Stylus (browser extension)

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