Can't believe the amount of energy being poured into "Dark Modes".
Gonna be funny looking back on this in a year or two.
As others things made by the tech buro, I guess so. It will be an expensive trend, unless you have a perfect CSS solution. Including the images on SVG, etc. Only to please MacOS users :D
Dark Mode is more than just a trend, it is what should have happened already years ago, simply because human anatomy. Besides the fact that having a bright screen at low light conditions (at night) is really bad for your visual cortex, drains a lot of unnecessary power from the battery (power saving is highest on OLED displays where dark pixels are actually switched off), it has long been an established scientific fact that reading light text on dark background produces way less eye strain than the inverse that we use all the time. (why do we use dark text on white paper? Well, goes all the way back to printing paper, which was bleached in a chemical process and ink, which was more expensive, was sparsely applied for the text, which resulted in a media representation we never truly challenged afterwards because of cost).
The only thing I'm actively missing in dark modes is dimming of media content as well. Like applying reduced brightness on images, video, etc.
To summarize, dark mode is essential, long overdue and should be adopted by not only apps, but websites as well if they care about user experience.
futurecurrent popular trend is dark mode
There, fixed it for you
