Is Dark Mode Such A Good Idea?:
I’ve decided to stop using dark mode across all of my devices, because research suggests that going to the dark side ain’t all that.
As has been pointed out, there is research that shows the inverse is also true. I am firmly team light, with certain exceptions, because I prefer reading dark text on light background. I find the reverse very jarrring and breaks my flow of reading.
Exceptions: When working on photos, I prefer dark UI because the contrast between image and background is more pronounced and makes me judge the colour and highlights separation better.
