All my browsers have a light yellow/orangish default background - very
light on the eyes and very good for spotting broken websites (ie not
sites that let you use custom colors but sites that assume browser
settings - for example when some frames specify white background and
others forget about it).

This should be mandatory in any web shop IMHO - but even big sites are
often broken this way.
