Dark mode is harder to read, and a lot less "normal" for me
FTFY

This is a very subjective topic, that might feel totally different for each person.

I have read (and still read) a lot of paper books, but I prefer black on light beige instead of black on pure white.

And for sometimes is dark mode more pleasant / relaxing for me at PC.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
