Add a 'Dark Mode' to Any Website With This Chrome Extension Add a 'Dark Mode' to Any Website With This Chrome Extension

I’m a tremendous fan of dark modes. They’re easier on your eyes and your computer’s battery, and I think make using sites and apps a lot more pleasant.

Chrome: The same open-source software company that wants to keep crappy advertising out of your browser also wants to keep “fake news” from enriching your life.

Browser cookies are useful in some instances; unpleasant in others. While they can save you from having to go through a complicated authentication process whenever you’re trying to access your favorite sites, they can also store data on what you’ve done on a particular website—which can then be used to serve you more…
