Crumbs! I thought my browser had ballsed up this morning until checking this thread. Sadly, back to the dark side for me after trying out “burned into retinas” mode for a few minutes. I’m clearly getting old. Funny in a way as most other forums I use have a similar theme to the light side; maybe I’m just too used to the dark side here. But as others have said, it’s great to have a choice, so thank you, Jay.
One thing that looks odd in either mode (but stands out more in the dark side) is the presence of new double-arrow buttons in the thread path near the top of the screen. These buttons don’t seem to do anything when clicked, but they obliterate the end of each word.
