Is Grammarly in dark mode possible?

Currently, the Grammarly browser extension, desktop, and mobile apps do not have a built-in dark mode feature. However, the browser extension can be used in conjunction with a browser’s dark mode feature such as Google Chrome’s dark mode, Mozilla Firefox’s dark mode, or Safari’s dark mode. This would change the background color of the browser to dark and the Grammarly extension’s background color will follow the browser’s color scheme, resulting in a dark mode experience.

What health advantages for Grammarly in dark mode?

As a writing tool, Grammarly does not have any specific health advantages when used in dark mode, as its main function is to check grammar, spelling, and punctuation, and provide suggestions for style and tone. However, using Grammarly in dark mode can have the same benefits as using any other application or website in dark mode, including:

  1. Reduced eye strain: Dark mode can reduce the amount of bright white light emitted from screens, which can cause eye strain and fatigue. This can be especially beneficial when using Grammarly for long periods of time or in low-light environments.
  2. Improved sleep: The blue light emitted from screens can interfere with the body’s production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep. Dark mode can help to reduce the amount of blue light emitted from the screen, which can make it easier for users to fall asleep after using Grammarly.
  3. Reduced glare: The bright white background in light mode can create glare, making it difficult to see the text on the screen. Dark mode can reduce this glare, making it easier to read and navigate Grammarly.
  4. Increased battery life: On mobile devices, the dark mode can help to save battery life because the screen uses less power to display dark pixels than it does to display white pixels.

It’s important to note that the benefits of dark mode will depend on the individual and the specific circumstances. Some people may find that dark mode causes more strain on the eyes while others might find it more comfortable to use. Additionally, there is no scientific evidence that dark mode offers specific health benefits when used with Grammarly, the benefits are mostly based on the fact that dark mode reduces the amount of blue light emitted from the screen which can affect melatonin production and consequently the sleep.
