Shards Stack

generates a page background randomly resembling neon shards

The Shards Stack is the sibling of the Nebula Stack. It generates a random background pattern that resembles neon shards.

Demo
This page shows the effect of the Shards Stack with its default settings.

On this page, different colours are set in the stack. The page has little content to make it easier to see what the stack actually does. Reload that page to see the randomness of the stack.

Usage
It's hard to explain what the options do, just play with them until you like the result. Keep in mind that the background will be different each time the page loads. For best results, set the opacity of color 1, color 2 and shade to a low value (like 15-25%).

Need help using it on a non-stacks page? Here’s a tutorial.
Tip: are big parts of your background covered with solid color theme items? My free SetOpacity Stack can usually make them semi-transparent.
Limitations
In Internet Explorer (any version) or when JavaScript is disabled, this stack does not work. As a fallback, a solid color can be set for the background.
Before the script of the stack is fully loaded, the fallback color will also show as background. You may see this for a split second with a very slow Internet connection and/or on pages that are very heavy to load.

Background
This stack is based on vonKristoff’s Shards plugin.
