I have a lot of reading tasks and it becomes hard to read pdf's with white background during the night.

I will love to have a option that turns on the dark reading where the background is black and text is white.

 

I know there is a flag for dark mode in chromium browsers. But that's really a pain the way it works, for just changing colours from light to dark using it. Complete restart of browser is required.

Even if I turn that flag on, its hard to decipher the pdf toolbar buttons. Its that it doesn't work properly.

 

I am seeking for a solution which would on click of a button change the colours of the pdf or website and does not require restarting the browser. I read locally stored pdf's and extensions don't work on these.

 

If this feature is shipped in the browser, it would be great.

Hello 

That's what my screen always looks like! I use high contrast - it causes all elements to be with black PDF background too always - by default I have Edge I don't want Chrome - takes too much resources!

If I want a white background for PDF it applies another program to pdf.

In high contrast, change the settings of the graphics card to a warm color!
