Now, users of Microsoft's OS can experience it, though the option to enable dark mode isn't in Chrome itself. The latest version, Chrome 74, was released for Mac, Windows and Linux and was expected to roll out to users in "the coming days/weeks", said Google. On the shortcut you use to open Chrome, right click and head into properties.

While the dark mode is a good option to have, it may not be the best thing to enable it system-wide.

She said: "It's clear from the data and what everyone can see that there is a lot of damage to the floor of the vehicle and who knows what else".

Dark Mode for Chrome, which arrived on macOS last month, looks nearly identical to Chrome's incognito mode, but with all dialog boxes and menus also dimmed.

Google has been rolling out dark themes to its apps for over a year now. But Chrome 74 for mobile is shipping with an improved data saver feature called Lite mode that reduces data usage by up to 60 percent. Clicking on Dark will instantly set the dark mode on Windows, Chrome, and any other applications that support the theme. With Chrome 74 however, the browser creates a temporary virtual file system that makes it look like the browser is operating in its regular browsing mode, effectively removing the distinction between the two as far as external websites can tell. You also don't have to switch to the dark theme in Windows 10 settings.

Facebook sets aside $3 billion to cover expected FTC fine
CEO Mark Zuckerberg has vowed to remake Facebook with security and privacy serving as the two cornerstones of the company. The one-time charge slashed Facebook's first-quarter net income considerably, although revenue grew 25% in the period.

Windows users who often work in a dark room know that the standard white or brightly colored screens that are used by default can be eye-searing. Along those same lines, "sandboxed iframes" won't be able to initiate downloads without explicit permission in the form of a click from the user.

Another noteworthy feature is that Chrome 74 will prevent pages that are being closed from opening a popup. Android Go, which is Google's program for low-end devices, also uses the latest Android Pie version now.

Mr Biden is one of the favourites to become the Democrat nominee for president and take on Trump in next year's election. In retrospect, he said, he should have held a hearing "where the tone and questioning was not hostile".
