That’s all well and good but change is inevitable and that’s one major reason why we are releasing this as a major version. Besides it will all be done via js and fallback to normals without it so you can simply disable it for your forum.

Also keep in mind with chameleon we can and will have several components in the library that can be easily swapped out eventually so we can easily have both in core but not in the theme 😉

You can always use extensions to enable dark mode, but it definitely looks cooler and more professional when the site has it already enabled. I actually find sites and apps that have it enabled already for their users really caring and innovative. I was trying to add such a feature on my domain a few weeks ago and couldn't do it. It wasn't a big deal anyway as I had to have a Website redesign done on it and add extra layers of security since I had a few DDos attacks that scared me a bit. I had the developer add some cool futures like dark mode in it and it seems to be working quite well

Dark mode settings also make the content on a screen stand out. The images, icons, text and other elements pop out owing to the contrast and help in highlighting the information and matter displayed on your screen. The visual appeal that this mode offers is a big reason why apps like Spotify, Netflix and gaming platform Steam opt for a dark theme in user interfaces.

Sure, and I think it can be done with just CSS.

New news here...

With modern technology this can be done simply with CSS that aligns with the preferences of the operating system in use (I think Quick Install already implemented it), automatically, no extension required.

Which (your ext), by the way, is limited and obsolete.

I repeat, we're talking about source code development here, not extensions.
Any extension of that type is simply obsolete nowadays with modern technology, I can't explain it any better.

I'm not saying it doesn't work, just that it's useless in this context.
