TBH I had the same initial reaction, and still do when I use the light theme as opposed to the dark. I can't put my finger on it exactly, because every time I think it's "something", I look again and it's not.

TBH, I now think it's because with the dark background, you can easily focus on the white text, and know where you are. On the light theme, there is so much white/light grey in your periphery that it becomes a bit overwhelming and it makes it hard to focus on the thin dark text.
That's pretty much my experience in a nut shell.
Are you dyslexic too?
The clean clear bright side is great... if you can see it!
Are you a broken down old fucker like me too🤣
For me, the dark is just easier to navigate😎

am i mistaken or isn't Nashy Nashy strongly opposed to this particular font 😛
I actually don't know what it is but you're right he hates it with a passion, I think it's Helvetica, Nashy Nashy will respond when he's done not responding.

Yeah. Right up there with Open Sans and a couple of others as The Fonts To Use at the moment.

Edit: Poppins with an s, but yeah.

Not dilsexic but my eyes are rooted from 20+ years at staring intently at screens.

Comic Sans is worse than anything.

I kid you not, one time at a conference I was at, there was a Noble Prize winning scientist as the keynote speaker and yep, his slides were in PINK comic sans. I facepalmed and walked out.

I just like the option of switching between the 2. I find I prefer the dark on my phone, but the light on my monitor.

New look is awesome, congrats to all involved in the update. The light/dark option is great. I’ve been trying the light, but my reaction is usually the same...

Accidentally found we have keyboard shortcuts for those too lazy too.
Numbers 1 - 6 operate the menu items, then m , . operate these three on the right;
