Fun hack: Using dark mode while navigating CH

Howdy Crowdholders, 

 

From the past, we had people asking for dark mode options when using CH. Those options are in fact available using extension or browser options to make any website you go on be in dark mode. In this article, we will dive into a number of hacks you can do to enjoy dark modes battery-saving benefits!


 

Desktop Extension

 

One notable extension you can use for viewing dark mode while on CH is the extension Dark Reader.  Dark Reader changes every website you go on into dark mode, but also allows you to adjust brightness and contrast along with Sepia vision and greyscale. You can use it with Brave or Chrome as an extension. 

 

In addition, if you are a Firefox user, you can install their web extension called Dark Mode, which gives you similar features to Dark Reader. 

 


 

IOS & Android Mobile

 

Unfortunately, Brave has not built their dark mode option yet. However, if you would want to navigate using Firefox (which the core team built Brave) you are able to select dark mode from the right bottom settings icon which they call ‘night mode.’ This allows every website to have a dark display.

 

                   

 


 

Google and Apple recently came out with dark mode options with their recent software upgrades, however, this is only for specific supported apps for now which limits your website navigating dark mode capabilities. 


 

Did we miss something?


 

Feel free to let us know what hacks you do to enable dark mode on your favorite websites!


 

Thanks for reading!

Damn, dark mode has become an obsession!

I tried it out and it's cool and everything but some sites need to stay bright. I'll stick with the light side on CH :)

Don't forget to use your upvotes. You will earn from that too.

I have tried many add ons to change themes in Chrome when i still used it and on Firefox, but somehow none of them shows every website in the perfectly readable colors. So with many of them you need to adjust on several websites. In Gmail for example i had Dark font with dark background or even transparent fonts. So it took too much time to go adjust all separate things and sites.

The function i use most when reading larger chunks of text is the build in reader view (F9) to make it more easy on the eyes. That function is also adjustable, but it's a one time job for all. It makes images larger and i use the dark option. You can adjust width and heighth and space between lines. I like it, very simple but effective. Only downside is that it's pure for reading, not for using other functions such as frames and functions.

I now have installed the extension suggested in the article and so far it looks pretty cool. At first it didnt do anything, but when restarting the browser it works great. Good suggestion thanks for that, crowdholding.

My friend, please don't let the idea of saving your eyes with dark mode trap you, since it's not helping that much. The momental view will be easier, but the screen still sends these waves of blue light in your eyes. Those are the ones that will make your sight quallity eventually go backwards and the ones that will disrupt your sleeping pattern.
There are glasses on the market that filter the blue light coming from screens. And i'm not sure, but there should be even some foil to stick on the screen. If not i have created myself a new business model just now lol.

An easy invention idea from childhood. Me and my brothers spent summers at the beach, on Lake Michigan. Many nights, the wind blew steady off the water ..

Good to know about this. Couldn't have come at a better time but for some reason, I want to stick to my original mode. Night mode can wait.

I use an Android phone. This task got me experimenting. I am able to set a few things to dark mode including: Google chrome, and You tube. There are things that don't have that option,d of course. As I discover  more, I will post them. Thanks for this task. I never knew I had the option for dark mode!
