Should dev tool themes be light or dark?

I spend hours every day writing code and find that having a dark theme is a lot easier on the eye.

Using high contrast colours such as pink, green, yellow and blue I find it's much easier to skim read and get to what I'm after fast.

So much so, I wrote a dark theme for Chrome Dev Tools based on my favourite theme - Monokai.

Currently I'm working with Maurice making Chrome Dev Theming easier using LESS.

Also Firefox have done a great job on their dark theme:

I'm interested to know what you preference is, light or dark?
