What is Dark Mode?

The Dark mode trend has been all over social media lately, users have been asking and submitting reports for the enabling of Dark mode feature on Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and so many other platforms. If this feature is all new to you, well you are at the right place.
Dark mode is simply a feature that inverts the color of a platform, not necessarily inverting all the colors but specific colors that makes the platform very sensitive to the eyes. You already know that most platforms come in a white background and black text, this feature changes the white background to black and the black text to a white color. Making it less disturbing to the eyes especially at night, this is one of the many reasons people enjoy using the dark mode feature. It does not hurt the eyes even in a dark environment.
Some other android browsers already come with dark mode theme such as the Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft edge, Uc browser etc. Luckily for us Google has heard our complaints and enabled dark mode feature for all new versions of Google Chrome browsers.
