Just click on the half-moons in the top right bar and it will be like dimming the lights for an innovative browsing experience that will bring you so many benefits, far more than you can imagine. But let’s see in detail what are the benefits of making the switch to dark mode.
Reduced eye fatigue
We stare at screens most of the day and this can lead to fatigue, eye pain, blurred vision, headaches and more. Switching to dark mode can help reduce these effects. When it gets dark, your brain naturally begins to produce more melatonin, the chemical that makes you sleepy. Any type of light can disrupt the melatonin levels, so people should ideally avoid all types of light as bedtime approaches. Harvard says that people should avoid using bright screens about three hours before bed. Night mode produces significantly less blue light than standard screen settings. Ideally, you shouldn’t use any screens leading up to bedtime. If you do, using dark mode should disrupt sleep much less than standard screen modes that use blue light.
Increased visibility in low-light conditions.
By reducing the intense blue light typical of bright screens, switching to a dark mode makes it easier to see in low-light situations, such as late at night or early in the morning.
It improves a device’s battery life
Dark colors are known to consume less than light colors, but Google recently demonstrated with some accuracy how much the colors displayed on an OLED display affect power consumption.
