Chrome 73 Comes with A Lot of New Feature Including Dark Mode for macOS

Google Chrome 73 has now been rolled out for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It has come with certain improvements, especially for Windows, where there are better synchronization options and easy account sign-in. Simultaneously, it has introduced dark mode for the macOS.
"Dark mode for Chrome's UI is now supported on Mac, and Windows support is on the way.", announced Pete LePage.
This dark mode will not be applicable on settings, bookmarks, and other pages, which will appear with a white background, but Chrome tabs, top Chrome, Omnibar, bookmarks, and three-dot overflow menu will appear in dark mode feature.
"The “dark mode” that launched in Chrome 73 is limited to Chrome’s UI itself, not web content.", clarified Chrome Developers team in a Tweet.
Incognito mode and newly introduced dark mode of Chrome are quite interlinked, and the only way to distinguish is to use the incognito icon that at the top right corner or the chrome tab.

Now that dark mode is available at OS, Mac devices need to be enabled to it. Go to System preferences option and enable system-wide dark mode in order to use this new feature by Chrome.

Prior to this, Google had introduced some themes for Chrome Web, which had a dark theme that looked a lot like dark mode. Now suppose you have enabled your dark mode but do not want to use it just now. There is an option to choose a lighter version theme from the themes available to get out of dark mode without disabling it on macOS Mojave.

Google has also announced that the dark mode for Windows will be announced soon. For now, Chrome 73 comes with the auto picture-in-picture mode of installed PWAs and hardware media keys are supported.
