@aral Not to spoil the fun, but this strategy is ill-advised. Tons of devices still get artifacts when using filters because your relying on seldom used GPU functions. Especially inverting something inverted produce undesirable effects. It’s okay for like an image or single secondary element, but you risk breaking the experience entirely when doing it to the entire page. Under-powered devices may also run into performance issues when applying filters to the entire page.

@da @aral This approach also seems like something that could be done across the board with a browser extension, which makes me inherently suspicious of the technique -- if it works, why don't people just use an extension?

(I don't use dark mode, so I have no idea what the failure modes are. Useful to hear about the GPU and CPU issues here, and I'm curious to hear more about what the visible artifacts are!)
