This is the worse dark mode

This app is the worse ! I have installed it twice and it does not work and it does not change the screen brightness at all !

Not bad but not that great either

I like the dimming but sometimes it's too hard to find items on a page with how it dims almost everything. The browser itself feels slow but it's too new so I can't judge based on older and more refined browser apps like chrome or ff. My major gripe with it is that the search engine it uses doesn't delete the recent typed in searches when you press the "x" to remove it. Other than that it's fine as a browser.
