This a just a suggestion. . . The whiteness makes the website so bright it stresses the eyes for users like me. Can we have an option to change to a darker theme?

It's kind of what Ars Technica does

I feel this would definitely be a great addition as far as user interface designs go.


I installed this : http://userstyles.org/styles/35345/stackoverflow-dark-w-small-ui-improvements-v2-2

Custom stylesheet for SO. It's dark, but ugly as hell.

  • @GertArnold No. Possibly a preference, I don't like glaringly bright stuff like the SO background. It's just pure white and stressful on the eyes.

  • I can get headaches if there's too much white and the monitor refresh rate slows down enough for me to notice. Not that it would on any good LCD. Jul 13 '12 at 16:55
