You ask why people would want to use monochrome.
1.  Economy it may be the only monitor someone has
2.  Some colour blind people may view a site in monochrome as it can help
some of them distinguish between the designers bad choices.

I understand that you may want to use aureal browser when you can't see the
screen. But if you can see your screen: why, for the heaven's sake, we
use monochrome?
IIRC, "color increases readability by 78%"
