Google Chrome for Windows 10 is getting a native dark mode

We have heard a lot about Google's intentions of rolling out a Chrome Dark Mode, first for macOS and then for Windows 10.

Unfortunately, for mobile Chrome users who do not have the ability to add themes and extensions, Kasting did not have any insight as to when a dark mode would be added.

Given that Windows 10 has been capable of supporting Dark Modes for quite a while now, the lack of progress on bringing it to Windows could have been seen as a worrying sign that there was nothing in the offing, however, one of the Chromium team, Senior Engineer Peter Kasting, responding to a question on Reddit has confirmed that the team are very much working on it. "Chrome should respect this", he wrote in a bug report.

This is in no way final as the Google Chrome Dark Mode hasn't even arrived on Chrome stable or beta yet.

The main issue with implementing the dark mode so far has been Chrome's 'Incognito mode.' Incognito traditionally has a dark appearance, so the Chrome team needs to find a way to differentiate browsing in dark mode from browsing in incognito.

"Windows 10 allows users to set their apps to "light" or "dark" mode".

For desktop, native dark mode support is in progress; in the meantime, we generally suggest people use a dark theme. You can select either the light or the dark theme just like in the Settings App or can select Change Automatically which will enable the Choose custom start time... option. The company already added a dark mode to its various offerings, including Android and YouTube. 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.

It's also worth noting that the theme is unfinished. To return to the light theme, remove the aforementioned parameter from the Target field in the shortcut Properties screen.
