Chrome 74 is officially released for Windows, Mac, and Linux. A new dark mode has been introduced for Windows 10 users. In Chrome OS 73, the same dark mode appeared in macOS last month, and today's update includes automatic Windows 10 support. Chrome will automatically apply the theme itself if dark mode is enabled on Windows 10. As a result, Chrome looks almost the same as the browser's dark incognito menu bar.
