Do you use Dark Mode, or not completely dark?

I feel that,

  • Dark mode doesn't have to be black, and it can be too dark
  • Decreasing screen brightness might help, but I may want to fine tune more than that (like less than 10%, but not completely dark) - I find this Chrome extension to help.

GitHub logo darkreader / darkreader

Dark Reader Chrome and Firefox extension

  • I may want Dark mode on PC, but not on Mobile. (Dev.to doesn't allow me to choose that.)
  • I want dark mode, even on a natively light things, like PDF or e-books
    • Luckily, it seems that qpdfview can change paper's color. I changed it to #f5ebb8.
  • I don't like Redshifting.

Dark mode with a grey tint is best. Dracula!!!
Also dev.to allows you to have darkmode on mobile. I downloaded the desktop app and set the dark theme there. It got automatically sync with my mobile.

To be honest, I like light mode everywhere except for my code editor and my terminal
