Grayscaling your website

A quick solution to convert webpages into black and white using CSS grayscale filter, supported by all major web browsers including MSIE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari. Suitable for making mourning page, paying tribute, & etc.

Demo

Convert the entire page into black & white:

body {
  filter: url("data:image/svg+xml;utf8,<svg xmlns=\'http://www.w3.org/2000/svg\'><filter id=\'grayscale\'><feColorMatrix type=\'matrix\' values=\'0.3333 0.3333 0.3333 0 0 0.3333 0.3333 0.3333 0 0 0.3333 0.3333 0.3333 0 0 0 0 0 1 0\'/></filter></svg>#grayscale");
  filter: gray;
  -webkit-filter: grayscale(1);
}

Convert selected elements into black & white:

.grayscale {
  filter: url("data:image/svg+xml;utf8,<svg xmlns=\'http://www.w3.org/2000/svg\'><filter id=\'grayscale\'><feColorMatrix type=\'matrix\' values=\'0.3333 0.3333 0.3333 0 0 0.3333 0.3333 0.3333 0 0 0.3333 0.3333 0.3333 0 0 0 0 0 1 0\'/></filter></svg>#grayscale");
  filter: gray;
  -webkit-filter: grayscale(1);
}

And add grayscale class to selected HTML elements. E.g.:

<div class="grayscale">
 ...
<div>

Print webpages in black & white:

@media print {
  .grayscale {
    filter: url("data:image/svg+xml;utf8,<svg xmlns=\'http://www.w3.org/2000/svg\'><filter id=\'grayscale\'><feColorMatrix type=\'matrix\' values=\'0.3333 0.3333 0.3333 0 0 0.3333 0.3333 0.3333 0 0 0.3333 0.3333 0.3333 0 0 0 0 0 1 0\'/></filter></svg>#grayscale");
    filter: gray;
    -webkit-filter: grayscale(1);
  }
}
