If you set everything to dark mode in the office at work you might as well stand on you desk and shout "I AM GOOD AT COMPUTERS! PLEASE COME TO ME WITH ALL YOUR PROBLEMS." Can confirm.

Is dark mode really something that is very hard to implement? We are living in the age of technological revolution where app developers are trying to impress us with dark mode or so called 'night mode'. They are like "Here you go...the most awaited, revolutionary dark mode". Its ofcourse useful...I am just saying it is not a thing that is worth advertising, it should have been brought before.

Ultimately it's not " is objectively better!!!1!" but an issue of CONTRAST - you consistently use your computer in a brightly-lit environment with invariably sunny days outside, a white background with black text will be easier to read, and better on your eyes, etc. But if you use your computer in a dim-lit room at night, 'inverse video' of white text on a black/dark background will be better. Back in my 8-bit days, I found my word processor (WordStar)'s two default white-on-black and black-on-white colour schemes too intense in contrast to comfortable use, so I settled on a dark blue (navy?) background with muted cyan text - still had enough contrast to read clearly, but avoided the eyestrain. Of course, the other issue of POWER USAGE is going to be more objective; a CRT trying to display a white background (essentially with every phosphor lit) WILL use more energy in a single refresh than one with a black (unlit) background, and similarly with OLEDs and the like.

Dark mode usually looks rather ugly on most pages and apps. It's really just software dev tools like text editors and IDE's where they do it right.

white text on a black background is one of the most tiring things for my eyes, which is why i don't use windows' dark mode and why nobody else uses it either, Linux has that done so much better

Red on black has been known to be easier for dark conditions for centuries. Drivers looking at a bright white screen have issues finding an exit or seeing traffic.

LG has a really solid system wide dark mode in its custom droid skin, and support for going totally black and white in all apps.

For anyone wishing for a consistent explorer WITH dark mode, lots of other themes and fully customizable UI, try Directory opus. Best software I ever bought.

Maybe we should all read things named books. They are not so bad to the eyes and they can make you more intelligent.

I don't get it. Is it better to use night mode or dark mode? Or both? I mean, I'm okay with this yellowish book-like color, f.lux turns the coloring off when in full screen and I don't have OLED because I have a laptop and obviously OLED laptops are a minority. I mean, dark themes are kick-ass. Especially when it comes to Vivaldi, Awesome WM and VS Code/Community. But... Win10's dark theme is... kinda weird.

Dark mode also saves battery on any screen. The black pixel means that the pixel is turned off. I removed my wallpaper and put a black background, against my girlfriend's will, and my phone now lasts a whole day.

I use "Kiwi Browser" which has built-in dark mode... I believe its based on Chromium (the parent project for Chrome Brower as well). Plus, having a OnePlus device has its benefits due to OxygenOS which always had a great support for Systemwide Dark mode.
