Now that Photoshop CS6 has a nice dark interface, Camera Raw should follow suit for the same reason: to focus on the photo itself. (Also, dark interface looks cool.)

Of course, it should be the same color as the "rest" of PS.

I have another idea:
Can`t we have a UI for ACR that`s similar to the new UI that blur gallery uses? That would mean that you could see the whole layered composition, even if you are using ACR. Let`s say your top layer is a RAW-smart object with a layer mask, so that you see only part of that layer. If you make a double-click on the smart object, you would get the ACR controls as floating panels (like blur gallery). But you still see the layers below and can judge, which adjustments look best within your composition.

Probably best to make a separate new topic with your UI like Blur Gallery request.

In camera raw it would be great to have the choice of different background colors and also the black hairline around the picture should be an option only, like in Photoshop. Preparing files for prepress or fine art prints, it is always a great help to see bright outer areas of an image against a white background. One can also better judge slight tonal differences and gradients better.

ACR UI Brightness Adjustment.

You should be able to adjust the brightness of the UI in ACR like you can in Bridge and Photoshop.

great that the background colors can now be changed clicking via context on the image background in Camera Raw 8.3 RC! Thanky a lot for that option. Now to make it perfect, please let me also remove that black hairline...

Photoshop and Bridge both allow you to change the background color why not Camera Raw. This is a big issue for people who are editing for print. My images are consistantly dark coming out of Camera Raw because of this issue.
