Idea: You could get opera and apply a personal style sheet that ignore
the various distinctions between particular colours, you'd have to
write the css code yourself but it might be more reliable in the long run.

Alternatively someone may have already done it.

The other option is a program that makes windows itself act colorblind ?

That's soooo annoying isn't it, 20 seconds just to change the
background colour.....
