Bored Curiosity: What I-A-B Color Scheme Are You Using?

Submitted by: squrlz4ever 3 months ago Lifestyle


Now that Sunny's made it possible for users to choose their color scheme, I'm curious as to who's using what. It's an informal poll!

So how about it? Are you a straitlaced, no-nonsense, black-on-white kinda guy? Or an edgy, prefers-dim-lighting, white-on-black kinda gal? Or maybe you're one of those switches I've heard tell about: Do you change the color scheme to suit the mood and occasion? Chime in below and let us know how you're using the color scheme option. Me? I've been running I-A-B white-on-black. As squirrels go, I'm a bit of a purist.

I actually like the white background, got used to it really quick I guess. But occasionally I'll switch it to the grey, usually late at night.

Black for me.  Shout out to Fancy for cranking that out so quickly!  I knew I loved this place for a reason...

White text on black.  Otherwise its just not IAB !

Now, if we could only fix the chronological order of comments, with oldest at the top . . .

I'd prefer the black, but the eye does not switch for me.

@edgarrizo In the upper left corner of the screen is a little eye, click on it and you can have either black or white.

Black.  So much easier on the eyes.  I was browsing from my phone recently though, which i rarely do, and oddly liked the white there.  On PC though, black most definitely.

I'm going with black because that's what matters to me.  Yeah, I said it.  Black backgrounds matter.  To me.

I didn't even know I could change it.  I'll probably stick with black and white, but I'll check it out now.

@trimble On my Samsung Galaxy 12" tablet, the eye doesn't work with the Dolphin browser, but it works great with Chrome. Maybe try a different browser.

I like this shade of grey as a background.  Much easier on a 3rd shifter's eyes :D

Green. Puce! I WIN!!

Wait, were we playing the game where we just call out random colours?...No, OK, you prefer black background. I get it. But: if it was the random colour game, I would've won. And if you think that's impressive, you ought to see me play knifey-spooney.

You prefer the white backgrounds, huh? That's how you roll? Don't like the backgrounds with the darker complexions? Yeah, I see how it is.


Yeah, that's right. I went there. This is I-A-B, after all.  :)

vive la difference! I use white during the day so it looks like I'm looking at a potentially relevant-to-my-job website. At night/home, I always go OG -- my house it pretty dark after 9pm so the black is easier on the eye. It looks great both ways on mobile. Props to Sunny -- this site's architecture is so lean and effective.

@dragon91 Tried Firefox for a while. I've used Google Chrome on other machines. I still like the IE layout better, and the ease of adjusting it to the way I want it. Maybe because I "grew up" with it, maybe because I'm old. I just find it easier.

Black background.  So much easier on the eyes, and I just like the look overall.

Put me down for "chronolgical order was better before", too.  The scrolling up and down is kind of annoying.

I'm on black(grey). And also for me chronological order was better before.

Now that I've worked out how to do it, I've gone to white on black. Although, it's not a deep black, like before, it's more of a dark grey. I think that this is even easier on the eyes than the solid black that used to be used. I like it. (but I hate reading the comments now....going from bottom to top, unless theres a direct reply, which then runs top to bottom....so you scroll up, then down, then up, then down....I'm getting seasick!)

You know, until you stated it outright, I didn't really notice that it's now a charcoal gray rather than the deep black of before. I agree: It's an improvement. Very easy on the eyes. I also agree with you on comment sorting, BTW. I'm hoping we'll return to the chronological order of before.
