Github "dark mode" header

    I don't like it. It could be just because it's new and I'm not used to it, but I think it's strange for just the header change to rollout before the rest of the design. I also think the links in the header are a bit too dark -- I think the header looks a little bit better with the alpha on those punched up to ~0.85. I'm sure in like 3 days I won't even think about it anymore, though.

      How's it feeling a few days later?

        It still feels out of place, but I definitely have a much less reactionary response to it. I think it works best on pages where there's less blue (PRs/Issues compared to the Dashboard). And I've fully gone the other way on the link opacity, 0.75 feels right. Excited to see what the other changes have in store!
