Restore gray color scheme for dark mode in browser extension and web vault
I’m really disappointed with the new dark mode color scheme. It looks heavily out of place in my browser and on many websites (e.g., Reddit dark mode, YouTube, Twitter, etc.) which don’t force specific colors on their users. It looks out of place compared to my OS and most of my other apps too (Steam, VS Code)
If I wanted to use the Nord theme, I would use that! Now the dark theme is just a darker version of the Nord theme.
Nord was there since a long time and it is a light mode color scheme - it’s whitish not gray (unless your monitor is not accurate, I know mine is). There is no grey dark mode color scheme after the latest update, that’s the point of my post.
Agreed the new Dark theme looks too blue, suggest using true neutral greys instead, no color tint at all, which wouldn’t clash as bad with other browser/OS dark themes whether they’re cool or warm tinted.
I opened a Github issue for this and was asked to create a feature request instead.
I totally agree that the new dark theme is blue which makes it stick out like a sore thumb next to other software and websites.
I’ve never understood devs choosing a non-neutral dark theme for their product (looking at you, Github).
It ends up looking out of place with everything else either using black or a shade of gray (and rightfully so, since it’s the only way to make things look decent together).
The explanation given was it was done “to better match across platforms” which I have to wonder what the logic of that is, because in my eyes it achieves the opposite.
It’s akin to some devs making their light theme look yellow, orange, pink (looking at you, Hacker News)
