  • (2023-11-01) Jacob: thank you now I don't have to be blinded
  • (2023-10-28) Kevin O'Hear Valesi: With a click of the button, this extension made the Canvas's glaringly strenuous page much easier to look at. IT WORKS. With that said, certain sub-text (think descriptions and instructions) doesn't seem to contrast itself enough from the dark background, and may be hard to read. I've found myself highlighting this text when needed, or squinting closely at it, but the extension does it's job in making Canvas less stressful in dark environments, and a simple ctrl+a solves the contrast issue.
  • (2023-10-16) William Flores Jr: Huge blessing and major L for Canvas. The app allows you to change the appearance, so should the web browser. 5/5
  • (2023-09-23) rose ibarra: I love it so much! I was diagnosed with astigmatism a few years back and I work late into the day so the only time I can work on homework is at night. It's sad that Canvas has not thought of a dark mode for desktop / web when many applications have already. The only issue I have is when I try sending an email to my professors via inbox, NONE of the text is visible, all of the text is still a dark colored font and it matches the dark themed background. The only way for me to read the messages is to highlight the text and read from there, I wish there was a way that the font color was white as well. That is my only constructive feedback, thank you for this extension!!!

  • (2023-09-09) 緋紅乂誘魅乂母牛: It might not support your school but it is easy to download the source code and include your school
  • (2023-08-29) Dylan Gorman: Must have, and should come standard. Dark mode everything.

  • (2023-01-17) June Dunn: W extension
  • (2022-12-08) Isaac Medina: Thanks, appreciate your hard work and sacrifice for my convenience, you a real one
  • (2022-11-15) bocks: The dark mode works really good. I only have a slight problem, I wish the calendar event outlines kept their original color and weren't all white.
  • (2022-10-10) Nykiah: So great for my eyes!
  • (2022-09-27) Kayla McDonnell: thank you for making this!
  • (2022-04-12) Kriss Kirk: Works great, just wish Speedgrader would show in dark mode. Moving to bright white from the regular dark is quire jarring.
  • (2022-03-30) Ryan Skinner: there are a few spots where the text can be hard to read, and when the advanced UI setting is enabled a lot more becomes hard to read however aside from those few problems it is very good
  • (2022-03-14) Jordan Stevenson: Works perfectly, thanks!!!!!!!!!
  • (2022-02-23) tannerz: my eye balls thank you
  • (2022-02-21) Jeffrey Henebury: Much easier on the eyes and worked with a single refresh. Thank you!
  • (2022-02-18) Seth Beckett: Thank youuuu this is great. Dark mode 4 lyfe
  • (2022-02-03) mia l: This extensions is great for the most part! There is not a lot of light parts at all, but sometimes there's too many dark parts. In some pages, there is black text over the dark gray background so it's hard to see exactly what's going on. In addition to that, writing messages in the inbox are a little troubling because I cannot see the options for who I can send it too unless I hover over the options individually. Again, this is still a great extension!
  • (2022-01-21) Machi: FINALLYYYY THANK YOU SO MUCH
  • (2022-01-13) Rachel Moore: thank you for reducing my homework headaches from the light :)
  • (2021-12-26) filthy stinky possum: CONTAINS MALWARE! This extension made my google searches randomly switch to bing searches
  • (2021-10-10) Lazuli Ngai: This is great as the bright whiteness of canvas always hurted my eyes. There are some things that need work like the discussion page where replies to the main discussion are in white boxes with white text, making them impossible to read. There are also small parts that still uses the initial whiteness like on the dashboard activity page, theres buttons on the top that are still in white with black outlines where I expect the opposite. This is just me nitpicking and not bigger issues like the discussion page being unreadable using this extension, however it's pretty good on the other pages.
  • (2021-10-07) Umut Çoban: Great extension for the eyes! The dev added my school's canvas website to the links in a few days, and i can finally use it. Thank you so much!
  • (2021-09-26) Brian Limbert: The function is basically there. Really helpful and saves my eyes. However, It still need some improvements such as dark mode in the discussion tab so that people can comfortably do the discussion assignment. Hope you can fix it soon to make it perfect. Thanks!
  • (2021-09-22) MARK JOSHUA MORANTE: Life is Good, But it can be Better. Thank You ! ! !
  • (2021-09-18) Bethany Buller: I love this, however there are certain parts that remain white and are impossible to see. I think that is the only necessary change. otherwise I'm in love.
  • (2021-09-12) Braden Rafter: Its good, but needs some work. Make calendar items the color of the class instead of the outline, and change the text color of the assignment name when you click on a calendar item, since it is the same color as the background and is invisible.
  • (2021-09-07) Kellen Jenkins: Makes doing schoolwork easy on the eyes, amazing!
  • (2021-09-01) Amaris Suhun: LIFE SAVER
  • (2021-09-01) Kamran Irannejad: I was tired of being blinded everytime I went on canvas, now it looks great! If you are a fan of dark mode, you will be very satisfied! Not too dark, and not too light.
  • (2021-08-31) Luky: I like the extension overall, but is there any way you can make discussion boards have a dark grey background or something darker as it's hard to read
  • (2021-08-19) Alyssa Huang: Looks great; Would love if in the calendar the assignments were the class colors entirely, instead of being black with the class color as the outline; Would also like if the dark mode applied to the agenda. Thank you for making this!
  • (2021-06-08) Charles Isaac Calizo: good for my taste, not too bright nor too dark
  • (2021-04-29) SimpleQuantum: Worked better than any of the other addons for Canvas, used a grey rather than black which I enjoyed
  • (2021-04-27) jax the husky: i LOVE THIS SO MUCH... like all the other extensions i tried to use just messed with the background element to make it black but this one like affects how everything looks absolutely beautiful- maybe i wont have canvas burned into another screen with this X333
  • (2021-04-11) Ace is Tired: Works amazingly! It is compatible with the list view and this is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you once again!
  • (2021-04-09) Jill Williams: The calendar could probably have the text as the set classroom color since the white is kind of hard to read but I can finally do projects without burning my eyes! I love it!
  • (2021-04-03) Fresh Marcent: Works great! I love how this one is compatible with most college-canvas websites.
  • (2021-03-09) MrDestroyer15: hell yeah dude! This is exactly what i was looking for, other extensions either didn't work or were super buggy, this one works just right and looks great!
  • (2021-01-04) Divine: Amazing, works perfectly! Other dark canvas modes were too dark, but this one is just right. I highly recommend it

  • (2021-04-22, v:1.0.8) Shashanka Gowdar: Extension not working for my canvas
    Hi this extension doesn't work for me. Does it have to do anything with the fact that my school's canvas ends in .edu instead of .com?
  • (2020-11-02, v:1.0.0) Will Koeppen: Highlights + Text boxes
    Any text box makes the text light gray, and the background white. It gets really hard to read, and its not really dark mode. The same happens when something is highlighted by mousing over it. Other than that it looks really clean, but these are big issues.
