Kotaku dark mode – how to enable it

In this guide, we will make a brief review of the gaming site Kotaku and how combined with Night Eye, you can enable dark mode while visiting it in search of a better visual experience and increased eye care.

History of Kotaku

Originally launched in 2004 as part of the Gawker Media network, Kotaku is a video game website. Univision Communications bought Gawker Media in 2016 and rebranded it as Gizmodo Media Group, later known as G/O Media. Launched in 2004, Kotaku's target audience is focused on young gamers with Matthew Gallant as the lead blog writer. About a month later, Brian Crecente was brought in to try to save the failing website, and ever since, the site has launched several country-specific versions for Australia, Japan, Brazil, and the UK. In 2009, Crecente was recognized as one of the 20 most influential people in the video game industry over the past 20 years by GamePro and was previously included in Top 50 journalists by Edge in 2006. Kotaku has made CNET's "Blog 100" list and was ranked 50th on PC Magazine's "Top 100 Classic Web Sites" list. Kotaku is currently run by Stephen Totilo, who replaced Brian Crecente in 2012. The site's name, "Kotaku" is a made-up Japanese word with "ko" (小) meaning "small" and "otaku" (オタク) meaning "geek".

Kotaku dark mode

Do you prefer the dark or are you afraid of it? Are you a "night owl" type of person who tends to stay up until late at night and read his favorite gaming news at Kotaku? Would you like to visit your favorite gaming website in a cooler and darker version, before or after your daily gaming session? If that is the case, Night Eye may be your perfect tool and future best addition while acquiring the knowledge all gamers need. New gaming strategies and updates, hardware and software product reviews, interesting tips, fan community gatherings – just a few of the things you can find at Kotaku. By enabling Night Eye dark mode extension on your browser, you will apply negative polarity (the bright text on a dark background) on your PC or laptop screen, producing better visual experience and increased eye care by replacing the old fashioned positive polarity (dark text on a bright background). Negative polarity (dark mode) is way less harmful to human vision in the long run than the ordinary light mode most of the websites use, mainly because of the reduced screen flickering and harmful blue light. The dark mode is a preferred option, especially if you are browsing late at night in a low-light environment or read extensively. As gamers or just ordinary digital users, we do spend a lot of time every day in front of our screens. Unfortunately, sometimes we forget to take care of our eyes. With Night Eye you can remove symptoms like headaches, dry and irritated eyes, and even blurry vision and increase your eye protection to a new level. Night Eye is available on all modern browsers and is totally free for installation. Enjoy Kotaku's dark mode!
