Google promoted the Chrome 73 web browser today to the stable channel for all supported platforms, including GNU/Linux, Windows, and macOS, and it's now rolling out to all users via OTA updates.

If you prefer a lighter or more cheerful color for Chrome, you can still use Google's themes, although these won't adapt to your OS settings like the official dark mode.

Chrome's Dark Mode does look like the browser's Incognito Mode, which might make things a little confusing when you are using the private mode after having enabled the Dark Mode as there's only the Incognito badge differentiating the two browsing modes. However, that said, there is an unofficial work around to get a dark mode of sorts on Windows 10: How To Enable Chrome Dark Mode In Windows 10. Lite Pages are optimised versions of webpages presented after passing them through Chrome's Data Saver feature to make them consume lesser data and load faster.

Besides the Dark Mode, the update also brings along a number of other changes and improvements including improvements in synching and account sign-in, support for media hardware keys, and auto Picture in Picture. Chrome Lite Pages will be explicitly marked in the address bar and users will have the option to load the original unoptimized version if they want. Those are just a few of the reasons we've seen the new color scheme adopted across operating systems, browsers and social media sites in recent months. Signed HTTP exchanges and constructible style sheets are among the other features arriving with Chrome browser's latest build. The release notes promise that the "Windows support is on the way". You'll also have to relaunch your browser after it has been updated to version 73 for the changes to take effect.

Chrome 73.0.3683.75 is now available for download for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android.
