I woke up this morning and turned on my Windows desktop computer and Chrome browser had a dark background. I did not ask for it to have dark background. Apparently Google decided to automatically switch Chrome to a dark background with an update without asking for my permission.
It was almost black. But actually it was a very dark gray. rgb(18,18,18) hex: #121212. This was on a Windows 7 PC. I thought maybe it was only Windows 7, so I turned on my Windows 10 laptop to check. Chrome also had a dark background on my Windows 10 laptop. It wasn't just the Google home page that was dark but every website had a dark or black background.
Very annoying for Chrome to switch to a dark theme by itself. If anything I would want the background to be solid black not dark gray or rgb(18,18,18).
How To Fix Chrome Background From Black Back To White
Now websites should be back to a normal background color again. But if you feel like having dark backgrounds for websites then you can experiment with Auto Dark Mode for Web Contents settings in chrome://flags/ when you are ready to. Not when Chrome forces you to.
