Color Contrast

A lot of websites these days are moving towards an Apple-esque everything-white-is-cool or Photoshop-esque everything-charcoal-is-cool color scheme. While that may be esthetically pleasing for casual perusal, it can actually damage your eyesight if the color contrast between font and background color is too similar. One site I use regularly to verify my contrast compliance against the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) standards can be found here.

Web developers, for the sake of all our eyes, please implement proper contrast.
