Bug Description

I am an Ex-Firefox User and have switched recently at least on my fastest Computer at home to Midori. The only thing which prevents me from installing it also on my Daily work Netbook is the fact that Midori lacks a bit of a darker Skin, so since i did not found any Feature Request Section here - Any chance that there is added some kind of choice between bright UI and more dark UI in the Future and also perhaps the ability to make UI Fonts larger?

Would be 2 great features for Eyeglass Wearers :D

I think it's sensible, on Windows anyway, to provide guidance on how to switch themes and maybe make it somewhat easier to install a dark theme. We don't need to ship the themes but could try to make it easy to download a file in the correct folder and enable it easily.

Yeah, that would be great :) There is another example of a LInux origin Software which makes exactly that possible, Audacious.

You only have to grab a theme file and put it into the right folder. At least make it possible that something like that can be done under Windows, would really be awesome :)

Perhaps the Theme System like it is done under Audacious could be remade for Midori or something like that :D At least the handling process ;)

Just a suggestion.. If Theme Support for Windows would be too complicated/not seen as that important since Windows Users do use mostly other Browsers... any chance to make Midori UI changeable perhaps with CSS Commands?

For example being able to define in a special css-config file background color or button location/own buttons or background Pictures for Main UI Elements (Adress/Navigation Bar and status bar)?

A good example for doing it that way is Qupzilla. There is a main css file, which lists all that few UI Elements and makes it very easy to change them with special User values like written above. Would be nice to be able to do something like that for Midori, would at least be easier for Windows User to create a different outlook.
