Change the bright white colors of Google Chrome to a dark theme.
While Google Chrome's default white theme is good for many, a dark theme can be useful for anyone with vision issues, eyes made tired by bright screens, or anyone concerned with sleep disturbances associated with using light screens, especially before going to sleep.
Deluminate for Chrome is an extension that doesn't just change the Chrome interface, it inverts web pages to display dark without changing the colors substantially. Images retain their contrast so there's no "high contrast" appearance. I noticed a slight slow down while using Deluminate and text display isn't as clear, in particular in search engine results. You might have trouble with screenshot extensions (Fireshot and Lightshot worked fine, Nimbus removed the dark theme) but overall, if you're looking for something dark and restful for your eyes when using Chrome, give Deluminate a try.
