In 2020 lots of sites support dark themes. Some examples include search engines, social networks, video hostings, source code hostings, message boards.
Many of them detect which theme is set in the current OS or browser using the `prefers-color-scheme-dark` CSS media query and apply the same theme to the site . More info can be found by searching `prefers-color-scheme-dark` on the internet. Other sites allow to switch themes manually. And some of them can change theme either manually or sync it with OS depending on the user's choice. Also all major operating systems and browsers have dark themes.
I know that there are dark user styles and browser extensions which replace site backgrounds with dark colors, but result frequently looks bad and after any changes of the site structure and site CSS styles these user styles and extensions might stop working properly. So native dark site themes are always preferred. And in case of Upwork apps there's no way to use such extensions.
So I think it's time to implement dark theme for Upwork site, Upwork desktop tracker app and Upwork mobile apps. Dark themes save my eyes so much when working at night and I will be so grateful to Upwork team for a dark theme.

Unpopular opinion. While you guys are on upgrading things around here, a Dark Mode for Upwork would be excellent. Thanks in advance! 😁
It's dead simple to force dark mode onto errything.
All you need do is open the hidden Chrome menu and turn it on.
Note that this won't end the blinding green but it will go some ways.
