Chrome’s Dark Mode in macOS Mojave to come by early 2019
In early September this year, it was rumored that Google would be launching the latest version of Chrome with support for Dark Mode on macOS Mojave in December. But Chrome users were left disappointed, as Chrome 71 that was released last week did not include support for Dark Mode.
For the unaware, Dark Mode instantly changes all the compatible apps to a dark color palette when enabled in System Preferences. In other words, dark colors are used in place of light colors in the user interface, for instance, such as the menus, tabs, bookmark bar, Omnibox, status bar, and dialog boxes.
However, a recently submitted code change by a Google developer on a post on Reddit (via MacRumors) suggests that support for macOS dark mode will be arriving in a future release of Chrome. The new code change submitted in Chromium hints at system-level Dark Mode.
According to MacRumors, changes made in Chromium usually roll out every six weeks or so, which means that Dark Mode for macOS is unlikely to make it for Chrome 72 release due in mid-to-late January. This implies that Dark Mode may likely come with Chrome 73 sometime in March 2019.
While Dark Mode has yet to be supported on Google’s Chrome, the search giant’s other service, YouTube is already supporting Dark Mode.
