Chrome 74 is officially launched today for Windows, Mac and Linux, marking the launch of a new Dark Mode for Windows 10 users. The same dark mode was introduced last month with Chrome 73 for macOS. Today's update includes automatic support for Windows 10. Chrome automatically adapts to the theme when a dark mode is enabled on Windows 10. The end result makes Chrome look almost identical to the browser's darker Incognito Mode menu bars.
While Google is enabling this new dark mode on Windows, the company is doing so. It's still not fully turned on for all Chrome users. "I can confirm that we will now make this feature available to a small number of Chrome M74 users and become more widely available in the near future," said a Chrome Community Manager. If you do not want to wait for Google to fully activate it, there will be a shortcut to enforce Dark Mode:
- Find the shortcut you use to start Chrome and open its properties.
- Add "̵
- Start Chrome and start the dark mode If you usually start Chrome from an attached taskbar item, you must use the shortcut key Chrome has always offered creative support to allow for dark mode, but this is possible Official mode now means context menus are displayed correctly in the browser, Chrome 74 also includes a number of other changes that are not visually obvious: Chrome's animation features can now be disabled to reduce the motion sickness, and there is a new flag that prevents websites from detecting incognito mode.
Chrome 74 can downloaded from the Google Chrome website using the browser.
