Google Chrome is the American tech giant’s internet client that is harnessed across the globe.
The browser is regularly updated by the Mountain View company, meaning fresh features and improvements are consistently added.
The newest version of Chrome, 73, released during the week and its headline feature was certainly a new dark mode that is currently only available for Mac computers.
Essentially, the theme will ensure the programme’s bookmarks bar, Omnibar, tabs and more adopt an aesthetic that is easier on user eyes.
The design of the dark theme looks incredibly similar to Chrome’s Incognito mode.
The biggest difference between the two is the latter has stricter privacy settings and an Incognito logo within a window.
Dark mode can only be enabled if the Mac user turns on macOS’s system-wide dark mode.
This means there is not a toggle within Chrome itself for the feature.
While the dark mode is certain to be popular with users of the internet client, version 73 also introduced another handy improvement.
Now, Google Chrome will support media keys on numerous new PC keyboards.
This means if you are watching a video for instance, users are now able to pause the video even if the programme is running in the background.
Moreover, support for “previous track,” “next track,” “seek backward,” and “seek forward” will be offered in addition to mute.
Initially, Mac, Windows and Chrome OS users will be able to make use of the software’s media key support.
Those running Linux systems will receive it later.
Google Chrome version 73 is available to download right now.
