GOOGLE HAS RELEASED Chrome 73, which brings the long-awaited dark mode to Apple's macOS.
The feature, which is similar to the Dark Theme in Google's Incognito mode, is available now to those running macOS Mojave.
When Chrome is updated to the latest version, the browser will automatically switch to the goth-friendly dark mode (below) whenever the macOS dark mode is activated, or users can set their browser to a permanent dark mode.
The feature isn't yet available on Windows, but Google's release note promise that "support is on the way".
While some may struggle to get excited about a new colour theme, Chrome 73 also brings with it support for the multimedia keys on your keyboard, which can now be used to control playback for both audio and video files on Chrome OS, macOS and Windows. Linux support is "coming soon".
'Progressive Web Apps' (PWAs) are also now supported on macOS in Chrome 73; these are essentially websites that have an icon, work offline and feel just like a regular desktop app, except they use the Google Chrome framework.
With support now added for Apple's desktop OS, Chrome PWAs are supported on all six major operating systems; Android, Chrome OS, iOS, Linux, macOS, and Windows.
There are a number of changes for developers in Chrome 73 too, including signed HTTP exchanges and constructable style sheets.
Chrome 73 for desktop is available to download now, and if your browser hasn't received it already, users can request it manually by visiting their Chrome browser's built-in updater. An update for Android and Chrome OS will be arriving in the coming weeks. µ
Some deliberately, others through stupidity
Quite the business expense
It's another quantum leap camera
Evolution, not revolution, but that's just fine
