Many websites, apps, and operating systems added dark modes in 2018. So is it now possible to enable dark mode on iOS, Android, Windows, macOS, Chrome - EVERYTHING? And why would you want to?

Bc There are no comments or I just doesn't saw any. Where did you get that google docs dark mode. I was searching for one like that, but that one I found has a wierd color frame glitches.

Dark mode is better b/c: 1) less screen lit = a lil less battery usage 2) light in darkness is more easily detectable than the reverse. This is part of why biologists love fluorescent microscopy to detect minute ppms in solutions, and physicists use this fact too in their own measurements. Eyes are remarkably good at even detecting a handful of photons in the dark. 3) more options is always great 4) the cons listed in the video such as overusing screens being bad for eyesight, also apply for black on white screens, so are a null points for comparisons

Actually it's one reason I cant use iPhones, not sure if they do now but 10 years ago Windows Phone had it sorted. When windows phone went south changed to android as it does dark mode well.... just means I'm used to this now so apple won't get a look in. Also OSX only just got around to it so will stay with windows.

I'm dyslexic, pretty much a godsend to have white on black.

fun fact: dyslexic people have an easier time reading with white text on black background. I learned this from the very credible source of the Percy Jackson series when I read it like 10 years ago.

Dark mode is easier to read text. On Foxit Reader, I use a yellow legal pad color to read text, and I can read and skim text faster.

Win 7 use high contrast setup the way you like it, and have a win 95 look if I need white background, including explorer. I setup a dark theme with grey font to take off the edge instead of white, @ night I have a lamp on for some light to reduce eye strain. Looks like that PS dark mode. I tried win 10 and not being able to play with my system fonts among other things turned me off, not to mention lots of apps that I have collected from 1995 and up wouldn't run on win 10. The only thing that I did like about win10 was being able to pause file transfers, and in picture viewer your animated gifs would work. But I will stick with win 7. I remember window blinds, it could be a resource hog at times. They should just make a os for andriod, window , linux, with all the proper darking.

I personally prefer not to enable dark mode, it is great especially in the dark, but when you have lighting around you it is unnecessary.

Hah.. I've ALWAYS set things to "dark mode" before there was a dark mode, just cuz it's more comfortable.

If you have a monitor like mine with failing capacitors (bad enough as-is) then having dark mode enabled makes it quicker to start up from a cold boot for some reason (since it's an LCD display which should always be using the same power for the backlight).

I dark mode everything on my pc by putting everything in a bright theme/ mode and starting the windows magnifier and activating the color invertion. for videos and images on a web browser, I installed a chrome extension call "Color inverter 2" which simply inverts back the colors of pictures and video on a web page.
