I love extensions like Dark Reader that automatically transform any website with a dark theme. The way they do this is by injecting many new styles into the DOM, it works but there is two main drawbacks to this method :
- there's a latency that makes contents blink
- it reduces performances on some websites by a lot

So It would be great if there could be a built-in low level solution (directly in web render?) that would swap colors on the fly without editing the page styles and thus would solve the two aforementioned issues.

This would effectively make apps like Firefox Focus a suitable replacement for the typical Google app. It is in Mozilla's best interest to expedite this process. It's been long enough.

It would be great to have. I want to use Firefox but using Brave because it has built-in dark reader mode.

Mozilla should offer 2 options for the user to choose from:

  1. DARK GRAY mode for web contents
  2. #000000 BLACK mode for web contents

  1. DARK GRAY mode for web contents
  2. #000000 BLACK mode for web contents

Yes, agree. Such improvement will be great!

Black content is often way more pleasant to use on OLED screens, it also reduces battery usage. Addons are very cpu heavy.
I'm worried that resistance to implementing this stems from insurmountable roadblocks within current engine.

Dark mode must have the option to change according to the time Programmed
