The upcoming dark mode on Google Chrome will act similar to the Microsoft Windows 10’s system-wide dark mode option. The new development was confirmed by Peter Kasting (Senior Chrome Engineer and a member of the Chromium team, Google) in a Reddit thread. “For desktop, native dark mode support is in progress; in the meantime, we generally suggest people [to] use a dark theme,” he said.

Currently, users can opt for the default incognito color scheme in normal mode to simulate basic dark mode (along with Windows 10 ‘Dark’ mode). Additionally, you can use many third-party dark themes and extensions, which offer multiple customizations.

One of the simplest ways to enable the dark mode on Google Chrome is the ‘Dark Theme for Chrome’ extension by Kerry Blair. It sports a great looking design and reduces eye strain. The dark theme is currently available for free.

The light extension applies black colors on social networks, New Tab, and other websites with a simple click. You won’t need to manually set different web pages like Twitter, etc to dark mode. The extension applies black theme across the whole net. It can be turned back at any time just clicking to extension menu.

Recently, Google submitted a code change to bring dark mode support to macOS. The new update will detect the default Dark Mode on macOS Mojave to transform the browser with a dark treatment. A similar feature is available on Mozilla’s Firefox for macOS Mojave users.
