New Chrome version for Android makes the dark theme more accessible, adds password generator

07 June 2019
The dark theme isn't hidden behind a flag anymore, it should be waiting for you in Settings.

patoka, 08 Jun 2019Well, it's hard because most of the websites have been designed ... moreWell tbh i didnt meant to have all sites in black. It would be weird to read. But should still be easy to manipulate the light that is on your browser background. Dark mode is in menu and settings too now. Thats what should of been easy feature or as a theme that you dont need to download and install. Full android is Google. I didnt even think about the browser and web sites. That i would not mind to be as they originally are. But chrome it self should be in black before as an option. Even only the status bar.

Anonymous, 08 Jun 2019In android maybe. In computer Firefox is better.Yeah, Opera is the best Android browsers. I've tried pretty much all of them. On PC though it depends - if you'e a mac user, you'll swear by Safari. A lot of Windows users prefer Chrome. Opera is pretty good too. I personally used to like Safari the most, then Chrome got a lot better, then Firefox was the best for a while in certain aspects, etc. I never really got used to Firefox though -for me it was always a case of "that last Chrome update really messed it up", so I switched to Firefox until Chrome was fixed.

There are a few sites that give you the option to use a different theme but most don't. So you're essentially, forcing a black background which can mess up a lot of sites and most browser devs most likely need to a lot of time to develop an algorithm that can work on site-by-site basis. And as all people have used standard white background websites their entire lives and are used to them, most devs don't want to bother to cater to a select few that wouldn't mind the opposite.

As far as the dark UI themes go, actually up until 5 years ago Android used to be dark-themed. Then Google changed it inexplicably. I remember when I got the Galaxy S5 it was a very jarring experience too see everything in white. Now, with my p30 pro I moved to a dark theme after almost 5 years using light themes and it was a similarly jarring experience. I actually still haven't completely gotten used to it. It's all about

AnonD-816568, 08 Jun 2019Yeah i've been using Opera/Opera Mini browser since 2008 and so ... moreI hate their news feed and the suggestion tabs they provide. There's no way to disable them like Chrome has Flags for that.

I cant understand why wasnt this in phones as option already a decade ago ? It's just black background. I am too lazy to install even themes on my phones but i would like to have everything with black background. Good that i have the dark mode now that i have android 9 on my phone, but still it's weird that they start to make them now like something new and special.

Password generator has been there for awhile

Chrome rumored will break adblock and others privacy centric add-on in few updates. Also block ads and tracking except their own. Dunno if it is true or not.

I don't have it, probably rolls out by country. It will not convert webpages to dark background, unlike the Samsung browser

Already had it in April.
