Google's Chrome browser is set to get a dark mode for Windows 10, according to a report by Hot Hardware.

Further, Kasting was behind a bug post on the Chromium Bug Tracker concerning dark mode in Windows 10. Chrome should respect this.

Ultimately, we should see a dark mode in Chrome on macOS and Windows early this year.

Development to add support for macOS Dark Mode has already started as seen in this bug report created in June 2018.

Dark modes for browsers and applications have proven popular of late, with macOS Mojave featuring a built-in dark mode which provides dark-themed interfaces in windows and apps.

Of course, if you're that bothered, you can always just download a dark theme, but that's a workaround rather than a solution - the process should be tied into the OS settings, not the whimsy of a theme and that's the bit that is taking the time to become a reality. There are parts that still require to be improved, with black text on a dark background, as it's the case of the main menu, so the whole idea is to get a taste of what's to come in this regard for Google Chrome users. "For desktop, native dark mode support is in progress; in the meantime, we generally suggest people [to] use a dark theme", he said. If you can't wait for the official rollout, you can still manage to test the implementation using Chrome Canary.

After Holiday Lull, Trump-era Action Returns to White House
Trump could actually make this worse by offering something like a DACA deal and daring Democrats to reject it. Democrats believe pressure will mount on Republicans as the shutdown drags on, the aide said.

There's no timescale as yet, and moreover, even when there is a proper dark mode ready for testing, it'll have to progress through the Canary and Beta channels before it lands as a stable option, meaning that, unless you feel confident in rooting around in the flags menu, it's likely to be Summer before it's a viable option.

Once you've downloaded Canary, right click on the shortcut and select properties.

Append -force-dark-mode at the end of the Target field, like in the image below.

The inclusion of a dark mode in an app or UI is always welcome.

The macOS work has top priority (P1).
