Google Chrome for Windows 10 to Get Dark Mode Soon, Engineer Reveals

Append -force-dark-mode at the end of the Target field, like in the image below. On the smartphone I also try and steer UI options to the dark side, which works particularly well on the AMOLED screen (easy with Android 9.0 Pie, but on earlier Android versions Themes can help). While we knew that Chrome for Mac was getting dark mode support, it looks like the Windows version was supposed to have feature parity, but that support for the PC was dropped because the developer working on the feature was apparently unable to get hold of a Windows machine in order to carry out testing.

The way the feature was designed was that Chrome would honor the OS light/dark theme by automatically switching between a light and dark theme when the user changed the OS UI theme.

With all this fuss, it finally appears that Google Chrome Dark Mode is about to be released (via 9to5google) for both Windows 10 and macOS.

Google is working on integrating Dark Mode into the Google Chrome web browser on Windows. The Windows 10 dark app mode (October 2018 Update), low-blue light scheduler, dark wallpapers, and apps/sites with dark modes all help save my eyeballs from too much distress, especially when burning the midnight oil.

"Chrome should respect this", wrote Kasting. Unfortunately such themes / extensions aren't available for mobile users.

Tab Cards now only work in Chrome Canary - an experimental version of the browser that lets early adopters try new features first, and enables developers to see how their sites and apps will work in future versions of Chrome.

The obsession around Dark Mode continues, as in the last few days we have heard about nothing but the upcoming dark side of Google Chrome. Once this is displayed you have a scrollable version of Chrome open, which will allow (without direct URL input) navigation away to other sites if the links are there on the Wikipedia page to begin with.

Right-click on the shortcut icon and select Properties.

The dark theme is still unfinished, hence this menu with nearly illegible black text on a dark grey background. Similarly, Mozilla implemented the dark theme to Firefox and the support for the dark theme came into the latest release of macOS. The flag is now available in Chrome 73 on Canary and Developer version but works only on Canary build. You can see that some of the menu text isn't the right colour yet, for example.
