This article explains how to use the dark mode (theme) in the Google Chrome browser.
Google Chrome is a cross-platform web browser developed by Google. It and Microsoft Edge share the same codebase. They are practically identical in basic functionalities, using browsing activities, including history and other browsing data, to provide personalized ads, search, shopping, and news.
When you use Chrome, it uses the system’s default or bright background color. Howerver, users can use the dark theme, which changes the default bright background color to a darker color, which is easier on the eyes in low-light environments or if you prefer less bright interfaces.
Google Chome has no standalone dark theme or color to switch between. You may be able to find dark themes in the themes store. You can also change the Chrome theme color from your profile.
