Colorblind Web Page Filter

 Colorblind Google

Colorblindness affects about 7% of the male population, .4% of females. ColourLovers has a great write up on a site called The Colorblind Web Page Filter so you too can experience this genetic anomaly.

The Colorblind web page filter lets you browse a web site and apply any one of 11 different color blind filters to see the page the same as those affected by the type of colorblindness associated with the filter.
