Front end developers and designers, increase your contrast

If you have a shiny Mac as a front end developer or designer you will see your webpages in the most beautiful way. Everyone with such a nice display will see your website in the best possible way.

But there are others. People with less great screens, people who use a display with a VGA-cable or bad splitter. Those people will see your website not is the most beautiful way.

So before you push your website to production, please go into your System Preferences > Accessibilty > Display and slide the Display contrast a little to the right. I use this setting:

System Preferences Accessibility

On behalf of the not-so-great-display-people,
