According to reports, Google is testing a new dark mode in its desktop search experience.
Dark mode, dark theme, night mode… whatever you call it, is an important feature for those who spend a lot of time in front of their computer screens. If you’re one of them, you’ll be happy to hear that Google is A/B testing a new darkened experience in Search on the desktop web.

9to5Google reports that Google is testing a dark theme in desktop web searches, available on multiple browsers. The page design doesn’t change, but if you’re part of the test, you’ll get a dark gray background in your search page – with a light Google logo and blue buttons.
While Google has been going in this direction for a while – Chrome added a “Show darkened search pages on Android” flag back in May – we don’t know how long the test will last and whether it will be expanded to more people anytime soon. I would give it up to three months to start rolling out to all.
While operating systems already have their own dark themes for some time, and Chrome offers dark mode on some sites, a dark-mode desktop search page is what we’re all waiting for – especially for late-night searches.
