Image from store Dark Theme for Google™
Description from store "Dark Theme for Google" extension brings a customizable dark theme to some of the Google services such as Google Search and Google Images. The extension supports all localized Google domains. Using this extension you can customize many colors including background and link colors on the options page of the extension if you don't like the default configuration. Features: 1. You can define a period for the extension to automatically activate the dark theme 2. You can append your custom CSS rules to the default dark theme from the options page 3. You can ask the extension to automatically follow the system color scheme (turn dark theme on when the preferred color scheme is dark and turn it off when not) (this feature uses the JavaScript's matchMedia method to install a listener for prefers-color-scheme). 4. Supports "Calendar" and "Messages" services (as of version 0.5.0) -- This extension is an independent open-source project and is not related to Google Inc in anyways.

  • (2022-06-07) Stealthbat N-A: Does not work for the Chrome Web Store page (aka Chrome .google .com). The Chrome Web Store is a localized Google domain and is a Google Product. I honestly don't need a dark theme for the other google sites as Google has already released their own dark mode for those sites. Please find a way to apply dark mode to the Chrome Web Store page as it's is WAY TOO BRIGHT! Thank you.
  • (2022-03-11) Manka Huszar: Love ittttt!!
  • (2022-03-08) Louan Fontenele: Please add support to gmail, the native dark theme is horrible
  • (2022-02-22) S: The links color is not working anymore. The links will now use the main font color instead of the dedicated links color setting. Using google now is highly annoying.
  • (2022-01-24) Sophia Tokarska: THAT WORKS ON GOOGLE TRANSLATE!
  • (2021-10-09) Matt S: Does the job, even Translate is dark, * * * * *
  • (2021-09-24) John Croft: Finally google themselves have added a dark mode, this extension basically is just for color customizing now
  • (2021-09-08) Serge Fedorow: This is only for Search :( Please add the Google Cloud Platform Console pagers to duck mode.
  • (2021-09-05) Max Overpower: I like the ease of customisation, and the defaults do a good job. That said, I believe there needs to be an option to disable the extension for google search (just like there is one for all other affected URLs), because Google rolled out a built-in dark theme for search results, which I would argue has a better color pallet. I ended up copying Google's own colors into this extension, as I still want to keep it for Google Translate. And a small pet peeve: picking colors with a hex code instead of RGB values would be a bit easier.
  • (2021-08-14) William Duncan: Absolutely great. Unlike other extensions which will do a bad job at inverting the colours on the a page, this extension injects custom CSS that the author has written. I am just amazed by how many Google services this extension works for. The reason why this is 100% 5 stars from me is that it has an option to add your own CSS. This makes it extremely easy to update and even customise any page on Google. I've been looking for an extension that does this for about 2 years. Unless it somehow gets totally broken, I won't be using anything else.
  • (2021-08-08) Asjad Edits: Best extension for dark theme!
  • (2021-07-20) Leonardo Vasconcelos: Thank you! U saved my eye LOL
  • (2021-07-18) Alex Palisse: Doesn't work on incognito windows. Help?
  • (2021-07-15) Philippe Léger: Google should contact the developer and pay to integrate this into their real products Thanks!
  • (2021-07-05) Geoffrey Colman: A fantastic solution that works well for me with a certain subset of Google products services I use frequently (Search, Translate, Photos), but is completely worthless for a bunch that are equally or more important to me (Docs, Sheets, Slides, Calendar, Drive - basically the entire G Suite).
  • (2021-07-01) 私は退屈です: served me well for a long time, but now that google supports dark mode natively, I bid farewell, thanks ;)
  • (2021-06-29) Mehdi Mhenni: Aujourd'hui un message c'est apparu dans la page d'acceuil Google : "Vous utilisez désormais le thème sombre Vous pouvez réactiver le thème clair à tout moment dans les paramètres de la recherche Google" Eh oui ! Google a ajouté le thème sombre !!! Donc cette extension n'est plus utile Mais quand même un hommage pour vous <3
  • (2021-05-10) gabrielLF: good
  • (2021-04-21) Thomas Beckingham: One of the better dark extensions in the web store, but it doesn't support Google Drive unfortunately. It would be perfect if it did that!
  • (2021-04-20) Jesper Hustad: Have you been endlessly looking for a ACTUALLY GOOD dark mode for google search. You know how duckduckgo has a built in dark mode and wish you could have that for google? Happy to report your search is over, this is it. It looks good on search, images and translations (which are my most used at least) A lot of work has been put in to making this work reliably, most global dark extensions will screw up in some places, but this one just works so well i had almost forgotten it. Highly recommend 👍
  • (2021-04-18) Laurentiu Macovei: does not with google sheets
  • (2021-04-03) Eliezer Vilela: O melhor até agora. 😍 😍 😍
  • (2021-04-03) A.B.: This is brilliant! It literally gives a dark theme for web and image search which makes it easy on the eyes at night.
  • (2021-03-27) Nicdashie: Doesn't work...
  • (2021-03-16) Alex Mc: Better than other Dark Mode themes
  • (2021-03-12) Anton Dospekhov: The customization of the color scheme is pain in the back. The color picker requires you to switch formats each time you open it and you can't even copy/paste hex colors. And scrolling to the bottom of the list to 'Save' preferences is also nice touch.
  • (2021-03-10) Томас: Thank you very much! I was very bothered by the light theme of Google translator in the dark.
  • (2021-03-05) AquaPlxyzz YT: This Is The Best Extension For Dark mode On google!

  • (2021-02-26) floris devreese: works awsome, can set my background to full black. Also fast. You don't notice that this extension is running in the background
  • (2021-02-23) Zachary Yaro: Works great, but I wish I could make it just follow my system dark theme setting (via `prefers-color-scheme`) rather than having its own schedule.
  • (2021-02-16) Angel Dimitrov: Custom CSS rules dasnt work after update 15 February.
  • (2021-02-13) STOP PRE-ORDERING VIDEO GAMES!: FINALLY! A dark mode for Google search that does actually work and not half work, sorta, but 50% is blacked out... it actually works. Thank you, I will report any issues to try to help. Just be aware this is the only *fully working (as far I can tell so far) dark mode for Google search, I've tried dozens and dozens but they're all half baked.
  • (2021-02-01) zBlxberスマ: Good extension :D
  • (2021-01-29) ITAC85: Looks terrible. The link and text colors look awful.
  • (2021-01-28) Arik Cool: OMG it is just a battery and eye slight saver! You can costumize anything like selections colour text colour and lots of thing, check it out on your own. Thank you for the creators! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!

  • (2021-01-21) Bulletz: Doesn't work at all.
  • (2021-01-19) Blood Hit: When using google translate handwriting feature the cursor is completely black making it unusable on black background.(still not fixed after almost a year) When using google translate text to speech icon is the same color as background.

  • (2020-12-21) パル子Paruko: Great Extension that adds something that should already be there. Only downside is that the Google Doodles are also Inverted in color.
  • (2020-12-20) Ebrahim Elhadidy: Doesn't work for me!
  • (2020-12-18) Bartek Paczkowski: Works fine. It'd be nice if you could add GCP support.

  • (2018-05-27, v:0.1.7) Magenta: Not working?
    I've had this theme before and it worked perfectly, however I reset all my settings and re-addedit and it's not working anymore? None of the background colors changed to how they were before. Please fix this, this is my favorite theme!!!
  • (2018-05-16, v:0.1.7) Andrea Elle Ange: Translate
    When the theme is applicated to Google Translate, there is no difference in appearance of active language button and language buttons which are not active. All of them looks the same.
