Please bring back the old dark theme (!!)

  • The new light theme and dark theme are both badly designed. Light is too light, dark is too dark. Why enhancing anything that was good? Please bring back the old dark theme, the one with the black sidebar and light everything else.

  • I agree, i made the same post.

    I was forced to change to the light theme, since in the new dark theme, the differences between the very dark grays and blacks is almost inexistent. I don't have the best monitor, and unless I take my eyes 10 cm from the screen, I cannot distinguish the selected tab from the rest tabs.

    Literally, I changed it because I n longer see which tab is selected.

    Very dark and very flat...

    Please please please, stop changing things that work fine and focus on things that actually need improvement!!!

  • I think the new UI looks pretty good, just that they should've kept the old UI as an option or something.

  • I'm going to say what the thing is like, the truth is that I liked the dark opera version more than the white one, the white one is too white for me and the dark side is beautiful for me, the white that I do not like

  • I would use the dark theme if it was not so hard to read, and so hard to tell which tab is selected. Now both the light and the dark theme are hard to read. It is not an improvement. What is wrong with changing the text colour as well as the background?

  • @concretable Oh what to say, suggest to those of opera, only with that more than enough

  • I did send them a message complaining about that. I actually got back a reply to that one, and they asked for a screenshot. I sent 2 screenshots, one for the dark theme and one for the light theme to show how bad the contrast is. I guess I did not convince them, since they have done nothing about it.

  • @concretable OK I was going to do that but you dalantastes: D but I hope they fix it, it should be stressed that they do not warn, you have to try the opera test version or wait until it comes out in the official opera

  • I agree, they went overboard with it.
    My biggest problem is the color (and design) of the menu which shows up with right clicking on something. It could be more grayish, this full black background takes me back to win98.

    to me too, the background is terrible.

  • @zerofok
    The contrast is bad enough now. Making the background lighter without doing something to make the text a lot lighter would make it even worse.
