Google announced that they will soon release its latest Chrome version. And it caught many Chrome users by surprise – and delight – as it introduces the Google Chrome Dark Mode.
In a recent post, Google announces the release of Chrome 74 for Windows, Mac, and Linux. They also revealed that the rollout will be available over the coming days/weeks. The latest Chrome 74.0.3729.108 is said to contain a number of fixes and improvements including 39 security fixes.
Google Chrome Dark Mode Feature
As expected, the latest Google Chrome browser introduces the long-awaited Dark Mode feature for Windows 10. Note that you have to manually activate the Dark Mode feature. Here are the steps to manually activate the Dark Mode feature in Windows 10:
- Right Click the Google Chrome shortcut and click on Properties.
- In the Target field, add “–force-dark-mode” after “C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” (do not include the quotation marks).
- Hit Apply and click OK.
- Once you launched Google Chrome, the Dark Mode should already be activated.
Incognito Detection Blocking Feature
Another feature introduced on the latest Google Chrome version is the Incognito detection blocking. This feature helps prevent websites from tracking you in Incognito mode. And like the Dark Mode feature, you have to manually enable this feature, here are the steps:
- Open the latest Google Chrome browser version and go to “chrome://flags/”.
- Search “Incognito” and then enable the Filesystem API.
- After doing these steps, relaunch the Google Chrome browser and it should be good to go.
As explained by WCCFTech.com, enabling the Filesystem API can effectively trick websites into believing you are using the normal non-Incognito mode. With this feature, it can prevent websites from tracking if you are in Incognito mode.
Again, these two features must be manually installed before you can enjoy its benefits. Try it by updating your Google Chrome browser version now!
