    Dear team,

    Could you include a night/dark mode? is really difficult to spend hours with a tab and the strong white light from the monitor.

    Hi Gerald, thank you for your suggestion, I have sent it to our dev team. But I advise you to use night shift on your computer, or a software like Flux https://justgetflux.com 😉
