Discussion on: Why Good Syntax Highlighting is Important

Personally, I find color schemes with such colors as in the first example quite toxic and unpleasant to my eyes. It's quite subjective, but I would prefer JetBrains' Darcula theme because of aesthetic and softness, and I don't experience any issues with distinguishing syntax elements, it feels okay!

That's perfectly fine. Personally I like the first one because I can match the syntax with the property faster, it really is personal preference, but picking syntax highlighting that is suited to your programming is always more efficient.
