We were in the middle of a very complex project, and we stumbled on a frankly awful website. It was the single most horrific experience any of us have ever had, and we set out solve this tragedy.

What it does

Our extension's function is simple, yet elegant. It cleans up the excrement that is web design and lets the user browse without having their eyes assaulted by abominable texts.

How I built it

Challenges I ran into

We spent 23 hours and 13 minutes arguing over which font we would use. It was a quest for one font to rule them all. Luckily we settled on Courier New, because it is not only elegant, but easy to read.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

What I learned

We learned how to use our brains to save the world from the tragedy of terrible fonts. I think it is fair to say we learned to believe in ourselves and overcome conflict.

What's next for Text Fixer

We'll probably add the ability to choose your own fonts.
