    I Downloaded Dark Reader extension for google chrome search results pages. I works perfect. So far I've only needed to disable it for TheXvid. Its not needed here and only makes TheXvid load pages flash white just as Linus explained. Thank you Linus and Group.

    I've been using dark mode for a few hours and I'm already annoyed by the lack of contrast. The number of times I have to select text to be able to read it is beyond annoying.

    Bc There are no comments or I just doesn't saw any. Where did you get that google docs dark mode. I was searching for one like that, but that one I found has a wierd color frame glitches.

  • Flufflebut

    Dark mode is better b/c:
    1) less screen lit = a lil less battery usage
    2) light in darkness is more easily detectable than the reverse. This is part of why biologists love fluorescent microscopy to detect minute ppms in solutions, and physicists use this fact too in their own measurements. Eyes are remarkably good at even detecting a handful of photons in the dark.
    3) more options is always great
    4) the cons listed in the video such as overusing screens being bad for eyesight, also apply for black on white screens, so are a null points for comparisons

    Actually it's one reason I cant use iPhones, not sure if they do now but 10 years ago Windows Phone had it sorted. When windows phone went south changed to android as it does dark mode well.... just means I'm used to this now so apple won't get a look in. Also OSX only just got around to it so will stay with windows.

    I'm dyslexic, pretty much a godsend to have white on black.

    fun fact: dyslexic people have an easier time reading with white text on black background. I learned this from the very credible source of the Percy Jackson series when I read it like 10 years ago.

    I even have dark mode turned on my glasses to automatically darken outside.

    Dark mode is easier to read text. On Foxit Reader, I use a yellow legal pad color to read text, and I can read and skim text faster.

    Win 7 use high contrast setup the way you like it, and have a win 95 look if I need white background, including explorer. I setup a dark theme with grey font to take off the edge instead of white, @ night I have a lamp on for some light to reduce eye strain. Looks like that PS dark mode.
    I tried win 10 and not being able to play with my system fonts among other things turned me off, not to mention lots of apps that I have collected from 1995 and up wouldn't run on win 10.
    The only thing that I did like about win10 was being able to pause file transfers, and in picture viewer your animated gifs would work. But I will stick with win 7.
    I remember window blinds, it could be a resource hog at times.
    They should just make a os for andriod, window , linux, with all the proper darking.

    I personally prefer not to enable dark mode, it is great especially in the dark, but when you have lighting around you it is unnecessary.

    If you have a monitor like mine with failing capacitors (bad enough as-is) then having dark mode enabled makes it quicker to start up from a cold boot for some reason (since it's an LCD display which should always be using the same power for the backlight).
