Google Chrome is about to launch a Dark mode for desktop computers running Windows operating systems, particularly Windows 10. Google was discovered developing a dark theme for Chrome browser on MacOS Mojave, and it will soon be developed on the Windows operating system.
Now, it has been revealed by a senior engineer at Chrome that Windows 10 will soon get the feature.
Thanks to Google Chrome's Dark Mode, users can easily use the computer in the dark without straining their eyes. This Dark Mode support on Chrome is not a new development for Google. Previously, YouTube and Android also featured this. In the latest update of Windows 10, the feature has been released, including Windows Explorer and many other applications.
Peter Kasting reported that Google Chrome did not have Dark Mode in May 2018, according to TechDows.com. He said Windows is developing this feature and allowing users to use dark light mode according to their preferences. Chrome should also allow this customization, so until now, people can only use incognito mode on Chrome as Dark Mode. But Chrome should also provide users with a better version of this feature, which is also a requirement of many users for a long time.
Those are the reasons that motivated the team at Google to develop a dark, native desktop mode.
Peter Kasting, who is a researcher of the Chromium team working at Google and Chrome's senior engineer, posted on Reddit that Chrome is trying to develop a native dark mode theme for the desktop version. However, he did not provide any information about this change in mobile devices as he doesn't have visibility in that division.
Currently, people have to use incognito
The company recently submitted a change in code that in the near future will bring the dark mode to Chrome 73 on macOS devices. This code is able to identify the built-in Dark Mode used on macOS Mojave and provide the browser with a dark treatment. This may be similar to Mozilla's Firefox, which also offers the feature for macOS devices.
In recent times, Windows has brought a lot of changes to its users in the dark mode more comprehensively. In contrast, Google doesn't bring too many changes to support this to Windows devices. Until now, if users wanted to use Dark Mode to reduce light when browsing, they had to use dark themes designed by third parties in the Chrome Web Store.
