Contrary to the other answers in here, I'd say there's nothing particularly wrong about your site's color choices. We spend all day looking at light backgrounds and dark text (MS Word, StackExhcange, lots of IDEs, etc.) I have a hunch people aren't complaining about the colors on your site. They're complaining that you changed the design of their site. ...

I think what could be happening is that combined with the change from serif to san-serif and the use of quite a black font on a virtually white background is causing a ghosting contrast problem especially when moving on to sites with quite a light font. The sans-serif font results overall in more ink on the page because the strokes are a constant width, so ...

What causes the issue is staring at a very bright background continuously. This causes the cells at your retina to get tired, which makes reading almost impossible. There are two fixes: Avoid using large very bright backgrounds (duh!). Any large surface should be something other than bright white. Variation. The issue is not really caused by something ...

It looks like you have improved the UI that it is actually more readable now than before. You have changed from serif font to sans-serif which increases readability on screens. The factors that effect readability are the following: Choosing a legible font With legible font size Sufficient contrast The right length of lines Distinct sections ...

First you should think about the porpoise for a background change instead of starting by looking the reasons for not doing so. Does it add any value to the user? Is that distinction really needed? If you want to change just one page you should have a good reason to do it, and you should take into account things like: What impression does cause the ...

Absolutly isn't a problem! I undestand that the consistency is important in the design but with the the introduction of iOS 7 and 8 we have the possibility to introduce many background(including beuatiful gradients). If you have a webpage that need flow and user friendly you must have a very nice convination with awesome backgrounds and the user feels fresh ...

Consistency is always an important part of usability but that's not to say that some things can't change. It really depends on why you want the page to look different. For example, it is common for a website to use colour coding to identify different areas of a website, where things like text, headings and links all change colour. That helps users to ...

Typeform provides a useful real world example of how to handle this problem, which is broadly in line with your third point: Load the video (paused) and give the user an option to play the video? On a desktop device the video plays automatically. On an iPad or and Android phone (the only additional devices I've tested) a still of the video is shown ...

I suggest you can probably provide two options, so that users can switch depending on their situation where they are and based on their mobile internet access. Create a lite version of the landing page where video/images are not available, show just the required content. And other version as standard where in it replicates the same design provided on the ...
