cursor highlight

Hi, I use Chrome Dark Theme Flag, so every webpage has a dark background. Cause of that, I can't see replit's cursor when writing code.
Is there any way to change the cursor color and make it brighter?

Thanks

Replit has a built in dark mode, go to your profile settings and turn on explorer, leave and come back, then change the theme to dark

@MrVoo He wants to change the cursor colour

MrVoo

@sn236 He's talking about some Chrome tool thats makes a fake darkmode

@MrVoo No, he wants to change the cursor colour, because he can't see it.

@sn236 The built in dark mode has a visible cursor.

@sn236 thanks, you understood correctly, the cursor basically has the same color as the background, so it's hard to see it blinking

@RobertCodeGit To fix it, use the built in dark mode :/

@MrVoo I did that, the cursor is now visible, but the whole replit.com site became dark blue instead of black. Anyway, I can work on it all the same ...

@RobertCodeGit Well, dark blue is replit's dark mode color.
