    Perfect! I actually prefer darker themes. Way easier on the eyes. So I try and use them on every site I visit often.

    Thanks Jack! I will defiantly be using this. :)

    I wonder why all those sites in internet don't have this kinda dark theme. It's actually good for our eyes and implicitly saves electricity.
    When I create the next site, i'm gonna create a dark theme for it too.





    ** electricity is saved because white throws a lot of brightness and needs more power.
    black is more subtle and needs absence of that much illumination or power.


    Is there any link of psychology of the person with the preference for light or dark theme?
    Is there any research in this area?
    Expecting some psychological links.

    Incorrect. The power consumption of an LCD screen depends entirely on the intensity (brightness output) of the backlight, if you want to save power on your laptop, changing to the black-theme will not help, in fact you will probably use more power by turning up the screen brightness (the brightness of the backlight) in order to see the writing more clearly, thus using more power ;)

    Colour is important when talking about power consumption of OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode), these are used on smartphones (for example some Samsung smartphones use this technology), so if you're browsing with a smartphone (which has an OLED screen), switching to the dark theme WILL save you battery life by decreasing power consumption.

    In fact on OLED displays, the arrangement and colour of the OLEDs is a critical factor when reducing power consumption, so it's entirely possible that the configuration of the OLEDs on your smartphone's display has been one of the things optimised when you get a new smartphone with 70% more battery life. This would show up as subtle differences in colour ;)

    Sorry, but couldn't resist the correction (I work as a lighting engineer) ;)

    I've made the switch and so far so good, it does seem a lot easier on the eyes and as I've just joined I haven't had time to get hooked on the light. I think I belong on the dark side. :)
