Re: How many people prefer dark backgrounds over white ones

Jan 7, 2007
yeah i do find it very hard to do things that look good with a white background, apple does it well, but i dont like much else....maybe a white background, but colored table cells, so it isnt blinding.

but i am very good at keeping image file sizes and load times down. its very simple to just use a 1 pixel wide image file to fill a menu bar, or for a border a 1x3 pixel image file that makes the border looks very good, but takes like a microsecond to load the thing.

ive looked at very high end sites, that use entire full 3x600 pixel image files for a border, that is the same solid stripes all the way down

At first, I didn't like the new dark background, but now I like it better than the original white background.

Just saw that thread about the nintendo forums, and since i do a little bit of html, some of which others see alot, i wanna know which you guys all prefer.

Dark backgrounds with light text, or light backgrounds with dark text.

I personally think it is much easier on the eyes, as there is alot less light comign from a page with a dark background, making it easier to see the light letters that stand out.

i feel the a light background can sometimes flare out the dark text, and make it harder to see it
