The private mode is very boring and dark can I change it to set it in light or auto
@Joe100, thank you for bringing this to our attention. I think that there should be some level of customization/optimization for private tabs. we have opened an issue in our Brave-browser repo (this is our brave-core/1.0 repo) for the team to look over and discuss. Please see:
02:37AM - 15 Sep 18 UTC
Users should be able to customize the appearance of their priva
… te windows/tabs with themes or in the same way standard windows are. While this customization should be allowed, some restrictions should be placed on theme to avoid the user confusing a standard tab with a private tab should they use similar or identical themes.
- Brave could create some number of predefined "Private themes" for users to choose from. This would ensure that **the distinction between standard and private windows is preserved**. This is opposed to allowing users set the private window theme to be any available theme. If this were allowed, it opens the potential for **both private and standard windows to have the same (or similar) themes blurring that distinction**. While that would likely fall under the "user error" category, our stance on keeping the users information/data private should carry over to this [privacy based] feature. It shows that we know that [sometimes silly] mistakes happen and Brave has done everything it can to prevent them.
- Private windows should stay "dark" in tone overall, but adjust tint/shade as I have heard users mention (contrary to the norm) that it is sometimes hard to distinguish certain elements _with_ dark mode implemented. Additionally, changing the color/brightness of _UI elements_ within the private tab (or private tab theme) may be an easy way to initially address the dark/bright problem by ensuring that regardless of the central color theme, everything in Brave remains clear and easy to distinguish.
