Automatic dark themes in various applications.

This document will detail various program’s impelementations of dark modes and how to automatically activate them based on the daytime or sunrise/sunset.

To do this, we’ll use Auto Dark Mode.

Apple Safari

See Mozilla Firefox.

Google Chrome

See Mozilla Firefox.

Microsoft Edge

This will only work for Edge versions using EdgeHTML, not the newer ones using Blink!

Mozilla Firefox
