Well?

Light theme here, dark just seems too jarring after browsing other sites/tabs and you come back and its almost shocking.

dark all the way, much easier on the eyes, especially when I'm reading on the bed before sleep.

How do the two correlate?

At work I have a chrome plugin to turn websites to a dark theme.

Anyways, I like my website like I like my women, dark.

Dark. I wish everything had a dark option because I use it wherever I can.
Much nicer on my eyes.

I'm in a room with no light sources, aside from that of my monitor. Dark is the only thing I can use in order to stop my eyes bleeding.

I'm pretty much universally dark with software UI's. But forums where a lot of reading is done I prefer light with black text, the way god intended.

Light theme always.
In the evening I use addon to dim the background to gray instead of white.

I know ppl usually say otherwise but I've always found this Dark theme with white text bad for my vision. I keep seeing floating texts even when I close my eyes afterwards.

dark was always jarring for me whenever i tried it. but my new laptop has a weird contrast where i kept passing up quoted posts (with the lime green highlight)

so for the first time in years, dark it is

Most software applications are white or use light colors. If you have an open browser with light GAF it is less noticable that you are slacking than with the dark theme which sticks out like a sore thumb compared to your Word/Excel/Visual Studio etc etc.

One really creepy thing I do is just repeatedly shit on GAF while sarcastically calling it a "top tier gaming forum" so feel free to report me if I keep doing this.

What add on is this?

Does anyone know how to manually manipulate brightness in windows, not your monitor/tv?

I'm on old firefox.
Dark Background and Light Text

For dimming windows brightness look into ur GPU driver settings.
For nvidia it's under 'Adjust desktop color settings'.

I like dark themes, especially ones with OLED blacks.
