I am older and my eyes aren't what they used to be. Does anyone have contact details for the person (no doubt a millenial) who is responsible for the trend towards grey backgrounds and slightly different grey text? I would like to make a suitable sacrifice to him or her so that this punishment is remitted.
I recently bought a new 27" monitor (for 2nd screen). Was looking at 4k models - a quite good one was on a very good special, almost bought it. Then realised my current 25" 2K was a bit of a strain when I'm tired, so for $100 less I got the equivalent spec 27" 2K. (Very nice.) Why buy a 4K just to scale the damn thing back up 200% or more?
So what I'm saying is being a bit oldermuch wiser why pay more for the likes of 4K screens and super-hi-res phones with giga-pixel lenses when you've only got at best 2K eyes.
More money for the kids inheritancekidding, meant quality food, drink, even furniture etc.
There are many web site I just won't read, because they are too hard. It's the same problem as having very small print.
I agree, easier to go elsewhere, but if you absolutely, positively have to read the text on that website, select the text. They tend to forget to style that use case, so it gets left at the default white on blue... viola.. readability
First of all, it would be better to sacrifice him or her, not to him or her.
Second, this reminds me of why I quit trying to read "Wired" back when magazines were a thing.
Yellow font on white, gray on grey, artsy-fonts in 3 point fonts... when folks get so artsy and ignore readability, I'm not going to fight to read their magazine/website/app. The probability that someone that stupid in presentation of information is actually going to have something I need to know approaches zero pretty darn fast.
android studio is the worst out of the box so far I've used. took me forever to find a decent theme with good contrast. my dyslexia isn't as bad with dark backgrounds and light text, like the visual studio dark theme seems to work well.
too many editors are grayish on grayish, it's pretty but causes way too much eye strain.
