Hi, I'd like to share how i achieved to get a more pleasant theme for Wikipedia (default white burns my eyes out of my head...):

The standard browser is a little brother of Firefox, so it's possible to use (some?) addons!

Install Stylish:

  1. Goto https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/stylish/ and click the button at the button to change to full-site view.
  2. You are now able to "download anyway for platform x" (i've chosen linux)
  3. Tap and hold on download link an copy it to clipboard
  4. Open a new tab and paste the download url there. delete the "?" and everything thereafter -> press [Enter]
  5. Browser asks if you want to install -> yes you want :)

Installing Themes:

  1. Ok this is a little bit inconvenient; Open a Firefox on your PC (i propose to use a seperate profile)
  2. Install Stylish and goto http://userstyles.org/styles/97039/wiki-dark to install the style
  3. Now connect your Jolla to your PC
  4. Goto your profile folders on both devices (e.g. %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles[profile]\ and "Phone Memory".mozilla\mozemebed)
  5. Copy stylish.sqlite from PC to Jolla
  6. Profit!

I'm pretty sure there is a way to install themes via console with curl http://userstyles.org/styles/97039/wiki-dark.css and sqlite INSERT into the stylish.sqlite. But i don't know how all the tables in there are connected and which fields are mandatory to add a theme, so this is much faster right now ;-)

You can edit the stylish theme, use paint_it_black as user and the last word of the username as password...

If you use DuckDuckGo, goto to https://duckduckgo.com/settings and click load settings from cloud near the page bottom. Use paint_it_black as password and you will get this:

The browser really would need some more tweakability along these lines. Good for you for figuring this out.
