The Google Accessibility team has added a new extension, Color Enhancer, to the Chrome Web Store. For some types of colorblindness, this extension will help you distinguish between the muddied colors you experience on websites. Here's how to use it:

Grab a copy of the Color Enhancer extension for Chrome.

Click the RGB color model button that appears on your Chrome toolbar and perform the initial adjustment setup. This includes selecting which group of stars is the faintest, and then adjusting a slider to make them more visible.

After setup, you can click OK, but you'll still need to check the box next to Enable for the filter to apply to all websites.

This is an easy way to adjust how the Web displays for people with some forms of color blindness. Additionally, it's easier than changing settings on a monitor, which could be inconvenient if it is shared by multiple people.

Any time you want to disable the filter, just click the button and uncheck the box next to Enable.
