What is the reason that so many users vote for the CLEAR?
The CLEAR have a tactile key feel, just like the BROWN do, but a much higher actuation force of 55 cN (which is almost as much as the 60 cN of the BLACK which are way to stiff for touch typing!), compared to just 45cN of the BROWN, so the CLEAR are much more fatiguing when touch typing, than the BROWN.
So what is the strength of the CLEAR that many users are voting for?

It's probably just that Clear is easily the most rare of the bunch. Green would be the second (excluding all the crazy variants), but it's not even on the list. So its basically clears which are very rare, and the rest which are all incredibly common.

Hi MangoTangoFox,
I see, thank you for the information.
Well, then I guess that I am very well advised with my choice for BROWN, since what I am seeking for is the perfect keyboard solution for comfortable, effortless and lightning fast touch typing that is not fatiguing my finger muscles and tendons, rather than caring about how "common" or "rare" my switches are.
After all I am not seeking for some kind of fancy "rare collector's item", but for the best tool for the task, i.e. the best keyboard for ergonomic and effortless touch typing.

It's all personal preference. I voted for clear because I like switches with tactical feedback and I prefer switches with a higher activation force. It helps me avoid accidental keypresses and also avoid bottoming out. I actually find it more stressful on my hands if I have to avoid accidentally hitting keys with a light activation force.
