Stylus is a user style manager, a browser extension for changing the look and feel of pages.


Stylus was forked from Stylish for Chrome in 2017[1][2] after Stylish was bought by the analytics company SimilarWeb.[3] The initial objective was to "remove any and all analytics, and return to a more user-friendly UI."[4] It restored the user interface of Stylish 1.5.2[5][2] and removed Google Analytics.[1][2]


Martin Brinkmann reported in May 2017 that "Stylus works as expected".[2] As of December 2020, Stylus had more than 400,000 users on Google Chrome and nearly 70,000 users on Firefox.[6][7] At that same time, it had an average rating of 4.6 stars on the Chrome Web Store and 4.5 stars on Firefox Add-ons.[6][7]
