Breeze Dark in Windows
Steve-_- noticed that Breeze Dark theme looks like this on Mac: http://imgur.com/a/63zij
It's almost the same in Windows with 22.214.171.124, except the icon art is white and not grey (see attachment).
Breeze Dark seems to be new in 5.3, at least in Windows. Is it supposed to be enabled?
Confirming, since both steve-_- and I saw this.
Breeze Dark is intentionally made with bright colors to get some contrast on dark backgrounds. You should rather use the normal Breeze icon theme on Windows (without any special theme).

NOTABUG? How so? Users are able to select Breeze Dark and will end up with unreadable icons. That's what I'd consider a bug. I understand that the icons are light and the idea is to have a dark background. But all that can not be required for users to be known prior knowledge before selecting "Breeze dark".
@Heiko could you elaborate why this is not a bug? If breeze dark is an expert only option it maybe should be treated as such?
Maybe we should still close this bug and file a new one regarding cross-platform usage of dark themes?
I am re-opening this bug for the time being. Feel free to close again if you disagree with my above statements.

> NOTABUG? How so? Users are able to select Breeze Dark...
We do not keep users away from customization of meaningless setups. So why should we introduce one icon theme with two flavors and chose internally what is presented eventually rather than let the user decide (Breeze and Breeze-Dark are available; same for Sifr, the other monochrome theme )? In case of medium muted themes, e.g. Silver on Windows or Solaris on KDE4, it could easily be the wrong decision.
=> Still NAB, feel free to file a new issue with a clear use case.
