Brightness 300 cd/m2
contrast ratio 30000:1(dc)

thats for my monitors so i should try lowering it but i just change the colors for some things. Basically whites are really bright and blacks are really dark. Good for movies though.

LOL, maybe a bit to excessive on the blackness of it, but i am curious how you did it or if it is just for Firefox alone feature since I use Opera.

Id like to try a darker gray with black text and or white mixed in still.

Well, there are a lot of addons for FF, like stylish for example, or google minimalist... I don't now about Opera, never used it. About Seven Forums,

I recently switched to Bing, initially it was not nearly up to par but lately it's really coming around. On image searches it kicks gooles butt no question. But even on regular searches I've been finding bing beinging up more relevant links first. So I switched to it, but google is still a backup if I don't find what I wanted in Bing first.

You relaly do have to have a faster machine though Bing loads a lot of stuff and if it's slow it can be annoying to use.

Search Engine ?
Hello, Is there a free, or inexpensive, search engine that will search the text in the documents in all my files, and not just by file name ? In other words, literally searching every text word on PC, wherever it might be, looking for a match. Thanks, Bob

First post here. I am really surprised not to see more discussion of this, and I have not found any sort of acceptable alternative since starting with Windows 7 in March of 2011 I simply do not understand the Windows 7 search engine capabilities. Perhaps the best way to highlight this is with...

win7 search engine
I always use the search engine a lot, and in win7 I can't manage to find out how to search inside files and folders. Need to search for specific strings in textfiles. Is this feature not implemented in win7 or is it just me that can't find it?
