dark mode chromium edge

Microsoft is currently testing its Chromium-based Edge browser and we have recently seen the first screenshots of the new interface.

The new version has a lot of similarities with the Google Chrome browser and it has inherited a few features from the browser as well. 

Well, if you’re interested in testing the upcoming version of Edge along with its dark mode, you can download the browser installer.

How to enable dark theme in Chromium Edge browser

1. First, you need to type the following code in the address bar to launch the flags screen. 

edge://flags

2. Then, the Google Chrome screen will show the flag configuration interface. Search for the following option using the search box:

         #edge-follow-os-theme

Another way is navigating directly to the flag by pasting the following code in Microsoft Edge’s address bar:

          chrome://flags/#edge-follow-os-theme

The flag basically allows the browser to adapt to the system settings in the operating system.

Furthermore, the description also states that the development of the Chromium-based browser‘s Mac version is currently in progress. 

3. Initially, this flag has been set to Default. The dark theme can be activated by switching the option to  Enable. The settings will be saved after you reboot your browser.

4. The dark mode in the system settings needs to be activated in order to use the feature in the Microsoft Edge browser.

The feature can be activated by navigating to the below-mentioned path in Windows 10 Settings app.

         Settings > Personalization > Colors > Choose your color > Dark

The changes will be reflected in the UI of your OS. The dark or light theme changes in Windows 10 system will be applied to the new Edge browser in your system.

The Chromium Edge browser has not been officially released yet but the company plans to release it very soon.
