Stack Overflow (and other sites in Stack Exchange network) often looks blurred with latest Chrome and Dark Reader extension. This is caused by #hlogo a element. which has text-indent: -999999em;. If the indent is removed, or is not so large (e.g. -99999em) the issue is gone. Please, do not use text-indent: -999999em; to help Dark Reader users use Stack Exchange.

Chromium issue: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=660310

Some pages to demonstrate the bug (open with Dark Reader enabled): D3- multiple onclick events Force SSH to use a specific shell

    I'd hesitate to characterize an issue with a personalized CSS a "bug". – ale Jan 19 '17 at 13:18
  • @ale Actually this is a Chrome bug, but affects users who's eyes can't stand blinding white Stack Exchange design. You can call it a "bug" or "feature", but somebody has put that -99999em indent, and anyway this should be fixed. – Alexander Shutau Jan 19 '17 at 13:27

  • Try removing it (as you can in the developer tools). As you will see, it is there for a reason. – Oded Jan 19 '17 at 20:30
  • Can you confirm if this is happening in a beta version of Chrome or the current stable version? – Oded Jan 19 '17 at 20:31
  • @Oded It seems to happen since Chrome 55, it used to be Canary in October, but now it's a Stable version. I see that this small fix requires too much effort for you, so I can simply add a fix into Dark Reader config for Stack Exchange domains, but there are at least 7 other extensions, that use filters for creating dark themes (about 1,000,000 users in total) that don't offer per-site fixes. – Alexander Shutau Jan 20 '17 at 7:57
  • @Oded I have fixed it in Dark Reader, I've set up -256em and the blur disappeared github.com/alexanderby/darkreader/blob/master/src/config/… – Alexander Shutau Jan 20 '17 at 8:34
