Grey Font color(s)

Just out of curiosity … why are a majority of web sites starting to use grey (gray) fonts in their web pages??
There are a lot of people out here that are experiencing eye problems that makes it almost impossible to read grey (gray) fonts.
I have designed my own websites and always tried to make all fonts visible for everyone.
Thanks for your time …

Because a hard contrast (black on white) is actually more stressful for the eyes than a little less contrast.
Extcloud ships a high contrast theme though if you have troubles reading the text :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks for the quick reply … there is a “quick fix” just by highlighting the fonts in question :sunglasses:
