used by over 4,000,000 users.
So the look of dark mode on every website
has been carefully tested.


The built-in Safari dark mode is free and
will stay free forever with full support for
all websites for delightful night reading.


The Dark Night extension was built with privacy
as a no. 1 priority so it doesn't collect any

Now my wife can sleep!

I often wake up at night and can’t get back to sleep. At such times, I’ll grab my phone to wind down again, but some of my favorite websites have no dark mode and the light from my phone will often wake my wife as well, not to mention hurting my eyes. Rather than wait for every web site in the world to offer a dark mode option, this Safari browser extension solves the problem in one fell swoop. Works as advertised… Nicely done!

Works well most of the time

I bought this app and use it on iOS and MacOS. It does its job well most of the time. But there are some websites which are immune to its magics and retain their original theme unaffected. The most annoying issue with the app it that it keeps dark mode during the day allegedly based on the OS setting of dark mode, when it is not true. It requires Safari to be restarted to realize it is not night time anymore and so disengage. The opposite is not frequent nor does happen at all. This happens both on iOS and macOS.

When it works, it results in a dark mode as you’d expect with the option to reduce images brightness and easily create a list of exceptions for those websites you don’t want it to modify. Here too, it sometimes is inconsistent, as it does not recognize subdomains on certain website and you might find yourself forcing your settings when browsing various sections or pages in a top domain due to inconsistent results.

Finally, it would be nice to be able to pick from a variety of dark themes. Sometimes I feel it is too dark or that we could spice things a bit with a different color pallet.

Hopefully it will evolve to become better on the above mentioned issues. Anyway, the price is very fair, allowing family and cross device share (thank you!), and despite the pointed flaws I continue using it, as it does not totally detract from the general purpose of being gentle to our eyes when browsing at night.

Protect your Eyes from Bright Websites

This app works like absolute magic! Every website in Safari goes from light mode to dark mode in a matter of seconds, swiftly protecting your eyes from an excessively bright screen. This app also collects no data at all and works for any or all websites in a pinch. Overall, an amazing app that makes browsing the web at night a little more tolerable.
