    Default Light or dark background?

    As you know, the two most popular website backgrounds are white, black, or variations of these colors.
    Other background / font colors seem to be marginal.

    What is your opinion, which audience prefer dark sides, what light ones, and what do you prefer?
    Which topics suit which backgrounds?
    In my opinion, dark backgrounds suit casino and cryptocurrency related sites.

    I would choose a dark background too, if I were to create my next website.

    It depends on what your website is for. If you want your visitors to be able to read your texts, then the background should be white or light grey, and if you want them to keep their attention on the headlines, images, and CTA buttons, then dark should be chosen.

    Today I'm definitely biased towards a lighter background to support improved readability with lots of content. But, when we first launched the CasinoCity.com website back in 1995 the background was solid black.

    Here is a link to one of the earliest captures of the site by the Internet Archive Wayback Machine featuring a black background and blinking neon lights:

    I am all for light backgrounds, dark can be quite uncomfortable.

    I stick to bright colors myself, they are safer. However, a dark theme can be really beautiful if it's properly designed. I am thinking to use a dark theme.

    Voted light, this is my personal preference, for me it looks more clean and easy to navigate when everything is bright

    Light is the way for me. Dark might be a little too grim and not so uplifting.
    Unless, using the app at night then for sure it is very handy to have that quick switch option where everything can turn dark.

    I always go to light colour scheme when working. Just seems easier on the eyes.

    I recently changed the background of my site to black because I heard that people stay longer on darker themes, but there was no change when I checked the analytics.
    I think the brighter background gives a sense of security and makes the site easier to use.
