	Here is a quick browser tip for firefox. About a year ago I stumbled across 
'NightShift - Eyecare' that did a fantastic job at basically inverting the way 
firefox rendered pages darkening the display and providing immediate relief to 
tired eyes:

NightShift - Eyecare (good title)

	It's not for all pages, but when you need to read a page or two of text and you 
don't want to stare into a bright display, it is worth its weight in gold.

	Last night, I had to rebuild my firefox install (moving ~/.mozilla 
~/.mozilla-sav and starting new). Looking for nightshift again (not remembering 
what it was called and searing 'night' on userstyles.org, I stumbled across 
'Midnight Surfing' and gave it a try. Wow, it worked better in some 
circumstances. That was cool, so I thought I would pass it along to the list:

Midnight Surfing

	It can be a great tool to stick in your toolbox for the right circumstance and 
since stylish integrates nicely with FF providing the little status bar on/off 
dialog for the styles, you can flip it on/off with no effort at all.

	Install stylish before going to userstyles.org and you can then just load the 
styles into firefox. Get stylish at the mozilla addons site:
