  1. Hi there,

    I noticed I get more eye strain from glaring bright colors on my screen than from dark ones. That’s why I use a dark color scheme on my computer now which really helps. I also prefer to use websites with a black background like Speedchart and Bloomberg.

    Hope this helps,

    I do have my whole screen sort of light, because I prefer it. Never thought about changing my scheme. However, I am not sure how to change the color scheme on sites I view online. I have not heard of Speedchart or Bloomberg. I didn’t realize you were talking about search engines…wow, that is sort of cool.

    Just went to speedchart.com and did a search. The backgrounds are black even when you search…I can see where that might definitely cut down on computer eye strain. Thanks for the tip.

    Didn’t like having to skip an ad first thing when I went to bloomberg.com but it looks like a news site, right? How cool to have these non-glaring options. I so appreciate you taking time to share them.

    Most web designers do not use black backgrounds because it is poor web design but if computer eye strain gets to be more of an issue, we may see more sites like this. I still prefer pastels myself and yet, to protect my eyes, would change my site too if it came to that.
