I tweaked the colors in the default Ambiance theme and I think it makes a world of difference. Visit the appearance preferences and click to “Customize” the default Ambiance theme.
And tweak the colors. I didn’t change all of them, but here are my values for the “Background” colors in the Colors tab:
- Windows: #B9B9B9
- Input Boxes: #E4E4E4
- Selected Items: #F07746
- Tooltips: #000000
