Flat & Clean GUI style

I'm new to NewsBlur, and really like its features but I just can't used to its design. There are good parts, but still it needs some polishing.

I've found this userstyle: https://userstyles.org/styles/103856/... - and while there are some minor bugs in it, with my experience I say it is awesome. I suggest you make it as an option so more users can use it - because while it works with example Greasemonkey, I can say it is too well done, for letting it stay at a third party site.

Hopefully this will be a sign of times. The official UI could need some more flatness. :D

So 1000 installs says something about maybe a theme ability? I would just have a custom css feature and offer the base newsblur css as a base to customise. Just in case it creates support issues, people saying newsblur is broke, have a toggle to switch back to default so they can check if it's the css messing site up?

So what would that custom CSS feature be? A textbox where users can enter their own CSS? Who would that help? Besides working in mobile browsers there is nothing such a feature would do better than browser addons already do. A big potential issue is that a user could paste in some bad css that ends up hiding the button that would disable the custom css. That can't happen using an addon.

What we need is selectable themes just like Samuel hinted at doing if this became popular. Feature select themes from the community (allowing the select few to quickly be checked to not break with a site updated) and an official dark theme which it's really about time we get on the web.
