    Just wanted to say that using the Dark Reader extension for Chrome really makes the forum look gorgeous, and seasonal too, and more importantly, easier on the eyes (for me at least)!

    No way, no how. Dark is awful.

    Unfortunately, this IS the same mindset where most of the cable/satellite EPG's have gone to...including X1, BOTH satellite providers & other providers... :rolleyes:

    Too dark. I like the yellow / orange glow of familiarity.

    I'm a pretty dark and intense person, so I like it - except for the OD green part. I could not deal with that at all.

    Better for night time hours - no so much during the day. It would be nice if there was a way to have it automatically switch when f.lux switches.

    I get the positive and negative comments people are making. I understand both. A customizable extension like this (you can change up so much and do it by individual site too) is super important for me being on computers so much during the day. I’ve been finding that so much white was almost triggering migraines for me. Dark mode has been a blessing. I totally get that it’s not for every one.

    I have no option. When I hit the edit button my only choice is default

    Bottom of every page. Left side. Below "Home > Forums > …
    Just click on it and you should get four choices. I don't know how it works on mobile devices.

    Me too. I'm using Chrome's built-in feature for it. I think the OP is using an extension but that's no longer needed.

    chrome://flags and search for "dark mode". Select "Enabled". Restart Chrome. Enjoy.

    It's a lot easier on my aging eyes.
