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

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

Dark modes are something that have been getting added to software and services at a fair old rate of knots, and Google was found to be working on making a dark mode available for Chrome on the Mac back in September. As MSPowerUser reports, via Techdows.com, a member of the Chromium team and senior Chrome Engineer Peter Kasting has signalled that Google is working on a dark mode for the desktop browser but users should use a dark theme for now, if they prefer a dark UI.

Seeing as enabling Chrome's dark mode manually on a Mac is just a case of knowing what steps to take, it appears that the same thing can be done on Windows.

As MSPoweruser reports, the bugbear has been on Chrome's radar (thanks in no small part to Kasting himself) for some considerable time, but this is the first solid evidence that something is really being done about it.

Under the text box for light, you can enter the time in 24 hours format to switch to the light theme, and under the text box for dark, you can enter the time in 24 hours format to switch to the dark theme and finally click on Apply to set it up.

All that said, we can't be too hard on Google.

First meteor shower of 2019 peaks tonight
While most meteor showers have two-day peak, Quadrantids only peak for a few hours, so plan accordingly. This particular asteroid is 2003 EH1, which takes 5.52 years to orbit the sun once.

Now, according to a Chromium source code commit, one of these flags has been added to Chrome on Windows 10. But, what about the tech giant Microsoft's Windows 10? Recently Kasting followed up on a Reddit thread on the topic of a Chrome dark mode confirming that it was in the works (but no date was put forward). One solution could be to implement a preference toggle or integrate dark mode as a theme that users can select.

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.

Download Chrome Canary for your Windows machine. To return to the light theme, remove the aforementioned parameter from the Target field in the shortcut Properties screen.

The reasoning behind Chrome's dark mode skin is that users can enable it to counter eye fatigue and reduce battery consumption, being known that dark themes save battery life on devices with AMOLED displays.
