There MUST be a way! ! ! ! ! ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have very bad eyesight due to the "death" of the retina in one eye, while the other was saved after six surgeries, etc. This software is absolutely wonderful in that it allows me to set up the colors and text so they do not strain my eyes, give me headaches and just generally cause me great difficulty. I can get by without FF upgrade to ver. 4 etc., but I cannot go without AnyColor. There must be some way to either have the author work on this to bring it up to ver. 4, or to release the source so we can fix it, or whatever. Perhaps if a donation was solicited, to make it worth the programmers time and effort, etc. Isn't there any way to keep this software up to FF version levels? I have looked to find something like this for so long..... PLEASE, help me be able to program and develop other software and hardware products by maintaining anycolor, or releasing the source for others to do so, OK? Thank you, sincerely, from the bottom of my heart.

burns up too much CPU Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I wrote this review about an earlier version which did not work too well with my "old" single core CPU, and so I gave it a poor review. The new version of this is much better in every way, and it runs well on my systems, which I have upgraded to new dual core uP's and more memory, etc. This is a wonderful product now and I don't know how I will get by without it, or something like it, to fix FF so my eyes don't begin burning, aching, and blurring after only a few minutes of viewing the screen. The new version is worth every effort to keep it up with FF4 and so on. LDH
This add-on is a good idea, and it does work as described. However, when I try it on my XP based Athlon 2GHz 2G Asus MB system, it chews up CPU cycles like crazy. I don't have the greatest computer right now; I suspect if I had a new Core 2 or Quad CPU, more memory and memory speed, it may work better, but for my older machine I can't use it. Between this and Firefox, my computer is at least 5 times slower; browsing the internet, even downloading, becomes so tedious, it isn't worth it. I had to remove this from my system to get the "performance" back up to a usable level.
