Google Chrome On Windows 10 To Soon Get Its Own Dark Mode

  • Google Chrome with a dark theme

Google is working on its very own dark theme for Chrome browser on Windows 10, and this can only be good news for everyone.

This tutorial only works with the Canary version of Google Chrome, as Google hasn't yet introduced the dark mode in the stable builds of the browser. With native dark mode support, Google Chrome will bring a comfortable Web browsing experience on Windows machines especially in low lighting conditions. "Chrome should respect this", he wrote in a bug report.

Chrome technically already has a dark mode within the incognito mode, though you can't enable the same dark mode for the regular browser.

Google engineer Peter Kasting confirmed as much in a Reddit post, writing that the team is working on a dark mode feature for desktop.

The "-enable-feature=DarkMode" flag that lets Chrome automatically switch between a light and dark mode depending on the operating system's UI light/dark color scheme is now not supported on Windows 10.

Of course, if you're that bothered, you can always just download a dark theme, but that's a workaround rather than a solution - the process should be tied into the OS settings, not the whimsy of a theme and that's the bit that is taking the time to become a reality. To do this, right-click the shortcut Properties.

Chrome's official dark mode skin is expected to roll out later this year.

Update 01/02/2019: You can now enable the dark mode yourself if you want to try it on Windows.

Add -force-dark-mode to the end of the Target field and apply ok. All we need next is a way for websites to automatically detect the mode, too, so they can also spare our eyes from open expanses of bright white. A similar method may work on macOS as well.

Currently, the theme is clearly very unfinished; it's rife with black text on dark grey backgrounds, for example. Other aspects of the dark theme may change with time as well.
