Hi,

 

 

 

I do apologise if this has been asked thousands of times before, but I was wondering if there was a Dark mode on Geekzone, or at least a functional Google / Firefox add on that works with Geekzone. I, myself like many others scroll the forum at 1am and would like to rest the eyes a bit.

 

 

 

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Not asked before. No, there isn't one.

I would love a native dark/night mode on Geekzone. The kind of dark/night mode where it’s pitch black/midnight theme.

Is it something that would be easy to implement on Geekzone?

Me too. Just a ‘nice to have’ if it’s easy to set up.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

I have used chrome flags dark mode for years now. The few sites with problems I no longer visit.

Firefox just pick the most popular extension.

Firefox has a setting probably does 70% of the job.

Another vote for one as long as it's not too much of an issue :P

I use the Safari extension "Noir" which works... fine, but a native dark mode (mobile mode?) would be great.
Cheers,
Joseph

I use Dark Reader on Edge.

It's on Firefox as well, I set it to automatically toggle based on system/OS setting.

 

Coupled with Auto Dark Mode (free in Windows Store) they works flawlessly.

Same but on iOS.

Only issue is that it doesn’t work with everything on Geekzone. Certain areas are still not dark mode/midnight black theme especially the greys and yellows on the Geekzone page.

Geekzone is flawless for me on chrome flags dark mode. Edge should have the same flags available?

I've found Dark Reader is taking Geekzone quite well. Just not a fan of websites I've already got in Dark mode being put in Ultra Dark mode, lol

On a side note, why does Geekzone consume so much RAM?

 

 

Geekzone uses about 550MB of RAM per page, compared to about 200MB with an adblocker... is this why my phone sometimes crashes while on Geekzone?

Dark Reader looked hideous to me.

I would also like a dark mode that worked across device browsers, so it wasn't reliant on an extension.  It's bright loading Geekzone in bed at 11pm in my Meta Quest 3 browser.
