Dark mode for Google Chrome is finally out on Mac

Dark mode for Google Chrome is finally out on Mac

As per Chrome 73's release notes, Windows support is "on the way". Google Chrome 73 is now available for download for GNU/Linux, macOS, and Windows from our web portal. Chrome 73's dark mode conforms to the Mac machine's dark theme if the same is applied at OS level. Chrome 73's dark mode on Mac looks quite similar to the browser's native incognito mode.

Dark modes are all the rage, and now Chrome has come to the table.

As for Chrome 73 on Android, it brings the ability to view content on the Dino page, which means users can browse through suggested articles even when they are offline.

Google promoted the Chrome 73 web browser today to the stable channel for all supported platforms, including GNU/Linux, Windows, and macOS, and it's now rolling out to all users via OTA updates. You can tap this to load the regular version of the page (something like the "desktop" and "mobile" web pages options for websites) and Chrome will automatically disable Lite pages "on a per-site or per-user basis when it detects that users frequently opt to load the original page".

In addition to the wider support for PIP mode, Chrome 73 will also let developers add hardware media key support to web apps.

Chrome now optimizes HTTPS pages by showing a "Lite" indicator in the URL bar, much like it does with the HTTP pages when there is a low internet network.

On launching the browser you should be able to see the dark version of the browser.

If you're a Chrome user who also happens to use a Mac, you're in for some good news. Additionally, automatic picture-in-picture mode optimisation for video in PWAs and the addition of a "Skip Ad" button in Picture-in-Picture window are among the new features that have entered testing with Chrome 73's arrival. You'll also have to relaunch your browser after it has been updated to version 73 for the changes to take effect.
