Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Larger suggestions/Dark mode/Proposal

Other languages:
  • Problem: Wikipedia's bright themes/skins are difficult on reader's eyes.
  • Proposed solution: Add a light-on-dark color scheme; toggleable by either the user interface or by the user's browser preference.
  • Who would benefit: The average reader
  • More comments: This was ranked the #2 wish on 2019's Wishlist Survey. While there were internal planning conflicts, hopefully those have resolved in the last two years so that New Vector can get dark mode. The most popular websites, web browsers, and operating systems, offer built-in support for a dark/night mode without hacks or workarounds. This also contributes to site accessibility and user energy savings (on OLED screens).
