Enable the dedicated dark modes



Twitter

The popular social networking site Twitter is one of those blinding sites that Thankfully late last year added a dark mode which they call Night Mode that makes their site a lot easier to look at.

1. To activate it Select your Avatar in the upper right.

2. At the bottom of the drop-down menu, select Night Mode.

The background switches to a dark blue color but the black text converted to white that supplies a better contrast that I feel makes everything a lot easier to read. Having used their dark mode for the last couple of months I have no plans of switching back.



Reddit

The self-proclaimed front page of the Internet recently redesigned their site for the first time in a decade. A new feature they added is a dark mode which they have also incorrectly named Night Mode just like Twitter. More on that later calculate their so-called Night Mode whether you're logged in or not.

1. Select the Dropdown menu in the upper right.

2. Then Toggle the Switch to turn on Night Mode.

Now you should have a black background with white text that makes the site more pleasant to look at. Kudos to Twitter and Reddit for offering this dark mode feature on their sites but they don't seem to understand the difference between Night Mode and Dark Mode. The dark mode is simply a dark theme that is very useful to minimize eyestrain.

Night Mode which goes by many names including Nightlight on Windows and Night Shift on Apple Products filters the blue light coming out of your screens to help you sleep better and reduce eye strain. The night modes offered by Twitter and Reddit do not filter out the blue light from your screens.



DuckDuckGo

For those of you that use the Privacy-focused search engine, DuckDuckGo offers two dark themes for you to choose from.

1. The first one can be activated by Selecting the Menu Icon in the upper right. The four themes are visible, choose the theme to dark and this will give you a dark background with all white text.

2. To Select, the other dark theme clicks on more themes of the two dark themes available the one I prefer is called Terminal. If you want to activate it Select Terminal and then click on Save and Exit.

Instead of having all the text and white titles of web pages are in green and links are in yellow.




Dark Reader

How to Enable Dark Mode on Every Website

For those websites that don't have a native dark mode feature my new favorite extension is Dark Reader which is available for Chrome and Firefox. This extension is also the best Chrome productivity extension for entrepreneurs. Unlike most dark-themed extensions that create a custom dark mode for individual websites, Dark Reader creates a dark theme for the sites you visit without having to install custom styles or themes. It basically just inverts the bright colors on a website making them easier to look at without all that white light.

The first thing you'll need is a chromium browser to install a dark reader onto. So whether that's google chrome, the brave browser, or Microsoft edge either one of them will do.

1. Open up your browser, you want to navigate to the following URL address which is https:chrome.google.com/web store/category/ extensions.

2. Once you're on the chrome web store, you want to left-click on the Text Box on the top left-hand corner and then type Dark Reader, and then hit Enter.

3. Once you've done that, you'll get a list of extensions.

4. Pick the first one called Dark Reader which enables dark mode for all sites.

It's got over 2 million-plus users and over 7000 reviews.

5. Install this extension to add it to your browser.

5. Navigate to the top right-hand corner where it should say Add to and then your Browser Name. For example, if you're using brave, so it says add to brave. So left-click on the Blue Button.

6. You'll get the notification that says brave has not reviewed this extension for security and safety only install this extension if you trust the developer. Of course, this developer is trusted due to the number of users and the reviews.

7. So left-click on it Add an Extension and then the dark reader will begin downloading and installing onto your browser.

8. Once the dark reader has been installed you'll be greeted with another window where you can support the creators of the dark reader if you wish.

9. Pin dark reader to your browser, navigate to the top right-hand corner here and left-click on the Jigsaw Icon also known as extensions.
Once you've done that locate the dark reader and then left-click on the pin Extension icon to pin it.

Once you've done that you should see on the top right-hand corner you have the little dark Reader Icon

10. To customize Dark Reader to better suit your needs. Left-click on to some Additional Options and settings that you have with the dark reader.

11. Here you can Switch from Dark to Light mode, make changes to the Brightness, Contrast. Sepia filter and Grayscale.

12. If you need to make any changes for an individual site select the box only four followed by the name of the website to highlight it before making any adjustments.

How to Enable Dark Mode on Every Website

Here are some other examples of Dark Reader being used on other sites. It makes a Google Search look funky. Also Wikipedia. And it gives YouTube a cool look without having to use the beta version of their site. I highly recommend that you check out this extension. It's completely free to open-source and truly makes surfing the Internet easier on the eyes. If it was useful for you let me know your thoughts in the comments whether you think more websites should offer a dark mode.
