Google Chrome is the American tech giant’s internet browser that is incredibly popular.
The software is easily the most popular on both desktops and mobile, meaning it surpasses the likes of Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox and Safari in terms of monthly users.
Google regularly updates Chrome with numbered versions that introduce new improvements.
Chrome 73 recently debuted for users and on Mac, Windows and Linux and boasts a number of fresh features.
The most notable is surely the programme’s new dark mode, although it is currently only accessible for Mac owners.
Chrome’s black theme not only presents users with an altered aesthetic, but it also makes viewing content easier on the human eye.
With dark mode enabled, the software’s tabs, Omnibar, bookmarks bar and more adopt the altered design.
Overall, the new theme looks extremely similar to Chrome’s Incognito mode.
However, it does not adopt the same privacy features as Incognito, meaning browser history, cookies and information entered into forms will be saved.
The biggest visual difference between Chrome running in dark mode and Incognito is the latter’s logo that appears in the top right-hand side of the window.
If Mac users want to enable Chrome’s best new feature, they will need to ensure they have the operating system’s dark mode enabled.
In order to turn this on, users should head to their computer’s system preferences.
Then go to general and press the “dark” button next to the appearance setting.
Once macOS’s dark mode has been enabled, Chrome 73 will automatically conform to the visual style.
This is the only way to enable Chrome dark mode; a toggle to turn the feature on is not present within the browser itself.
Unfortunately, the new function is not yet available for Windows users.
However, it is expected the tool will arrive for the Microsoft operating system soon.
Google Chrome 73 started rolling out to users on Tuesday, March 12.
