yes, that would be great. Just a basic theme, no need to change much just, minimalist is ok.

There are extensions that can be added to browsers to do this.

I'm using Chrome and added NightShift

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search/change%20colors?hl=en

 

You can set it to switch on at sunset and also choose the general color to use.

Works well enough for me. I like the blue tint.

 

Dark Reader is another great option. So is Flux. Flux is free (not an extension) and works on Mac and Windows.

I have to use upwork for hours... dark theme is my only cure.

Try Dark Reader (plug in, but doesn't always work great with Google Docs so double check them before sending them to a client IF you use that. Or try Flux (google just get flux). I use Flux. It's also free. It works on both Mac and Windows. I leave mine on Candlelight or Ember most of the time because I have severe light sensitivity. Hope that helps you.

Please implement a dark theme. 

Hi Tony, 


Please know that this has already been suggested before, and it doesn't look like it will be implemented anytime soon. If this changes, we'll make sure to announce it here in the Community.

Why not? If it's highly desired, why not implement this option?

Dear all,

I know that a lot of you work with Dark Themes, for example my Adobe Suite is all Dark and almost all of my apps. Although I use the Upwork mobile app quite a lot, I would love to see the option of a Dark theme for both the website and app as it will really benefit our eyes. How can we provide an official request to the Upwork Team so this is slightly considered?

Kind Regards
Zharko

Don't feel very comfortable around 3rd-party extensions and apps.

A built-in dark mode on UpWork would be really nice. It doesn't even have to be on client-side. Just here on freelancer-side would do.

It's not a magic trick, I'm just using Firefox with the add-on called Dark Mode. All websites background are modified and this is the result on our loved Upwork ๐Ÿ™‚

I remember I've read some posts about the difficulties on reading for someone in here, and I hope this solution may help them too.

Nice, Nicola!

I just had to edit the thread because your first image had some identifying information, which we do not allow in the Community. Here's the Community Guidelines for your reference. Hope that's fine with you!

Thank you Avery! I think I forgot to cover my name...

Another forum page linked me here.

If you're a chrome user, you can download and install extensions which can switch the page to dark mode.

Use it all the time when browsing the web at night

Thank you, buddy! This is quite the addon. Still would love to see a dark theme on the android and ios app. ๐Ÿ™‚

I would love to see a Dark Mode Theme in Upwork. As I know most of the Freelancer work with their freedom they might work at night Like Me. Most of the time I work at night time so it will be a great option for me if Upwork Team can make a Dark theme for us. 

what do you guys think?

Thanks

Hi Md Nafiul,

 

Thank you for your feedback, I'll be sure to share this to our team for consideration.

Hi Joanne,
Thank You 

Long story short, upwork make that option or not, doesnt matter.

Just search for darkmode extension for whatever browser you are using and you will be able to turn any website dark with just one click.

Iโ€™ve just installed my extension for safari.

Problem solved!!

Cheers!

Interesting idea.
But I'm here to tell you that Upwork is a world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night.

Hey @Preston,
Thanks for your feedback. 
But I am a little bit confused about your last line. 
Actually, what do you mean?

So when Preston calls up that shrink in Beverly Hills

Sorry, Nafiul, I canโ€™t support your idea. For many years, Upwork team has not been able to bring the Light Mode to a more or less acceptable state. Their attempt to implement Dark Mode will definitely ruin this website completelyโ€ฆ

I disagree, I Spent so much time looking for jobs when I don't have one and this mode is TOO BRIGHT for my eyes sir... It will make it LOOK COOL...!!!!

Portfolio thumbnails should look clear and sharp, not blurry. This is especially important for freelancers who work in the graphics area. After thousands of complains and years they have not been able to fix that, so I can't even imagine how much a dark mode would take.

Oh a dark mode would be lovely. One vote more for this.

You have my voice, bro

Here's a qucik rendition on how it might look based on the job feed. Would really love to have this option as working at night with all that #FFFFFF and #F2F2F2 around is a tad bit tiresome.
