How to force dark mode in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge

Hello! The dark mode is sweeping through electronic devices. Indeed, beyond the aesthetic issues, this mode is a relief for our eyes. It also means less energy is wasted. On the other hand, for those of us who spend a lot of time in front of a screen, this mode is very useful. On the other hand, manufacturers have been incorporating it into their products. For example, Android offers it and in Windows, it is also available. However, it is useless to have a dark interface if when browsing the web, the contents are shown in the white background. Therefore, ideally, web browsers should force the dark mode on the websites they display. Well, this option is available for Google Chrome since last year. Also, Microsoft Edge has just implemented it. In this post, we will see how to force dark mode in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

How to enable the dark mode.

Some options are simple to set up. However, some are hidden and disabled by default. Well, this is the case of the dark mode for websites. Since the configuration is hidden in the experimental features section of the browser. But don’t worry, getting in isn’t that hard. In fact, just go to the address bar and enter the following depending on the browser: chrome://flags/

From this moment on, the process is identical in any of the web browsers. Then, scroll through all the features until you get Force Dark Mode for Web Contents. Next, the seven dark modes offered by the option will be shown. Then you just have to restart the browser to apply it.

In effect, there are seven modes as the default color palette of the websites we visit is inverted. Below, I will show you each of the modes using our website as a reference. This way, you won’t have to reboot your browser 7 times to see what the content looks like.
