re: Why do people switch to the dark theme as soon as they start programming? VIEW POST

  1. Better syntax highlighting contrast
  2. Better selection of syntax highlighting themes
  3. Easier on the eyes (bright = strain)
  4. Less jarring if surrounding area isn't well lit. Bias lighting can help fix this for those who prefer light mode.

As an added benefit. On OLED displays (ex mobile) dark mode can greatly reduce power consumption.
