Inverts page colors, showing white text on a dark background

Image from store Dark mode / night reader
Description from store Inverts page colors, showing white text on a dark background, to reduce eye strain. Works especially well for people working during the night or in low light environments. Click the button in the icon bar to switch between the supported modes: * Mode 1 (default): invert colors and reduce contrast * Mode 2: invert colors, normal (high) contrast * Mode 3: reduce contrast only * Mode 4: disabled * Mode 5: inverts colors of text and images (useful for pages containing diagrams with text, but not photos). The settings are saved separately for each website. Right click the button to access the Options page, where you can change the default mode (for all pages). License: GNU GPLv2. Privacy: this extension respects your privacy; it does not upload any data whatsoever to the Internet. The only setting that is synced via Chrome sync is the default page mode setting; the per-website settings are stored only locally.

  • (2023-08-23) Yensama Yen: This is very good. So far works on most sites I have used. The only downside is that on some sites, it would also invert images(videos) making them impossible to see. e: the addon works as intended but it crashes a lot when alt tab with some programs. Mainly fullscreen game i think. other addons dont crash.
  • (2023-04-21) John Weiss: Seems to have a bug. Clicking the button doesn't change the mode. However, default mode works.
  • (2023-03-31) Lyubomir Dobrev: Rock-solid extension. 5 modes to switch from with just a click. Never fails to blacken any website, unlike other extensions. It does invert photo and video colors on some sites, though, so you'll have to flip back and forth sometimes. Not a problem for me at all. This is a literal eye saver, so big love from me!
  • (2023-01-29) Bruno Melgarejo: Please add the function to disable the extension on specific websites (those that already contain the dark theme, for ex. youtube, gmail, facebook etc)
  • (2023-01-21) Mdw 159: Been trying to find another better extension or at least have same ability since 2008 (Nokia mobile phone), but never found.. Now I am using it also on my PC and laptop. Suggest ppl to not try to find better extension than this one. :D -cheers!
  • (2023-01-20) Fredrik Ismyren: My fav dark mode switcher. Fast interaction directly on the menu icon. Works good in Vivaldi .
  • (2022-10-26) Cameron Enright: Thank you for saving my developing astigmatism
  • (2022-10-14) Mustafa Özhan: Hello the extension is great but unfortunately it has bug in recent versions of Chrome. It used to work before. Ie. some times when I open a page it applies wrong theme, don’t get me wrong, it remembers the previous usage correct! It shows on extensions icon let's say `4` but it applies `1` into website, so I have to click 5 times into icon then make it again number `4` and only this time it applies number `4`. Example webpage that i always reproduce is Github Pull Request page. I hope it will be fixed since I really like this extension until this bug start appearing. I am also developer so if you need anything for further investigation do not hesitate to contact me!
  • (2022-10-05) jerin jolly: how to edit per webstie settings? i have issues with somewebsites , even after disabling theme change in those websites.
  • (2022-09-20) Stephen C: Works perfectly, simply and easy! Good job! thanks!
  • (2022-07-20) zen: I like the simplicity but sometimes it seems to fail to remember the dark settings for some websites. And there is no a switch to turn it off so it has to be done by disabling the extension.
  • (2022-06-08) kai: can you please add site ignore list? it breaks some sites which already have night style by default, the colors become inverted.
  • (2022-05-22) Wayne Leo: lack global switch
  • (2022-05-09) AM S: Have been using this for over 6 months now and haven't faced any issue. Be it any website, I can custom my night mode view and next time it picks up the same (mostly). Happy with the extension, easy to use.

  • (2021-04-02) takut 42: great addon
  • (2021-03-15) Darek a: Works great, any chance to have a keyboard shortcut for switching between modes ?
  • (2021-03-10) Filterblock: best
  • (2021-01-28) Yubran Onelink: It's the best by far.

  • (2020-10-28) Anh Nguyen Tuan: nice extention.Can I acess your source code ?
  • (2020-10-12) Jaspreet Singh: So, I have been using this extension for few years now. But lately if you invert the colors ( number 1: dark mode) the websites start lagging when you scroll. I'm sry to say that i have to uninstall it. PD: Has been working in IT for the past 8 years.
  • (2020-10-09) victor yu: it dose't work at all
  • (2020-09-10) Tempo: Not working
  • (2020-08-31) Alex Zander Soriano: amazing!!
  • (2020-08-11) Kazzy Crimson: So far this is the best dark mode that I have used. The only reason for not giving the extension a 5* rating is due to the inversion of colour on some images and videos. If this could be corrected then this would be perfect!
  • (2020-08-08) Zizaco Zizuini: I was looking specifically for a extension that did "invert(100%) hue-rotate(180deg)". Thank you! This is awesome : )
  • (2020-08-02) ashley phillips: it does not work. it did nothing
  • (2020-07-31) Mark.Nf3: Great.
  • (2020-07-21) Md Akram Hossain Shaikh: good
  • (2020-07-17) marcelo magno: it does not work properly with youtube. i can not see videos on full screen
  • (2020-07-14) Geovanni Serrano: legit dark theme. great!
  • (2020-04-10) Adrian Santesteban: It's good, but I wish I could easily turn it off during the day quickly without having to go to extensions to disable it only to enable it at night. Seems like a pretty obvious feature to have. Even better, have it come on at a certain time everyday. Plus, some keyboard shortcuts are badly needed as well. You might want to setup a donation so that people can donate for your hard work in making it better.
  • (2020-02-29) K Nad: Easy to use, many option, nice color, 5 star
  • (2020-02-20) anurag patle: Best so far.
  • (2020-02-09) Alex Rosenthal: Only one I have found that is super simple and works great. THANK YOU!!! How do I donate? totally worth $10 : )
  • (2020-01-06) Ahkando: It doesn't work for me. Tried refreshing, tapping the icon and everything but nope it stays white
  • (2020-01-03) vivek mukesh: loved it
  • (2019-12-30) Zoltan Torok: It works and websites do change, but if I want to change default mode, it glitches. For example, I've changed default mode to 3 - light, but low contrast and I've been through some wikipedia pages. The button says 3, but the option is 1. If I press the button 4 times to get back to 3, it's option 3, but next link I click is back in 1, claiming it's 3. Can you fix this?
  • (2019-12-22) Chunnu Mishra: grateful i like dark mode night reader access show change dark mode love i can strong chrome web store make thanks you wow extensions already ready ily..
  • (2019-12-15) Mye Flatley: Very helpful to persons with eye cataracts.
  • (2019-12-14) Andrej Novák: jedno z najlepších rozšírení. Nespomaľuje načítavanie stránok ako iné dark rozšírenia.
  • (2019-12-07) Mustafa Özhan: It is great extension and best of its category so far i tried. Only missing is a shortcut, i do not want to go with mouse and click always. After that it will definitely deserve 5 stars
  • (2019-12-04) Flavgü Martes: A dark mode, with no useless features. Works on all sites, even opened pdf files, and keeps the natural hue (most of the time). The most interesting feature is the control of the contrast. The best dark mode extension for chromium, and I've tested several.

    Wonderful! It works perfectly. It even saved my setting PER SITE! I have a feature request: - Could you please add a keyboard shortcut? - Also, would it be feasible to change chrome's window theme to a dark theme upon changing into dark mode?
  • (2018-11-22, v:2018.7.30.1) Nadine Siegfried: persist mode-changes
    It would be really nice to be able to create a list of websites where the addon isn't in action/ is in mode 4 per default. I know it saves the settings for the current chrome-session, but it would be really nice to persist those settings. I love this addon, can't imagine working without it anymore!
  • (2018-11-11, v:2018.7.30.1) Swift Alex: Default mode error
    When set the default mode to mode 4, some site still showing the mode 1. like this one:https://item.jd.com/100000205012.html
  • (2018-10-25, v:2018.7.30.1) Kaiz Gutta: Desperately need Exactly this for Android phones also. Please confirm.
    Dear Developer, Such a wonderful Util Extension ( i just dont work without it ) Pray tell if you can make it available exactly the same thing for Android phones so that the news pages will be inverted and the pictures will not simultaneously. There is no such thing as yet only an option to Invert colors of text ( which even inverts all the Pictures with it ) kaizad
