I will do it, not exactly sure about how you'll implement it, I assume a cookie and a little js to read/set cookie and a toggle in html for users that lurk without an account, and an account setting instead of cookie for others?
Looks like XenForo will have some kind of "template variants" feature for dark mode. We'll know more in a few weeks

Before Rark Reader I've written custom CSS and used Greasemonkey to apply that CSS and make DOM changes for websites I frequented and didn't like the look or layout of.
Then you are our guy :)

No. It's mental disorders who force bright modes:
• Brighter displays consume more energy than darker ones.
• Brighter displays require more ambient lighting than darker ones, meaning you have your lights brighter indoors, meaning you spend more earth's resources.
• Leaving your clientelle no option is by definition a malicious doing.

Also all these extensions and plug-ins are just dirty hacks. Every reasonable person doesn't feast on dirty hacks if possible. You smashing OP with "just enable Dark Reader" are not helping them. It's plain toxicity.

Hope I could help W1zz to make it work. Unfortunately, I dunno how to code.
I use my monitors Reader option to tamp down the bright whites and makes all day reading possible. I wonder if OP has the same option on their monitor.

Sorry for resurrecting this thread, but I have something related to share, and someone might find it useful.

Since Dark Reader is not an option for me anymore, I was in search for an alternative. It's slowing down almost all webpages considerably, not just by loading, but also scrolling.
So for all Firefox users out there that share the same sentiment:


It's much faster, open source and fully customizable. Cheers.
