The Chrome Android theme setting is set to the system default. That means, if your phone is set to dark mode, then chrome will automatically camouflage to dark skin. If the phone’s skin is in light, then Chrome will be in the light. Anyways, we have the option to choose the theme irrespective of the phone’s default settings.
The light theme has been there since the inception of browsers. Almost all the browsers default to light or white skin until 2018 when the dark theme came into existence.
The difference between light and dark mode is not only just in terms of appearance but also in how it affects battery performance. The light theme consumes extra power for brightness as compared to the dark theme.
I prefer to set the default skin to chrome dark mode since it’s power consumption friendly, and also has less effect on the eyes. Since my phone is set to light mode sometimes, I have to manually set the theme for the chrome browser. Since I do most of my reading on this browser, it helps me soothe my eyes.
