    This may be the most inconsequential question I've ever asked on these forums, and possibly the least important as well. When I originally signed up here in 2012 I didn't have a dark mode extension downloaded to my Google Chrome browser and the site blinded my eyes. It was only until recently that I discovered that the dark mode extension works very well on this website, and slowly I've been regaining my ability to see ever since. So, I prefer the dark theme of this website. Not only is it nicer on my eyes, it's probably better for the TV I use to browse this website. The only time I use light mode is if I'm on my smartphone browsing the site, and hopefully I can change that too soon.

    I answered this question for myself, now it's your turn: Do you prefer the light (default) theme or the dark theme offered by extensions? I'm also adding a third option in case other people have other themes they use while browsing this website.

    By the way, in case anyone is wondering, the Google Chrome extension I use on this website (and others) is called Dark Reader. It's free and offers all kinds of tools to tailor each website to your liking.

    I can't seem to change this website to dark theme. But I do with just about every other site I browse, as it's easier on my eyes. I'm prone to bright light induced migraines.

    Transition lens glasses or sunglasses helps a lot. :)

    I just keep it on default. During the day or bright lighting it doesn't matter. At night or in darker areas I put my phone on a dimmer setting.

    I prefer light default. Reading white print on a black background bothers my eyes.
