Google Chrome uses the system-wide Dark Mode on iPhone, Android, Windows, and Mac devices to turn its elements into the dark.
While running your Chrome browser in the standard light mode works well, it can sometimes cause eye strain, especially if you’re working later into the evening when ambient lighting is low.
Chrome’s dark mode feature allows for the current tabs you’re working in to be illuminated while darkening the background, the home page, and toolbar, making it a more relaxing browsing experience. It also helps increase battery life although this is more page case if the device you are using has an OLED display.
