@kyu3a I think it would be better to use black icons like the toolbar icons. They would be white in dark themes. I reported this as a bug, as many user-defined themes do not work with the coloured icons.
(VB-93207) Insufficient Contrast for Coloured Icons in Settings
Maybe an option to disable coloured icons would show them as monochrome.

@savidge The Theme background can use an Animated PNG Image. Create your own with APNG Assembler or a similar program. There are also online APNG Creators.
Try to keep the file size down by not using too many frames, or by tiling small images. Use a large time gap between frames.
These settings would give a delay of 10 minutes. The file size is 223 Kbytes, but the dimensions are smaller than one would need for a full screen image.
These settings give a delay of one minute, but since the textures can be tiled, the images are only 256 pixels. The APNG is 84.2 Kb.
@Pesala said in Search themes?:
@eddjasfreeman There is already a search on Vivaldi.net for Themes. Click the magnifying glass icon on the top right, next to your profile icon.
Do you mean a search for themes in the Settings dialog?
There is an option to set as favourite? Maybe this could be better than search.
AFAIK most of the Vivaldi GUI background color are auto adjusted. Now, from the screenshot you provided I found your color palette somewhat problematic - both Background & Accent colors are set to #000000! This is a formula for terrible background contrast. The purpose of Accent color is to provide secondary highlight to Highlight color, so you should set it to be slightly lighter or darker than BG color, but never exactly the same.
I suggest you set the Accent color to something lighter, like #333333 , warmer color #443333, or cooler color #333344. Basically, in general there should be at least 15% of contrast between 2 colors for your eyes to see a distinctive differences from a screen in close range, & 30% contrast from far away.
So, even if you setup a Dark Theme, there should be some distinctive level of depth between elements to help your eyes recognize 'em easily. Else, your eyesight will be harmed overtime, cuz you are forcing your eyes constantly focusing extra hard to recognize elements hidden in the dark from a screen. 😉
I wouldn't dislike something like explorers do (titles view)
Not too much minimal and shouldn't be extremely hard* to re-use most current speed dial code
Also would be already grid friendly, url may be easily editable, favicons or thumbs may be chosen, quick at foldering.
