It is ridiculous that google search does not have dark theme. But, other google products like youtube, gmail, keep have...

    Ehhhm. Excuse me sir @sadransh, Do you have a moment to talk about our lord and savior, DuckDuckGo?

    @N00bPancakes @beleg i changed my default for a while ago to Duckduckgo. After weeks I found myself trying the same quary on google and getting better results. So I switched back to google. Think google team should go on a couple of internships and learn from guys at duckduckgo.

    @sadransh yeah I've been switching back and forth.

    I really just need to do an omi search ;)

    They tried it in the app, it looks shit, I think it's better in light mode

    @theabbie i think dark app is better than nothing. And if the design in app is not good. It's the problem of designer not the dark mode. Just checkout duckduckgo result in darkmode. It's perfect!! body

    @sadransh In my opinion, Dark mode is just not suitable for search engines, You don't spend too much time on it, so, it's not actually needed, Otherwise, you are free to make your own theme

    @sadransh Comparison

    @N00bPancakes for mobile, I use Google Go via Magic search bar on home screen. The start-up screen is brighter than thousand suns.

    Same for their web, search, results, all screens are white.

    YouTube does have a dark theme along with Gmail (but in Gmail one has to customise the theme and not standard dark theme).

    However, YouTube dark theme sometimes randomly switches to white and if I am not prepared, I often scream in terror.

    @theabbie thnks for comparison. It's more about user preference I think and the option should have been placed by now. 🤦🏻‍♂️

    With a good approximation, I often predict which queries are meant to be googled, for which DDG's bang commands come in handy.

    It's usually when I need google's language abilities, like when I doubt the exact word, or looking for similar concepts. DDG is also trash in my mother tongue (which is yours too i guess?) But for technical stuff, DDG does the job.

    @sadransh Given that it's so easy to implement and they haven't implemented it yet, it's evident they are not willing to do so, Hope it's not so.

    @beleg i've never tried mother tongue on ddg. In terms of thechnical i did not get good results so my word choice might be the reason

    The app on Android is now also in dark mode. Was the bright star that fucked me up in the evening for a long time though
