There is a whole group of people out here with visual difficulties. Me personally, I have what's called Low Vision. I have difficulty seeing stuff clearly. I've read all the comments about the recent change to 89, and have myself tried the various themes provided to no avail. This is an extremely big concern, and may well be a legal one. Please reference the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Here are a few observations that may be useful to the developers:
Never, Never, Never, NEVER present a user with Low Vision white (or light) text on a dark background. NEVER! We just can't read it.
CONTRAST. We need contrast. The most recent changes that came with 89 have no contrast. Don't argue with me; just believe me. There is not enough contrast to be able to distinguish between items (e.g. different tabs at the top). That's particularly applicable when I try to read a tab and can't because the tab's background has become transparent and I can't read the "print" because of the very busy theme design in the background. Reference my comment above about presenting white text on a black background. It's just as bad with a transparent background. When it comes to design, just because you can doesn't mean you should.
SIZE. For most of us, each item needs to be larger. I'm referencing the icons that represent the various hyperlinks. I have such trouble making out each one of them. And there does seem to be a lot of white space that we didn't have before. I don't need all that white space; I need to see what I'm looking at.
I'm going to suggest that you recruit someone with experiencing designing graphics for folks with vision challenges. Cause right now, it looks like you don't have anyone like that on your team. And if you can't present us with suitable choices, I'm willing to bet there's a considerable number of users who will find it necessary to move on to a new browers.
Thanks for listening.
