3. Chrome in The Dark

Chrome in the Dark

When you’re sitting in a dark environment browsing through bright pages is really annoying, even with your monitor setup as dark as possible.
Chrome in the dark, when enabled, modifies the page colours to be darker.
To do this there are currently 2 methods (or modes).

Reverse Colors (default)
Every ‘too bright’ background colour is converted to it’s negative (the text colour is also reversed for readability).
Pages may appear ugly, but at the very least they won’t hurt your eyes anymore (or at least less then before?).

Darken Screen
A black transparent layer is added on top of the page. This basically created an effect similar to darkening your monitor.
After installation, a new button will be added to chrome and with a single click you can enable or disable the darkening.

You may switch modes in the plugin options.



It’s crucial to prioritize eye safety when spending extended periods in front of a screen due to the potential strain and discomfort it can cause. Prolonged screen exposure may lead to digital eye strain, characterized by symptoms like headaches, blurred vision, and dry eyes. This discomfort can affect productivity and overall well-being.

Additionally, prolonged exposure to blue light emitted by screens may disrupt sleep patterns, impacting both the quantity and quality of rest. Protecting your eyes with measures such as taking regular breaks, adjusting screen brightness, and using blue light filters can contribute to long-term eye health and ensure a more comfortable and productive digital experience.
