Dark theme is amazing Need to change the search icon to black or white! It currently matches the background color of dark theme.

Suggestion Please consider changing the link highlight color from blue to something that stands out better in night view mode. Glad to have it, though. Saved a ton of screen drain on my AMOLED screen.
