Benefits of Dark Theme

The Dark theme helps keep the focus on the screen and reduces eye strain. The dark theme is also more comfortable to use in low-light situations, as the human eye is more sensitive to bright objects in dark environments. Additionally, the dark theme makes the code more readable by providing a clear contrast between different elements, making it easier to identify different parts of the code.
