Chrome for iOS modified with dark mode and card-based UI. Following today’s release of the Mac desktop, Chrome 78 is now available for iOS. Google adds support for the iOS 13 dark mode in particular and redesigns portions of the browser with a card-based UI.
The Chrome browser on iOS supports the system-wide Dark Mode setting without the ability to opt-out manually. This behavior is close to that of Mac and Windows but different from that of Ios where user-by-app themes can be configured.
Chrome’s dark iOS mode is slightly different from other first-time and third-party applications because OLED black is not used. Rather, Google leverages throughout its services a consistent shade of gray. The New Tab tab, lines, and different menus look at this new browser themes. The tab switcher remains the same as a black background already featured.
Version 78 also includes redesigning Google Bookmarks, History, Recent Tabs, and iOS 13 card motif Reading Lists. These pages have bold headings and can be swiped back to your previous screen. In the top-right corner, there is also a “Done” button.
Release notes also mention the ability from the settings page to add a new credit card directly. Chrome 78 is now available through the App Store for iOS.
