The font was small and grey and on a white background, which I thought was OK.

Through using Readability I have discovered that it’s easier (for me at least) to read things when the background is off-white, this kind of manilla color is best for my eyes.

So you should check out Readability, it’s an awesome way to read websites, especially useful for those sites that insist on using 9-point grey font that’s impossible to read :P

I’m currently using the Novel style with medium font and a wide margin.

I’d love to hear what settings work best for any of you out there.
