In The Dark is designed to be compact, dark, and easily visible. Most of the icons use only Black, white, and four shades of gray, in a standardized style to easily recognize what action is being taken. The theme's icons were created by RealityRipple specifically for In The Dark, and may freely be reused. Title inspired by the album by Beatdrop.
The GUI craze of the 2000s was round, glassy, and bubbly. They take up resources, distract the eye, and in many cases, inhibit productivity and understanding. From the mid-2010s, big flat colors gained the user's eye. In The Dark is a step in a different direction for user interfaces. It's designed to be minimalistic, using a total of six colors: black, white, and four shades of gray, which it employs in a standard and logical manner in order to easily see icons and objects, determine the state of those objects, and what they do.
In The Dark uses high-clarity icons to make even the smallest buttons easy to understand, keeping the interface from hindering your work. Items you can click are easily identified by a noticeable alteration of color. Menus stay flat against the background until you need them, and the selected item makes itself clearly known without being displeasing to the eyes. The entire interface uses a very dark-oriented tone to keep your eyes from being strained by light, and white text sticks out plainly without being overpowering or hard to read.
This theme was the most popular thing I created, with a total download count of over 730,000 at its height. Since In The Dark's final
release for Firefox
in August of 2013, Mozilla has abandoned its own technologies in favor of poor parody of Google's protocols (WebExtensions), leaving many developers, including this one, disillusioned with the direction the Mozilla is taking. In contrast, Pale Moon
has stepped into place as an XUL-centric browser, keeping backward compatibility better
than Mozilla's own flagship project. For Pale Moon users, In The Dark
