It seems that this year we will see the arrival in force of the popular 'Dark Mode'. After Google has invested heavily in upgrading its Android apps, it will also introduce night mode as a native option for the new Android Q.
In addition, we are increasingly seeing Web services offering this option, which makes the entire interface of your sites darker. Now, the first image of the supposed test version of 'Dark Mode' for the Google Chrome browser has surfaced, and the results don't seem to surprise anyone.
The image was published on the Reddit platform, featuring a new open tab in Google Chrome, where the entire color palette has a dark hue. However, it seems too obvious that much work remains to be done until a final version is reached.
'Dark Mode' for Google Chrome is already in the testing phase, but not surprising yet!
In the image, we can highlight several details that would surely leave users very unhappy. Firstly, the text on the suggested (or bookmarked) sites continues to be dark in color, making the names almost impossible to read. Second, the whole new 'theme' presents itself practically as a copy of 'Incognito Mode'.
With the arrival of Dark Mode, what will happen to incognito mode? Will it stay the same and will we now have two identical-looking modes, or will Google make the incognito mode 'whiter'?
Another proof that this new implementation is still at an early stage of development is also an image showing the theme of the menus. In this section of browser, the text continues to turn black, making it almost impossible to read the options.
Is this new mode really effective for browsers?
I have mentioned in the past that I am a true fan of 'Dark Mode', especially when it means not suffering from light attacks in my eyes. However, its implementation in browsers it seems to me to be a useless as much …
At least in the short term. Since, the browser may even have a totally dark interface. But the pages we visit continue to have a white background, which eventually gets even more prominence.
Therefore, until this trend extends also to the vast majority of websites. I don't see much practical use in the arrival of 'Dark Mode' to Google Chrome. Still, it is only at an early testing stage. It can take weeks to months to make it available to all users.
