Personal news' view – Background dark solid color

  • Bright backgrounds are obviously well known to fill doctors' list of customers constantly full, as such backgrounds are indeed so eyes consuming which is no trivial case. Expectedly current request concerns the need for a solid dark color as an alternative option so that current reading won't be aggressive any more. That is only one of the so many ways to deserve a qualification closest to 'modern' regarding the very web browser Opera.

  • @vickanna I like this idea. A dark mode for reading news would be good for at night. I'll bring this up with our UI team. Any other thoughts on this? Feel free to chime in.

  • @jbrandon. An option titled 'Enable dark theme' has been made available –path: opera://settings/ , under category Basic, subcategory Appearance–. Yet targets to which that function applies are without doubt on purpose made restrictive as that observation cannot possibly be an issue. Those built-in pages Bookmarks, Personal News, History, Extensions, have been left in the UI team process out of consideration, and their readability illustrate still what an unfriendly eye-destructive over-lighted theme can be. Title 'Enable dark theme', comes along with no particular mention; therefore its application is meant to be global, while it currently applies only to the built-in page Settings.
