Find the perfect browser with dark mode: A comprehensive guide

Browser with dark mode | Night Eye

Staring at a brightly lit screen at all hours can put a lot of strain on your eyes and potentially disrupt your sleep. That’s why you need a browser with dark mode to turn down the lights from time to time. Dark mode on your browser offers a soothing light or grayish text on a black background as a fantastic alternative to the regular black text on a blinding white background, thereby going easy on your eyes.

Dark mode helps reduce glare and brightness as well as excessive exposure to blue light, which has been proven to disrupt your natural circadian rhythm, making it harder to fall asleep. Dark mode may also protect the eyes from eye-related issues such as frequent dry eyes, eye strain, increased tension headaches or migraines, and visual disturbances.

Given how effective dark mode is, it's no surprise that developers have included a built-in dark mode in a variety of browsers. But some browsers do not have a native dark theme. Thankfully, Night Eye is an amazing alternative to still enjoying that visually appealing dark theme while using any browser of your choice.

Here’s everything you must know about the top browsers with full dark mode settings, alongside instructions on how to install dark mode on every other browser using the Night Eye.
