Dark Night Mode is a Google Chrome extension which can turn all the websites you visit on the Internet to Dark Mode or Night Mode. In simple words, it will make all website blackish so that bright white color do not strain your eyes at night.
You can go to the google chrome store and click "add extension" option and it will be automatically installed into your browser
Absolutely nop. Unlike the other extensions, we do not invert colors, instead we use a specialized algorithm to change the colors of the site in real-time. Inverting colors is a very poor technique as it makes black colored websites white and thsu defeating the purpose of a darkmode.
Yes. Nearly all other extensions have this flashes of white color while loading a website. This is due to the default background of chrome which is white and also because it takes time to change the color of each site in real time. We use a unique technique to blacken the background even before the chrome starts loading the site, thus solving the flash-of-white issue. This issue is not there in 99% of the websites, but in some rare cases it may flash while color because of poor website designs.
Unfortunately, No. Our extensions only work on the desktop version of Google Chrome. So, it will not work on your phone, atleast as of now.
We are currently unable to support any more browsers as of now due to acute shortage of time and money. There are some complex ways to make it work on Firefox, but it is complicated. In short, it doesnt work in firefox or other browsers as of now. If this extension becomes incredibly popular, we will release a version designed for Firefox and other browsers.
Go to chrome menu by clicking the three dots at top right corner, choose more tools option, click extension, then find the extension named Dark Night Mode and then untick the "enabled" option.
At the top right corner of your google chrome browser, there will be an icon which looks like this . Click on it and a small window will pop up. Click on the ON button and your extension will start working./p>
If you switch on the auto mode, then the darkmode will automatically turn on at night 8:00PM and turn off at morning 6:00AM. It is a scheduler for those who want to use normal mode during the daytime and dark mode at night. Currently, you cannot change this timming because it was too complicated to make a custom time option.
If you adjust the slider under the brightness option, it will change the screen-brightness of your browser. At its maximum, it can increase the brightness by 100% more than what your device allows, and also it can darken the screen 100% below what your computer normally allows. The default setting is at 0% at the middle of the slider.
In somecases, you may not want a particular website to use the darkmode. So, you can turn on the whitelist option after going to that website and afterwards darkmode will be disabled on those particular websites. This is an incredibly useful feature as you wouldn't need to disable the plugin every time you visit that site.
This feature is currerntly under construction and is not available for public use. This option exist in the settings-panel of our plugin and it works as the total opposite of the whitelist feature. If blacklist option is turned on, then the darkmode will only be used on the websites which were whitelisted. This can be useful for few people who want darkmode to work on only selected websites. For most people it is not useful, this is the reason why there is only a single list which either work as a whitelist or a blacklist.
This feature is currently under construction
Click on the Report option and fill the form. Or you can just go to Reports page and write it there.
We currently displays all images as-is because it is a processor intensive process to detect every image and determine if it is bright or not. We tried to find a solution for it, but there was nothing much we could do without slowing down all other sites, so we decided it was more optimal to just leave the images as-is. This means that sites which uses white background images will look white, and we can do nothing about it.
The number of sites which use images as background are very low as it is kindof an outdated techique. Many websites still use it for certain parts of the site like background of menu buttons etc. If bright images bothers you, just slide down the brightness knob and it should decrease the brightness of everything in a site including images.
There are some websites which use a type of background color called linearGradient, which means that it shows all shades of colors inbetween two colors. Chrome was unable to detect such colors for our algorithm to work. The number of sites which does this is very low.
It was not worth it to cause performance hit on 100% of websites for solving the issue of 0.1% sites, so it was more optimal to show the sites with such background color as-is. If it bothers you, just slide down the brightness knob, and it should decrease the brightness of everything including lineargradient background colors
Creating a good universal dark mode which works on most sites is hard. And, it is never going to be perfect due to several websites which uses non-standard way of coding or structuring their site. We were surprised to see even big popular websites do this. We have added fixes for big popular sites, but nothing can be done about unpopular sites.
You can mainly do four things.
Firstly, you can do monetary donations. Currently, this project is being funded by my personal savings, and I cannot afford to fund this forever, so even small contributions may help. I could have easily made this a paid plugin considering that it is way better than even the paid plugins out there, but I didn't want to block such a useful plugin behind a paywall. That is the reason why it exists as a free opensource plugin. The thing is that, everything costs money and it is difficult to continue development without enough funds.
Secondly, you can contribute to our codebase. You can contribute the native css darkmode of a particular popular site. We will review your submission and will add it to the extension in the next version.
Thirdly, you can share our extension's links with your friends on the social media or recommend it to more people as it will get better and better as more and more people use it.
And finally, you can give us good ratings/reviews in the chrome webstore.
We will let you know soon!
