I think the heapoverflow.ml font is hard on the eyes and so is the default dark theme. Does anyone else agree?

Apologies for posting something from Medium, but it’s probably because of the halation effect. https://medium.com/the-partnered-pen/writers-stop-using-dark-backgrounds-it-triggers-the-halation-effect-36875445aca4 From my understanding this means that (white) font edges bleed into the (dark) background making them appear thinner than they already are. Thus a thin monospace font will appear even thinner and hard to read (if you’re extensively reading I guess).

Thanks that was an interesting article. I think I agree. I tend to not use dark themes.

I had a OLED smartphone before, I did like it there. Dunno if that plays into it.

I definitely feel like there are ways around that and staring at white backgrounds is extremely fatiguing to my eyes.

Interesting. Reading on a screen is a little bit of effort, but I vastly prefer light background and dark text to the other way around.

Its not the “effort” its just that my eyes feel sore after staring at a monitor too long, and white backgrounds create eye soreness very quickly.

Are you on a computer all day?

EDIT: I also use a “blue light filter” so I never see actual white even, because it’s unbearable!

I don’t use the website, because I am on feddit :) I guess it’s fine for the moment, if others don’t feel like I do!

what font would you prefer?

EDIT: I figured the monospace font and dark theme would be familiar to most programmers lol

I also figured most people would be “remote viewing” anyway
