    Some very neat designs here of a dark theme, perfect for browsing in the dark or the cinema and does not glare in the eyes as much as a white background would. Although wouldn’t it be good if we can switch the background to different colors to suit our mood?

    I am sure I seen this about on the web has this got something to do with a CSS tweak?
