Noir - Dark Mode for Safari 4+

Browse better at night

Jeffrey Kuiken

    • $2.99



Noir is a Safari extension that automatically adds a dark mode to every website you visit.

It makes browsing the web at night so much better. With Noir, you won’t be blinded by bright websites ever again.

And the results look great too. Noir generates a custom dark style for each website you visit, based on the colors that are used on a page. You won’t even notice this happening in the background – that’s how fast it is – but you’ll certainly appreciate the end result: a beautiful dark mode tailored for each website, where contrast is preserved and highlights still pop. And with over 20 built-in themes and the ability to create your own, you can customize the results exactly the way you want.

Noir works with any website you visit in Safari, automatically. By default, Noir is linked to your device’s Dark Mode, so websites will only go dark when you want them to. But you can easily customize this to your liking, even per website. Only want to use Noir on just a few specific websites? Sure thing! Disable Noir on some websites? No problem!

Built from the ground up for iOS and iPadOS, the app feels right at home on your device. It supports the brand new Safari web extension feature, which means there’s no need to manually activate it every time you load a new page. The app also tightly integrates with system features such as Shortcuts, Focus Filters, and Widgets to fully integrate Noir in all your workflows. And your settings are automatically synced to all your devices using iCloud.

And just as importantly, Noir takes your privacy seriously: it doesn’t collect any of your browsing data. Period.

Noir is made by an indie iOS developer. It does not include any subscriptions or ads. Buy Noir once, use it forever.

• Found a website where Noir’s dark mode doesn’t look just right? Let me know by reporting it. The app will be frequently updated to address issues that are reported.

Privacy Policy:
• The Noir extension requires access to the websites you visit to analyze the existing style of the page and to override it with Noir's dark style.
• Noir never collects your browsing data. The only data Noir ‘collects’ are your settings, and those will never leave your device or iCloud account.

Bought it, without knowing the garden.

I was looking through “Safari Extensions” one day as I never really used them before, then came along ‘Noir’. The $1.99 (give or take $1) sort of made me think if it was worth paying, but I gave it a whirl. While I personally only have issues on the sights that contain vivid white imagery to convey their UI, other sites work marvelously with Noir. I, a student, find this also a cheeky way to “hide” what I’m reading from other classmates because some can snoop and as I’m the only one with the iPad it’s sorta awkward. My favorite feature is when you’re editing a theme you get a random Noir-related news company with a newspaper style story about the theme. Haha, what a nice touch! It just refreshes whenever the control center is toggled I’ve found. Sorta wish it was a system wide feature but that is beyond any iOS app capability. Color Filters work best with other apps.

Great on iOS but …

I purchased the Noir app for my iPhone and iPad immediately after Apple launched iOS 15 and I have been very happy with it. About a month ago, I bought my first Macbook . One of the first things I did while setting up my laptop was attempt to restore Noir to Safari from my iPhone/iPad to the Macbook. I figured it would be a simple process, especially because of Apple’s integration of iOS apps with the M1 Macs. Unfortunately, it quickly became obvious that if I wanted Noir on my Macbook, I would have to buy it again. I don’t have alot of money and It took me a year to save up for the Macbook so this was a disappointment. I have not purchased Noir for my Macbook yet and I probably won’t, simply because I can’t afford it nor can I justify the expense to myself. I already bought it. I’ll be looking into alternatives, but I am fairly sure that no other option will compare to Noir. Still, I can’t afford it. Just because I own a Macbook Air doesn’t mean I have cash to spare in order to buy something I already purchased.

If this is not the appropriate place to bring this issue up, I’m sorry, I mean no harm.

Yes, It's THAT Good.

Noir is an excellent app and a superb value. I am grateful for a smart and truly utilitarian extension app that finally invokes and creates an Auto-Dark mode intelligently in Safari. —— Noir is so good, in fact, that you may not always recognize what it's actually doing in the background. It just becomes completely natural that Safari isn't blinding you while browsing at night. —— The rare moments when Noir does not "work" it's still doing exactly what it supposed to be doing, but inadvertently competing with a websites' own Dark Mode, until adjusted or "Auto" Dark Mode is sometimes simply turned off for a particular site that may not need Noir’s attention. —— Love this app, right down to the Dark Mode choices: Dark, Black, Gray, Sepia and Dracula.
