"At least as ugly as Google News's default appearance." - safariextensions.tumblr.com
8-Bit News is a Safari extension that gives Google News an 8-bit look. Apart from looking cool, 8-Bit News also emphasises the news on the page and removes alternate headlines, "starring", and so on. The only things you see are the headline, a Commodore 64-era picture, a snippet of the story, and links to other news articles about the same topic. To use the extension: download it by clicking the link below. Then, double-click the extension to install it. Test it by visiting Google News.
