The built in feature is controlled by an icon called "Invert webpage color" and is represented by an icon that is the shape of a circle with the left half very dark blue and the right half very light blue in color. This icon can be placed on the toolbar if you customize the toolbar and select it. Clicking the icon should toggle this feature on and off.

Couldn't you just use the more recent (assumed improved and more secure) version and go into settings and then locate a theme that is light and works for you? Personally, I LOVE dark mode on everything, phone, PC, tablet, anywhere I can get it because it is easier to see and saves battery when using an OLED but some people don't want it so maybe a theme would help?

I don't know what you like but for example. this is a light color with some blue added which makes the browser a cream/blue color. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... lplnmdalnc

Hope that's what you meant and it helps.

l like to Auto hide on top my bookmarks.
ln the dark mode when l select Auto hide on top,the bookmark bar reverts back to the light blue color like in previous versions.The icons show but the fonts are unreadable/invisible.The icons are spaced out as they would be with fonts there,but you cant see them.lf l choose the Always visible on top option,the bookmark bar is dark and both icons and fonts show up as they should do.lve tried a few themes and played around with the settings but got tired of it and installed a earlier version which lm happy with..cheers.

I set my bookmarks to that same setting and at least with this dark theme I am using (Dark Pro), I saw no issues. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... fmbnklhbjd

That said I also reset to the default theme and also saw no issues. I tried the link I sent you above (Classic Blue theme) and with that theme, I did see exactly what you described but default and the dark mode I am using no issues observed.

Great! I'm glad you got it working and I could be of some help.

(The dark theme is much better than the really dark gray default theme anyway). ;)

Had some glitches switching from default to Dark Material Pro but it worked out in the end.

Btw, do agree, "Dark Material Pro" is a superb theme! 8-)
Could no longer find the dark Morpheus one but this one is even better.

Where is this dark mode? I am not seeing anything with that name in the preferences. All I see is "Invert web page color", but that is for the content, not the interface.
