I use the Monokai Bright Sublime 3 theme mostly for editing HTML. It bothered me the bracket highlighting for HTML was so hard to see.

In the Sublime menu you can then set the theme from the Preferences menu > Color

I have been experimenting with giving Firefox a flat design look with inspiration from Safari and iOS 7. I wanted to get rid of all the borders, gradient backgrounds, and boxy look.
