Microsoft is working hard to improve both Windows 10 and its accompanying features. This time, Microsoft’s brand new browser, Edge will get a dark mode, which will be especially useful to users who like to read at night.

One of the Microsoft employees, and ex-Stack Overflow moderator, Johnatan Sampson posted a picture of new, dark theme for Microsoft Edge browser on his twitter profile. As we can see from the screenshot, Dark Mode for Edge browser looks pretty good and classy, and there’s a big chance that you’ll love it once the browser is released for good.

Besides its elegant look, Dark theme of Edge browser can also benefit our eyes. If you stay late at night browsing the internet, with your lights off, bright light of the computer screen could damage your eyesight, and using the darker theme will reduce the brightness, so the risk of damaging your eyes will be diminished.

Another thing we can notice from the screenshot (this version of Microsoft Edge is, logically, from some of the next builds of Windows 10, but we cannot tell which) is that ‘smiley button’ for Windows Feedback is replaced with Share button, which was placed in the ‘three-dotted’ menu in previous builds.

The final release of Windows 10 is just little more than a month away from us and its good to see Microsoft taking care of every aspect of the new OS. As for the Edge browser in Windows 10 Technical Preview, Microsoft finally decided to completely re-brand the browser and remove Project Spartan, so from now on, we’re going to use Microsoft Edge browser even in the Technical Preview, and we definitely should expect even more improvements until the final version comes out on July 29th.
