I’m pondering an idea about browser based, concentrated dark mode/dark theme service’s that operate pretty much like current superb add-on Dark Reader.
What makes me wonder why does the community that usually optimizes for not repeating work among developers, does take the burden of developing a dark theme for pretty much every popular web application.
Wouldn’t it be wiser to develop a set of standards when it comes to colour management, maybe even a .darktheme config file to override some of the basic settings, alongside a single browser based dark mode program for every browser that operates on the principle of current dark reader? I mean the reader is so good that I pretty much prefer it to custom made dark modes on most of the sites anyway.
What’s your insight on this matter?
My personal opinion is that it’s the inevitable future, but I haven’t found any signs that the process has started yet.
EDIT- before someone suggests sticking to the Dark Reader extension, It’s all good but compare a little a bit clunky extension developed by few enthusiasts to fully fledged browser options backed by hundreds of full-time developers.
