    Apologies for not googling (I thought someone in this thread could answer it as there will be a lot of interested people here) – what is it about dark themes that make them so popular? I don't really understand how it has become an almost must-have feature for applications. Help me understand!

      This is really vast topic to discuss. In appropriate conditions 'inverted' 'dark mode' interfaces ARE LIKELY to create less strain on the eyes while working with them for long periods of time.

      I prefer viewing a darker UI because it's easier for me to read.

      Dark applications are much less straining to read in low-light. I don't want every application to be dark, but I do appreciate it for applications I spend a lot of time in.

      After using IA Writer's Night Mode, it's hard to go back to Google Docs.
