How to force dark mode on websites on Google Chrome

Google Chrome is used every day by millions of people to search and find the information that they need. It gives you an opportunity to find the answer to your question within several minutes. Google Chrome is used all the day and not less it’s used at night.

As developers have filled the browser with many features and opportunities to let all groups of users feel convenient, many people want to feel relaxing while using the browser at night. Your eyes may feel stressed from the very bright light of the screen, so, you are provided with an opportunity to turn all the websites and services on Google Chrome into dark mode.

Why dark mode is better

Dark Mode is a display setting that is used for user interfaces such as smartphones and desktops. Basically, when you switch on the dark mode, instead of dark text on the light background, you’d see the dark background with the light text. In this way, the stress which influences your eyes health would be significantly reduced. The dark mode is also known as black mode, dark theme, night mode, and light-on-dark.

There are many advantages of using this mode, except for, the eyes health. Read the section below to know why to use the dark mode:

  • It’s better for low-light settings. While using your smartphone at night, you won’t bother other people and wake them up.
  • The amount of “blue light” that is emitted from your phone would be reduced. This helps you not to fall asleep while using your phone before you go to bed.
  • This mode reduces the usage of the energy, so your battery would last longer.
  • This mode also is good for users with light sensitivity or visual impairment.

So, as you can see the dark mode has no benefits that you may experience while using it. Fortunately, you won’t need to make much effort to enable it and experience the pleasure of usage.
