What makes Photon different? (Photon vs. Paramount)
Photon is a rewrite of Paramount, using RNB as the generator. Its aim is to expand Paramount's goal — "only [placing] emphasis on the paramount" — to the rest of Vim's interface whilst fixing its inconsistencies.
A new colour was also introduced (the orange) which is used to place additional
emphasis on the most important temporary things, such as
parenthesis, first matching search result, etc.
The following images make for a good comparison of just a few of the big interface differences between Photon (left) and Paramount (right):
