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.

  • (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) Zander Gaming: 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.
  • (2019-11-21) hussein: very good then orignal google dark mode
  • (2019-10-08) CJ Settle: This app works very well
  • (2019-10-04) Stefano Bisio: This will save my eves at work. I work with a cloud platform so I'm in the browser the whole day. The dark mode doesn't disrupt icons, images, videos, buttons, or text fields, which is what we need. The reduced contrast only is a true gem in some situations. Other extensions work on/off on all sites at once, but who wants it? This one works on a site-by-site basis and remembers your choices, perfect.
  • (2019-06-17) bionic zephyr: excellent!!
  • (2019-06-04) Mark Machado: I had another high contrast extension but it would invert the colors of pictures and graphics in general. This would make pages really awkward to look at. I found this little gem which will invert the colors on pages but not mess with pictures (such as avatar photos in forums and such). Thank you!
  • (2019-05-20) Carlos M. Vélez S.: Aplica colores automáticos que muchas veces no son adecuados (texto negro sobre un café bastante oscuro).
  • (2019-05-03) Toki Nogami: works well for me for most websites i visit and like that I can toggle the dark modes :D
  • (2019-04-26) Alexandre Malaquias: Excelent!
  • (2019-04-19) Ramon: cool
  • (2019-04-04) Nietzchan Jake Lelis: good view in every website
  • (2019-03-14) Endin Marc: la meilleure appli car elle inverse les couleurs mais epargne les photos enfin presque toute, c'est la seule appli qui arrive a faire ca!en plus l'icone en haut permets de switcher facilement et ca devient une habitude d'optimiser son affichage dark ou normal
  • (2019-03-09) The Gamez: its nice
  • (2019-02-16) Random punjab: everything is fine but i cant press cross on popups on youtube videos in its 1st and 2nd level plz solve this as soon as possible its very irritating
  • (2019-02-15) Romain Louvet: The best dark mode IMO. Simple and doing the job. Just click on the icon to switch the mode you prefer for the current page.

    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
