CodePen probably won't work great in this browser. We generally only support the major desktop browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Edge. Use this one at your own risk! If you're looking to test things, try looking at Pens/Projects in Debug View.

There's some cool glitchy text effects on CodePen, but some have draw backs, like needing black backgrounds, or heavy use of blend modes.

This version is two of the better methods merged together, from Justin and Lucas Bebber, with some added stuff from me. Mostly the glow and getting it so it works on any colored background.

At some point I'd like to add some scan lines or noise. Dirk Weber's approach has a bit of that going on.

But I'll save that for another day.
