Chrome 73 finally supports dark mode on Mac

Share

We have been following the development of an official Dark Mode for the Google Chrome browser for some weeks, and today that new feature is finally available to all on Mac, Windows, and Linux.

With the release of Chrome 73 on Tuesday, the browser now natively supports the dark mode long offered in macOS Mojave.

If you don't want to wait, or if you're a Mac user who doesn't want to go all-in on dark mode just to change the color of Chrome, you can of course venture into the Chrome themes settings to pick a color of your very own. While these updates normally cover security fixes, system-level changes, and new tools for developers, Chrome 73 also includes a handful of new features for general users as well - including the much-requested Dark Mode - although their availability will be different depending on the platform you're using. Developers can now let users play, pause, and skip tracks or other playlist media using buttons on their keyboard or other connected hardware, even when the media is being played in the background.

Users can tap the indicator to see more information and to access an option to load the original version of the page, which would be the full version. Signed HTTP exchanges and constructible style sheets are among the other features arriving with Chrome browser's latest build.

The Chrome 73 update will be rolling out to all desktop users in the coming days. The release notes promise that the "Windows support is on the way".

Google Chrome 73 also brings improvements for Web Apps to allow them to notify users of various things by displaying badges on their icons, such as for unread items, better spell checking support, as well as new data collection settings to make it easier for users to control what data websites collect from them.
