Move your static CSS from Stylish to Dark Reader
Robert Hearton, a software engineer at Stripe, revealed some unwanted functionality in Stylish extension.
In 2017 the extension was acquired by the SimilarWeb, web research company, and since that time it tracks your browsing history. Stylish seems to have been removed from Chrome Web Store and Firefox add-ons.
How to migrate your static CSS
Since version 4.6.0 Dark Reader has support for custom style sheets. Static CSS works faster and requires less resources than dynamic analysis or CSS filters.

- Switch to Static mode.
- Click Edit icon under Static button.
- Paste your CSS code into text block.
- Click Apply.
