    Why no Chrome or Safari dark modes? Seems like this needs to be definitively complete to be useful.

      As far as I'm aware, neither have a built-in option for something like that.

        Chrome has incognito mode, which is shown for Firefox, and Safari, like all built-in apps, has a dark mode option if that's your setting in macOS Mojave

          Ah right! Totally dropped the ball on incognito mode. Thanks for calling it out!

    What about mobile? AppleTouch Icons, et cetera?

      Yeah I've been thinking about a follow-up to this for mobile! That's a little trickier, but definitely something I'm considering working on.

    Shame you can't just give it a URL and have it pull the favicon. I have different favicons for different platforms.

      I actually got the same feedback over on Product Hunt! It's definitely something I'll be looking at implementing soon.
