"Dark Theme for Google" extension brings a customizable dark theme to some of the Google services such as Google Search and Google Images. The extension supports all localized Google domains.

Using this extension you can customize many colors including background and link colors on the options page of the extension if you don't like the default configuration.


  1. You can define a period for the extension to automatically activate the dark theme
  2. You can append your custom CSS rules to the default dark theme from the options page
  3. You can ask the extension to automatically follow the system color scheme (turn dark theme on when the preferred color scheme is dark and turn it off when not) (this feature uses the JavaScript's matchMedia method to install a listener for prefers-color-scheme).
  4. Supports "Calendar" and "Messages" services (as of version 0.5.0)

-- This extension is an independent open-source project and is not related to Google Inc in anyways.

This Is The Best Extension For Dark mode On google!
by AquaPlxyzz YT AquaPlxyzz YT, 2021-03-05

FINALLY! A dark mode for Google search that does actually work and not half work, sorta, but 50% is blacked out... it actually works. Thank you, I will report any issues to try to help. Just be aware this is the only *fully working (as far I can tell so far) dark mode for Google search, I've tried dozens and dozens but they're all half baked.
