    Hello guys,
    Today we would like to announce a new theme for MalwareTips. This theme is the "dark" equivalent of the default theme, and it's optional to use.

    To use this MalwareTips Dark theme, you can use any of these options:


    1. Use the link the footer. In the footer of the default theme, you will see a "MalwareTips Style" link. Click on this link to bring up the Style Chooser.

    When the Style Choose will pop-up, select the theme that you will like to use. (MalwareTips Dark, in this case).
    Note. If you wish to revert to the default theme, a "MalwareTips Dark" link will be in the footer of the MalwareTips Dark theme.

    2. You can also select the style that you want to see MalwareTips by using the Preferences menu, from your profile settings.
    To do this, just hover over your username in the Navigation bar, and select Preferences.

    In the "Browser Preferences" window, select the style that you would like to use.

    That's it. The new theme comes with some new features that I'm sure you will notice, and we are still doing some little tweaks. : )


    Enjoy.

    The Dark Theme is easier on the eye's for sure, once they adjust. Looks good!

    But the Dark theme has a floating navigation bar...... Come to dark sideee ...we have more features.... (I'm kidding....I also use the default version :D)

    The dark version is not for everyone, I'm sure that some users will like more the light theme, while others will go for the dark version....We just wanna it to give you a choice. We will also update the default theme in the next month with some new cool features.. : )

    You should update the logo in light theme to the one you used in dark.

    @Fantasy The MT Banner on the white theme is our default logo, since 2011. :cool:

    @Jack Dark is great for those who prefer a darker theme, but I prefer using the Lighter theme. Nevertheless, great addition.

    Totally agree I can read much easier even in the dark room. With light backgrounds I have to turn on a bright light to keep my eyes from hurting.

    Thanks. :D

    Yes, I loved it from the first time I saw it. The logo was created by @bogdan in 2011....I still like it better than the one from the Dark theme. : )

    I've done a some little esthetic tweaks to the Dark theme, so everything should look good now. Enjoy!

    Very comfortable for the eyes! and looks great. well done

    Edit: I think the links color should be a bit brighter like button's blue color? because its not very clear to see.
