Greasmonkey is a very good plug-in for such experiments. So far best
results I had with improving looks of the CLTL. With other sites I think
more would have to be done. I guess I would have to mirror part of a
website in question and try to redesign it to make it more susceptible
to CSS restyling. I'll experiment a bit and hope to post some results
within couple of days.
