Note: This script is NO LONGER WORKING. And it's unlikely I will invest the time to update it. But I will leave it online, for posterity.

Motivation

Up to 2018, theguardian website was celebrated (alongside GitHub) as having one of the most pleasant and calming designs. Designers would sometimes refer to these sites for inspiration.

Sadly, when they decided to relaunch as a tabloid in 2018, the former design was lost. This script is (was) an attempt to bring the old style back to our browsers.

Specifics

Attempts to undo the most glaring changes in The Guardian redesign of January 2018.

Restores the old blue header, the lowercase "theguardian" logo, and the old fonts (with slightly less sharper serifs).

We may add a favicon later....

This is a derivative of coxmichael's userstyle.
