elementary OS protip: Hot Corners let you use certain features by just throwing your mouse cursor into the corner of the display. Head to System Settings → Desktop → Hot Corners to set them up just how you’d like!

Dark styles are hard to get right. We get see the benefits and are planning to implement it properly in elementary OS, but it takes this kind of cross-desktop work first. One of the big blockers right now is WebKitGTK (the web rendering engine we use on elementary OS).
