Chrome for Android is updated to version 73 with many new features

As you can see from the screenshot attached below, once you've updated your Google Chrome web browser to version 73.0.3683.75 and relaunch it, you'll notice that Chrome is now dark by default if you're using the Dark Mode on macOS Mojave 10.14 and later.

Summarily, settings to turn things off or on with regard to dark mode are not found in either the general settings menu or in under the above-mentioned "Developer options", for the time being. That all changes with the latest version of Chrome for Android which support Chrome Lite Pages, which is just a fancy name for optimized HTTPS pages.

Sure, you could download "dark mode" themes from the Chrome store before, Chrome's native dark mode features the design sensibilities one would expect from Google. As for the Dark mode in the macOS version, it looks very similar to how Chrome looks when used in incognito mode.

In addition to the wider support for PIP mode, Chrome 73 will also let developers add hardware media key support to web apps. Additionally, features like cross-platform tab sharing are now under testing. Google Chrome 73 is now available for download for GNU/Linux, macOS, and Windows from our web portal.

Jackson was expected to tack on additional prison time beyond the 47-month punishment Manafort received last week in Virginia. District Judge for the District of Columbia Amy Berman Jackson said on Wednesday.

Google also says that Chrome automatically disables Lite pages on a per-site or per-user basis when it detects that users frequently opt to load the original page.

The Chrome 73 update will be rolling out to all desktop users in the coming days. Additionally, automatic picture-in-picture mode optimisation for video in PWAs and the addition of a "Skip Ad" button in Picture-in-Picture window are among the new features that have entered testing with Chrome 73's arrival.

The Android and Chrome OS versions of Chrome 73 are also expected to launch soon, though you can check out the new features early by downloading the Chrome beta.
