These days, it’s common practice for web designers to include many different levels of contrast in their final products. That way, visitors may see a website in the colors of their choice.
As a practical matter, this usually means choosing between dark and bright settings. Nonetheless, the aim is not only aesthetic. The level of contrast between the background and foreground is crucial for readability. For instance, a dark color scheme may be preferred by those users who have trouble seeing the screen.
Designers are also considering the user’s preferred system configuration. Some websites may now automatically determine if the user’s computer is configured to a dark or light theme and provide the appropriate design options accordingly.
However, requiring one specific contrast setting from people is never a wise idea. This is why a switch between them must be made available. And on that capability, we will now concentrate.
