Dark Userstyle For XDA-Developers.com
Considering how many people feel an overwhelming urge to tweak the aesthetics of their devices, whether that is a mobile home screen or PC desktop, it’s no surprise that the same urge has also extended to the sites that we browse. Although web designers spend huge amounts of time meticulously tweaking the layout of a site and sometimes even offering multiple layouts to choose from (XDA being no exception), as the old saying goes, “You can’t please all the people all the time.”
If you do happen to find yourself with a desperate need to alter the appearance of a site for yourself, you can of course use something such as Stylebot or Stylish. The latter being the preferred choice of XDA Recognized Contributor GermainZ who has created a dark userstyle for the XDA Portal and forums. Composed mainly of black, dark greys, and light blue accents, the aesthetic is not dissimilar to that of Android 4.0+. As there seems to be something of a trend for using “blacked out” Android applications, this may well prove to be popular with quite a few people. It also provides a good base for anyone who might wish to make their own further personalizations to the appearance of the site.
Feel free to check out the original forum thread for GermainZ’s dark userstyle for more information.

Should you happen to experience any irregularities, please disable any such modifications and check if the issue persists before reporting it to us or telling all of your Twitter followers how much “we suck.”
