The option to switch between a light and a dark theme is getting more and more popular.

However, every site implements this feature differently. It could be useful for power users to have a global option in the browser to switch between light and dark themes which gets applied to all websites.

As far as I know there is no standard (tag, attribute, handler, css-attribute, etc.) which would define such a behavior. Even if there isn't, is there a convention between web developers which is similar to this?

  • This question does not appear to be about webmastering within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about webmastering. This may be a better fit at User Experience. Be sure to read their FAQ before posting to make sure your question meets their requirements. – John Conde Jul 20 '18 at 14:20
  • Oh! Thank you for the hint. I wasn't sure if it fits here. According to Wikipedia, webmasters include web-developers too, that's why I asked it here. If you have the necessary permissions, would you mind moving the question to User Experience? I read through the FAQ and it should fit. Regarding the tags (if I can't edit them once the question is moved), could you use themes, usability, websites, standards, user-centered-design instead of the current ones there? Thank you very much in advance! – Max Fuxjäger Jul 20 '18 at 15:46
  • PPS: I deemed this question part of web-development, not web-design, since it is concerned with the implementation. But I agree, its mainly about user experience. – Max Fuxjäger Jul 20 '18 at 15:48
  • As I see that you have been active meanwhile, I'll take this as a non-verbal "do it yourself". Okay. Duplication is not my problem. – Max Fuxjäger Jul 22 '18 at 21:46
