Dark Theme Everywhere

Description from extension meta

Darkens bright pages for easier night time reading. Unofficial improvement of 'Nicer Inverter'.

Image from store Dark Theme Everywhere
Description from store **New in Version 6** Manually toggling a site's theme now adds or removes it from your exceptions list, so you don't need to re-click whenever you refresh! **New in Version 5** Subtly darkens photos and media embeds (you can turn this off from the Options page). **New in Version 4** Add a list of exceptions from the default theme (eg. "facebook.com"). I was tempted to call this "Nicest Inverter", but it doesn't actually invert anything. It gives you a dark page, no matter what! Improvements from Nicer Inverter: ● Dark-ifies pages aggressively, so you're much less likely to come across pages with bright patches. ● Dark-ifies pages *by default*, so you don't need to click the extension's button on every page load. ● Allows you to toggle dark styles on and off without reloading the page. ● Optionally darkens photos and media embeds. There are a lot of inverters out there, and many of them are great. I'm using Dark Reader[1] right now, and honestly, it's better than this for most use cases. BUT! Some pages on the internet are dark by default. When you invert a dark page, it becomes light. AGH MY EYES! This extension will *always* give you a dark background. You can change the default theme from "Dark" to "Light" by going to Tools -> Extensions and clicking the "Options" link under Dark Theme Everywhere. You can toggle the theme with a hotkey by going to Tools -> Extensions and clicking the "Keyboard shortcuts" link at the bottom. Now that your browser is nice and dark-themed, you might notice an annoying white flash between pages. It's a known bug that's being tracked in Issue 1373[2] and Issue 126341[3]. I wrote another extension to reduce the flicker[4], but the problem will exist to some degree until it's fixed in Chromium. Enjoy! Licensed under MIT.

  • (2020-07-04) Saptarshi Nanda: It did not worked on this link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wave. God knows?!
  • (2020-02-19) Troy Tempesta: please ad an on/off button would help sooo much
  • (2019-08-04) No Place Man: Works really well. In fact a little too well. Sometimes it's a hassle because I have to deactivate it more times than the times I actually use it. Therefore, of course it's missing some tweaks and adjustments. But I guess I can't really ask for it to be adjusted for every single site. That could be solved if they just added the option to "work only on some sites" aside to the "in every site except..." that's already implemented
  • (2019-07-28) Chris Hager: I tried it on three sites: Facebook, Amazon and Google (Drive/Gmail/Calendar) and it hides critical elements (navigation and other features) on every page. I assume this is unintentional, but it makes the extension unusable for me.
  • (2019-05-20) Soti Coto: Sure... it makes things dark that are normally forcibly light... But it also blacks out all theme elements on pages, most images on pages... Some pages are rendered completely useless because there is nothing but text on a black expanse. I've had to make a massive array of exceptions for the simple reason that so many pages just don't work right with this app. And other pages, like this one, just plain don't work with it at all. Pretty much I'm only using it because I haven't found a better alternative yet....
  • (2019-05-02) Damien Holland: Doesn't properly work. Websites flash in white default for a split-second before going to dark. On some sites there are white artifacts (Youtube) that shouldn't be there.
  • (2019-02-27) Obo the Hobo: Works really well, however doesn't work well on many websites. A lot of images disappear, and any website that already has a dark theme (youtube, reddit, etc.) are usually better with the built in dark theme than this. But you can blacklist sites, which is nice. Overall would recommend.
  • (2019-02-14) Gabe G: Works and is simple. 11/10 for reading articles when combined with the disable-html extension.
  • (2018-12-18) Sheldon Hull: Good performance, however, no customization so I found it didn't handle the dark colors as well as darkreader (which I've been exploring alternatives to due to the performance).
  • (2018-10-29) Jeffrey Moravec: This is te suce right here
  • (2018-10-18) GEO Design: zero settaggi e non va su whatsapp
  • (2018-08-24) Ted B: The settings are unstable.I remove exceptions that appeared out of nowhere and they come back later. The default is useless.
  • (2018-08-14) ismet soner: it also darkens necessary tabs and makes them invisible.
  • (2018-07-31) Alexander Artamonov: Amazing extension, works nicely with Salesforce.com and JIRA
  • (2018-05-20) Tenacious Minion: Wish I had found this sooner. Works the way I need it to. Thanks!
  • (2018-05-18) DK Mage: Works like a charm!
  • (2018-04-25) James HYi: It doesn't work right on a lot of sights. On some it's great but on Youtube for example the screen turns white on part of it. Opposite of what I wanted.
  • (2018-04-01) Sharad Jain: Looks great. Blacks are just a little too dark. However, it defaults all pages to dark regardless of the preferences currently. I've removed and re-added the extension, making sure to delete C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\nibjplbnmmklkfnkpecgbffkifmdbjed\ I also checked C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\nibjplbnmmklkfnkpecgbffkifmdbjed\6.0.0_0\options.js and it reflected the preferences i set! (default theme = light) Version of chrome = 65.0.3325.181 OS = Windows 7 64-bit, Intel HD Graphics 3000, display fully calibrated
  • (2018-03-28) Djone Tan: awesome.. the best af all dark theme
  • (2018-03-15) A.N. Rahman: Please update it. It looks very promising
  • (2018-03-06) Robert Aries: Great extension. Does what says on packet. Color scheme is awesome. DOESNT WORK WITH SHOW MY HOMEWORK ;(
  • (2018-02-06) Proud of its Power: Only one issue: On some pages, it'll hide some images. However, the dark theme is toggleable, so you're able to read the image for as long as you need to by turning it off, then you just turn it back on again.
  • (2018-01-27) Junior Heptachords: Works very well everywhere!
  • (2018-01-10) Emerson Silva: Funciona muito bem em 32 e 64 bits. Muito bom para leitura e descanso dos olhos. Recomendado!
  • (2017-12-21) Loïc Croizer: Ne fonctionne pas comme prevu sur tout les sites, parfois des images disparaissent... Sur twitch.tv c'est carrement les steams qui son remplacer par le fond noir alors que le principe du site est de regarder ces steams, reste cool sur les sites de lectures d'article, mais a ne pas activer partout sous peine de se retrouver avec certains éléments important manquants, mon conseil? le mettre en desactivé sur tout les sites par default et l'activer sur tout les sites un a un et verifier que tout reste utilisable...

  • (2020-04-17, v:6.0.0) Krooper Bigman: QOL Suggestion
    I like the feature that automatically adds the current site to exceptions when the extension button is pressed, but could you edit the feature to add the entire domain rather than just the webpage? Alternatively, add it as an option in the right click menu. Loving it otherwise, keep it up!

    hi on google sheets the text inside the cells doesn't turn white, so everything goes black
  • (2018-06-24, v:6.0.0) Konstantin K.: Enabling on sunset/sunrise
    I second the timed enabling suggestion. It would be great to toggle extension on/off at sunset/sunrise.
  • (2018-01-31, v:6.0.0) Lasse H: StackExchange sites
    When using Dark Theme everywhere, the green tick for accepted answers disappears in dark mode.
  • (2018-01-10, v:6.0.0) john fred: Timed enabling
    it could be nice if we can set time for when it should activate.. For example; from 7:00AM - 5:00PM is is disabled and automatically enable past that time.
  • (2018-01-10, v:6.0.0) john fred: themes
    can we edit how the site is colorized? its really hard to read other elements with the default colorization.
  • (2018-01-10, v:6.0.0) john fred: Toggling
    It could be nice if you can toggle it using keyboard shortcuts.. It's really tiring having to reach for the mouse just to toggle it
  • (2017-12-17, v:6.0.0) YouTube
    Text (in comments, descriptions and some others) is still dark when dark mode is turned on, meaning it's almost invisible.
  • (2017-12-03, v:6.0.0) Sirius Carter: Darken Media?
    I choose this to darken white chat backgrounds. It also blackens the streaming media. Well, actually all of the images even with the Option Unchecked. What am I doing wrong?
  • (2017-11-17, v:6.0.0) Theme Type
    I was able to change the theme type once when I first got it, but how do you change between them all?
  • (2017-11-02, v:6.0.0) Tim mi: Need better way
    I don't want things dark in the daytime, just at night. Is there a way, other than going into Options, to disable it? Also, an exclusions list would be nice (as in DarkReader, by far the most flexible, but their hues aren't quite as nice as this one). Exclusions are good for when, for example, you install one that handles facebook better, but you still want to use it for other sites.
