Text gradients can be a useful and visually appealing element of modern UI design, as they can add depth and interest to text and help it stand out on the page. However, it's important to use them sparingly and in a way that complements the overall design of your interface. Overuse of text gradients or using them in a way that is hard to read or not harmonious with the rest of the design can negatively impact the user experience.
In general, it's a good idea to consider the readability and legibility of your text when using gradients or other decorative effects. If the text is difficult to read or understand, it will not matter how visually appealing the gradient is.
Overall, text gradients can be a useful tool in modern UI design when used judiciously and in a way that enhances the user experience.
