With Android 10, Google introduced the system-wide dark mode for smartphones. In the parallel world, Apple with its iOS 13 debuted dark mode for iPhones. So literally, most of the prominent gadgets we use today have made a switch to Dark Mode. While it’s so, the Dark Mode on both iOS and Android is not fully implemented as still there exist few apps which haven’t yet got Dark Mode support. The best example being Google’s own browser, the Chrome Browser.
Of course, the Chrome on Android, iOS and Windows feature Dark Theme option but is of no use as it won’t darken the webpages we visit unlike Samsung Internet and other few browsers for Android. Gladly, there is a workaround by which webpages can be darkened on Chrome for Windows at least. Thanks to a few third-party extensions for Chrome Browser, we could darken the webpages as well. So, here we’ll be listing some of the extensions which will let you enable complete dark mode on Chrome Browser for Windows. Do check them out below.
