Improve checklist visibility

For checklists you can barely distinguish between open and completed items

Corroborating this on Firefox (with Dimmed Dark). The checkboxes are still white, which makes it very hard to tell at a glance which are checked and which aren’t.

I suspect GitHub has been able to get away with this so far by not styling checkboxes at all and letting the browser handle it, which does seem like a pretty sensible way of doing things, but that approach isn’t working currently.

Agree with this! I’m using both Edge and Firefox, and I find it quite difficult to distinguish between completed and incomplete items. Even on the regular “light” theme I think it could use something more to help people quickly identify what’s checked and unchecked in a list when scanning through it quickly. Maybe use an accent colour?

for the checked boxes either a green background with a white tick or just a green tick would be awesome and that would make it much easier to distinguish checked and non-checked items.

Here is an example how it could look like:

Also having some visibility issues with Firefox and Pop!OS. It’s almost impossible to see the check boxes until they are clicked, although this may be unique to me:

I have the same issue one Opera/Windows. I have hard time distinguishing between completed and open tasks in dark theme:
