        Looking forward to see that dark mode (I'm using Chromium). While I tested a couple extensions with that purpose, none were much successful on the job, with a good amount of websites looking weird.

        But that is only part of the equation of a truly dark mode desktop. In the office front things are not looking good. LibreOffice doesn't work good with dark themes (last time I tried) and most importantly, it doesn't convert documents to dark colors. Also, if you open a typical PDF at night on a dark room, you may fell off the chair because of the brightness. While I have a monitor with physical buttons to switch presets, the darkest setting isn't enough to save my eyes from the shock.

            Remember when Chrome used to be fast and lightweight?
            I still like the browser but I'd rather they start cutting out these completely unnecessary features than to keep adding more of them. Google knows their browser supports extensions, right?
