There’s plenty of disagreement and controversy at the moment, so let me stoke things a bit more:

Light Mode is better than Dark Mode (for me)

Here’s why, with some science behind it, too. Yes, I have a justification as well just a preference…

Let’s start with what we know:
The pupil of the eye shrinks when there’s a lot of light and dilates when it’s darker

The question is: how much difference will it make between viewing a screen in dark mode and light mode?

Here’s a very rough, crude experiment (emphasis on “rough” and “crude”, and use of “experiment” is very loose here!)

Details in next toot



@s_gruppetta I’d like to use light mode, but I have eye floaters and it’s really annoying and distracting.

@anmomu92 that’s in part the point of my thread. Different people need different modes, there’s no one size fits all
