    Probably this:

    A complete rework of its user-interface with the GTK code now being fully controlled via CSS rules. In turn with no code reflecting the layout, the entire GUI can be properly themed now and there are several different themes to be shipped with Darktable 3.0.

    Thank God for GTK3. It makes things so consistent yet easy to theme.

    I would like see the photos in full screen, zoom with the mouse to 1:1 at one position and back, and label or delete the photos or switch the the next and previous one with a keyboard shortcut.
    And I told you, that these shortcuts are there. And there is a complete overview
    https://www.darktable.org/usermanual/en/shortcuts.html
    If the workflow doesn't match your entrenched habits - stick to your products. I've been using darktable for years and I suppose I'd find Adobe's preferences initially completely counterintuitive.

    Loading next or previous images takes no time, even with my 35 MP raws. But I do have them on an NVMe SSD.

    If I remember correctly, Bridge doesn't edit RAW files, only views them. What's the comparison here with photo editors then?
    It bundles Adobe Camera Raw, which is a decent RAW editor with a pretty approachable UX:I haven't tried digiKam yet.

    Perhaps have a look at Digikam for culling needs. It's not FastPictureViewer fast, but still quite fast. I always run the photos through Digikam first before I even open them with an editor. Hope this way it fits your workflow expectations a little more.

    Maybe you should invest a minimum amount of reading a documentation or at least trying to hit some keys randomly...

    RawTherapee? F11, then m for "preview", but it's not true full-screen, it leaves a lot of UI shown. Zoom to 100%? Double-click, fine. Next/prev image? F4 and Shift-F4, but they don't work reliably, and it takes a second or so to load the images.

    And I think it's better now than when I tried last time. Compare that to Bridge: full-screen is space, next/prev are on arrows and load instantly, 100% zoom is left click.

I think this is a basic culling workflow where you remove the bad pictures and keep the good ones.

    Neither of the projects supports it.
