Notice how bad the text colors are in dark them.

It's a little better on the light theme.

 

 

also Edge insider needs the page themes from Classic Edge, they have nicer colors

It's great to see the reading themes are being worked on. What I would love is a dark grey theme with white text. In fact, the colors from edge's dark theme would be perfect. The pure black page is a bit too much contrast for me.

Yes the pitch black isn't comfortable for me either when reading for a prolonged period.
i usually use lighter colors like yellow or darker shade of green
