Chrome, a cross-platform web browser developed by Google, has finally joined the club of browsers containing dark theme. Users now can avail the service through the Flags menu on the Canary channel.
The feature is still in early development, so it's unclear when it'll come to the Stable channel, reports tech based US portal androidcentral.
While Windows and macOS users have been enjoying their flavors of dark mode for quite some time now, Chrome OS users have sadly been missing out on the fun.
However, thanks to a recent sighting by Android Police on the Chrome OS Canary channel, it looks like Chrome OS users can now join in on the dark mode hype train.
The system-wide feature is still in its early development stages and is not officially ready to come to the Stable channel yet, but if you have a Chromebook and are itching to start using the upcoming feature today, you can do just that by going into the Flags menu on Chrome.
To avail the theme, simply open Chrome on your Chomebook, and then copy and paste chrome://flags/#enable-force-dark and chrome://flags/#enable-webui-dark-mode into the URL bar, where you can turn on both flags in the drop-down menu.
Although the feature isn't fully ready and definitely has some bugs to squash, it already works on the Chrome browser and a bunch of different system web apps. The dark theme already seems to be a pretty comprehensive feature so far as it not only applies to the app backgrounds, but seems to apply to other UI elements as well.
Dark mode has been in high demand for any OS over the past few years for its benefits on eye strain and general readability. Even if you're not a fan of dark mode, you have to admit it's always refreshing getting to try a new look on your current device.
