The new styling on the
bottom-share-links elements cannot be read. It has bad colors and ultra-low contrast. Here it is on ELU for example:
First, you cannot have red text on a red background. There simply isn’t enough contrast.
Secondly, that’s just the Facebook part. The Twitter part, which here is shown in mouseover colors, it effectively erased altogether.
Perhaps designers with perfect monitors and perfect lighting with the eyes of a twelve-year-old can read this, but nobody else can. It flies against all web accessibility guidelines. Even a trivial hue comparison "by the numbers" shows that this is egregiously illegible.
And it isn't much better on Stack Overflow either:
Now the blue on red is VIBRATING it's so awful. Third and last, this is gaudy and gross to look at. A
<BLINK>Facebook</BLINK> effect would be less distracting than this is.
This shows that it's not just a problem on one site alone, but everywhere on the network.
Please fix this awfulness.
Here's an image of the weird computed values on one of those elements from Chrome:
I wonder what could be injecting these weirdness on me and not others. Curiouser and curiouser.
