Decouple theme color from header background colour

I think it would be beneficial if the value for them-color is a separate setting from header_background.

At the moment its set like this:

<meta name="theme-color" content="#<%= ColorScheme.hex_for_name('header_background') %>"

I tried overwriting it as a customization however setting it twice doesn’t change anything, when on a Nexus 5 using Google Chrome it just uses the first <meta> tag it sees and doesn’t take into account the secondary one.

For example, I’d like to set the theme-color to red but keep the background of the header as white still since red matches my favicon.

This is Android only (and possibly Chrome only, does it even work on Android Firefox?) so not really a priority.

No, I’ve just confirmed that FF doesn’t care about the tag on Android. And I agree, its low priority.

Now Safari is supporting it on both iOS and macOS.
