Chrome, finally, got a Dark Mode. Or at least that’s what this looks like.

New themes uploaded on Feb. 11, credited to “The Chrome team” allow you to paint the browser black, yellow, slate blue, rose pink and many more hues. These themes not only adjust the color of the menu bars and interface, but also slap a coat of color to the default Google home page.

Whether or not this is the true Dark Mode that was rumored for Chrome last month (Jan. 2019) is to be determined. If such a Dark Mode is coming, it would be more than welcome, as the Jet Black theme doesn’t change the colors of your menus. Adding the theme is relatively simple, but switching them could be easier. Here’s what you need to know:

How to use Chrome’s themes

1. Navigate to



2. Select a theme.


3. Click Add to Chrome.


4. To switch to a different theme, repeat steps 1, 2 and 3.

5. To revert to default, navigate to chrome://settings/appearance and click “Reset to default.”


Congrats, you’ve got the power to color Chrome based on your preference.
