Magus I have tried using other themes, but I always come back to SF Default.
As in Dwarf's quote, effort has been made to provide a number of skins to suit needs/personal preferences.

Unlike many other forums, where you have a very restrictive choice of skins (if any at all), John (z3r010) has made a great effort on his Forums to provide a number of skins to suit people's needs. It is not compulsive to use a particular one, as each user is free to pick and choose any of the skins which s/he finds most comfortable to use. If, however, you find a problem on one or more of the skins (missing functionallity), please let him know.
Mine happens to be the default, I like the contrast between the various page elements,
One thing that I have noticed is I hesitated to switch back to default after I used the three black themes; black, black wide, and pitch black.
I have a visual difficulty (contrast) with black themes, but there is a softness to these three.
That is probably the reason I do not like the beta black bar that google is trying out now on their search pages.
