I’ve Finally Found A Media Query for E-Ink Devices and It Doesn’t Work


@media(monochrome) of course!

I was looking for this to target e-ink displays like Kindles and my Boox Poke 5, mostly to make smaller images for such devices like how Low Tech Website, a website which runs on solar power, does it.

I tried Steph’s Monochrome Media demo on my Poke 5 and it didn’t work using NeoBrowser, a Chrome rebranding. Taking a screenshot, it was in full color though I’m not sure that means much.

Actual Chrome and Firefox Mobile didn’t support this either.
