We have been following the development of an official Dark Mode for the Google Chrome browser for some weeks, and today that new feature is finally available to all on Mac, Windows, and Linux.
The feature is similar to the Dark Theme in Incognito mode, and responds to the Theme selected in the operating system.
The feature does not appear to be fully developed for Windows yet, but can be enabled like this:
- Right click on its shortcut on the desktop and select Properties
--enable-features=WebUIDarkMode – force-dark-modestring in the Target field after “chrome.exe” (see the screenshot below).
On launching the browser you should be able to see the dark version of the browser.
Besides the Dark Mode, the update also brings along a number of other changes and improvements including improvements in synching and account sign-in, support for media hardware keys, and auto Picture in Picture.
The update also brings a number of other improvements for developers, which can be seen in video below:
