But Chrome 74 for mobile is shipping with an improved data saver feature called Lite mode that reduces data usage by up to 60 percent.

One thing to keep in mind if you're like me and have a custom Chrome theme is that the dark mode might look a little amusing on your computer. Just add the parameter to the Chrome shortcut to force the browser to enable dark mode.

Chrome 74 also brings the option to disable animations that might cause motion sickness for some users. With Chrome 74 however, the browser creates a temporary virtual file system that makes it look like the browser is operating in its regular browsing mode, effectively removing the distinction between the two as far as external websites can tell. Now it seems like Google Chrome for Android ...

Google Chrome's dark mode. According to Google itself, the feature is now available for a small number of Chrome 74 users, but it should go live for all Windows 10 users shortly. For now, if you've got dark mode (or you chose to force it), head down to the comments section and let us know what you think of it! Lazy loading prioritizes the loading of visible content over content that is not visible on a page. While the update brings tons of changes and improvements all around, one of the best features has to be the new Dark Mode.

As seen in the image on the left, you can enable Lite mode on your Android device by opening Chrome and going to Settings - Lite mode. They should then relaunch Chrome to fully enable it. And to do so, simply go to Settings Personalization Choose the color Dark, that's it now you are done.

This behavior was first introduced in Google Chrome 73 for macOS, so with Chrome 74, the same feature lands on Microsoft's Windows 10 as well.
