I want to start off and say that I'm not a developer so I have very limited knowledge in how difficult this would be to implement
dark modes have been gaining a lot of momentum recently and I think it could have a ton of benefit if there was an option to browse NS late night without a blinding mostly white interface. I recently installed Mojave on my Mac and dark mode system wide in macOS is a very welcomed option. Wish they would add it system wide on iOS too
Both the desktop website and the mobile app could benefit from this, and the app especially for people browsing it on phones with OLED screens. Depending on how dense the content is, having white text on a pure black #000000 background can use ~50-60% less battery power vs black text on white.
I understand branding is big and NS's brand has been black/orange/mainly white for the decade I've been a member, so I wouldn't suggest making dark mode the default, but having an option would be much appreciated. Thoughts?
