    The highlight colors should be a continuum of bright colors to dark colors (for example from bright green to dark green), so more important parts of a webpage can be highlighted by darker colors.

    For Chrome users, you can change the default highlight color of the Diigo extension by modifying its 'diigolet.js' file, which is located at C:\Users\your_username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\oojbgadfejifecebmdnhhkbhdjaphole\1.6.9_0\js\content
    (in Win7).

    Assume you want to change the default highlight color to green, then you can do the following:
    0. Close your Chrome;
    1. Open the 'diigolet.js' file, and search for "yellow selected". Find it and change it to "yellow"; then find the class="green" in nearby, and change it to class="green selected".
    2. Find id="diigolet-panel-highlightIcon" class="yellow", then change the class="yellow" to class="green".
    3. Find penColor:"yellow" and change it to penColor:"green".
    4. Open your Chrome, and now the Diigo default highlight color should be green.
