Dark themes are becoming more popular. On some devices, they can even save battery power - somewhere between 15% and 60% if developed correctly. It all depends on what type of display your devices have — only devices with OLED displays can benefit from the power-saving, but these screens are becoming more common on mobile devices.
Dark themes are also moving on to the desktop devices. Most modern browsers now support a dark theme option and even Windows 10 will support dark themes as standard.

Genealogy - Best Practice
Sunday 12 April 2020
Another week of lockdown and more time on my hands. This week I have been working on house-keeping my GEDCOM file. With help from GEDCOM Validator, I have been able to strip out errors from my family tree data file. A lot of the errors were caused by my own input and invalid entry types. Now we have a valid GEDCOM that meets the Best Practice standards. I'm still looking for the best method of naming media files (photographs, certificates, census returns, etc) that allows for groups of individuals. Most guidance is for single photographs which is not much help really.
