    white text on a black background is one of the most tiring things for my eyes, which is why i don't use windows' dark mode and why nobody else uses it either, Linux has that done so much better

    Red on black has been known to be easier for dark conditions for centuries. Drivers looking at a bright white screen have issues finding an exit or seeing traffic.

    LG has a really solid system wide dark mode in its custom droid skin, and support for going totally black and white in all apps.

    For anyone wishing for a consistent explorer WITH dark mode, lots of other themes and fully customizable UI, try Directory opus. Best software I ever bought.

    Maybe we should all read things named books. They are not so bad to the eyes and they can make you more intelligent.

    I don't get it. Is it better to use night mode or dark mode? Or both? I mean, I'm okay with this yellowish book-like color, f.lux turns the coloring off when in full screen and I don't have OLED because I have a laptop and obviously OLED laptops are a minority. I mean, dark themes are kick-ass. Especially when it comes to Vivaldi, Awesome WM and VS Code/Community. But... Win10's dark theme is... kinda weird.

    Dark mode also saves battery on any screen. The black pixel means that the pixel is turned off. I removed my wallpaper and put a black background, against my girlfriend's will, and my phone now lasts a whole day.

    I use "Kiwi Browser" which has built-in dark mode... I believe its based on Chromium (the parent project for Chrome Brower as well).
    Plus, having a OnePlus device has its benefits due to OxygenOS which always had a great support for Systemwide Dark mode.

    Windows 10 has something called "Night light" that displays warmer colors and helps with the brightness if you're browsing at night. It does this for the display so what ever you're looking at will have the night light feature on it. It works very well. It helps you go to sleep as well. No Dark Mode needed. For once Windows 10 does something right.

  • Tech Guy
    Tech Guy 25 days ago

    At the time this video was posted Microsoft had re released Windows 10 version 1809 (the October 2018 update).
    It may not have been available to every device that would support it by the exact time this video went out but it was available.
    I can say the dark mode on Windows 10 is a bit sub par in applications like the control panel for example. When it comes to file explorer it could still be improved because i have noticed the folders pane go from dark to light while the navigation pane and command ribbon stay dark. Microsoft could improve the dark theme in their office suite in my opinion as well.
    As for email boxes or email apps in which a dark mode is supported it would be a big improvement for each email service or application developer for aforementioned email service to make it possible to read emails in white text on black.
