    So, this isn't of course an issue when working on well lit workplace and/or the connection is fast. But I for one, think that it is really annoying when surfing late at night and a white screen blasts to my face when clicking a link. Of course thats not the case all the time but enough to irritate. So, is there any way I could get a browser to show a black background before the page has loaded? :wtf:

    At least on FireFox you can by using this setting:

    I would also recommend the use of GoogleBlack Addon for FireFox.

    He want's to use Opera obviously, I see no need to try push him in any other direction when he is happy with what he has, he is simply wanting help finding a right skin for his software, not advice on which is better for his situation.
