    Default DId they do away with "Inverted Screen Rendering" on 4.2.2?

    I had a GS2 running 4.1.2 and loved the feature to turn the browser background black with white text (Inverted Screen) for reading web pages at night in the dark. Now I just got a GS4 running 4.2.2 and cannot find the option on the browser. Is it somewhere else or did they do away with it?

    Isn't that a feature in the settings of the phone?

    Ps, Firefox had a reading mode, which turns text intensive page into a reformatted text page, it can have a pure black background in that mode.

    I think that may be in the accessibility settings.

    That's where it used to be on the GS2 running 4.1.2 ... But the option is not there on the GS4 running 4.2.2!

    I looked thru all the menus and options on the browser to no avail

    I can't check in 4.2.2 because my phone's on 4.3; in Verizon's version of 4.3, the setting is in Settings - My device - Accessibility - Vision, and is called "Negative colors," stated to reverse the colors of screen. The same setting shows up in the Verizon user manual I downloaded when I got the phone, before the update to Android 4.3, but that manual may have been based on 4.1.2 and not 4.2.2, I'm not sure. It also may depend on the carrier whether it's available, as with other settings.

    OK I followed your path and version 4.2.2 follows the same settings you posted, but this setting turns the whole phone into reverse rendering or "Negative Colors" which is ackward and cumbersome since most menus and screens are dark with bright text. But I guess it will do! thank for helping STSVA

    They seem to have taken this out of 4.4 on moto x.

    I am really tired of the linux/android developers that think a clean interface is a crippled one. They don't get that a gui is to avoid writing a manual and tech support. What they don't remove from the gui, becomes an easter egg hunt for some odd place to tap to bring up some option. Wasting dozens of hours a month, playing easter egg hunt and googling to do things a good interface would allow any 20 minute new user.

    The amoled is useless in some conditions without this. Need this in spreadsheets, on homescreen etc. under certain circs.

    Agreed. Our digital overlords are mean.
