The Dark Mode toggle in the Chrome extension is fantastic. Are there plans for a Firefox Add-On as well? If not, are there plans to add Dark Mode as a user-level toggle (not org-wide theme/branding) directly within Salesforce?
Dark Mode in Chrome is a big win, but the Firefox users (and likely Safari users) would really appreciate the feature as well!

Hello! This Dark Mode community was a tremendous help in driving adoption of our new Lightning Extension but we heard A LOT of feedback about the lack of admin control over which features end users could enable. Well, wait no longer. We've just rolled out a new page in Set Up (just search for Lightning Extension in the Set Up tree) and as an admin you can allow/disallow each indivudal feature. Please share with your fellow admins!

@JoeRyan Thank you for sharing this. It made it super easy to get to dark mode in Google Chrome. To confirm is dark mode only available in Chrome? Is there a way to make that happen in Safari? I can change Safari to dark mode, but the website still appears in light mode, unless I use reader view and of course that option isn't available when diving into the org. Is there a way to get dark mode on Safari? Any insight would be helpful. Thanks again

We've been working on a new free app called "Restyler" that let's you design and create custom themes - it comes with a bunch of default themes including a "Dark Mode":
It's all on-platform so you don't need to worry about browser extensions, and you can assign themes per Profile and per App.
It's still in Beta so there's a bunch of graphical stuff we need to update (especially after Winter 20 just dropping!) but we'd love to get peoples feedback on it.
You can install the Beta from the AppExchange here, and you can give us feedback here

Hi Morgan - it's a mix. The plug-in allows us to release enhancements sooner, in some cases. Based on usage and feedback, we may then prioritize buliding specific features into the core product. However, there are features that are easier to implement through the plug-in approach, and may remain that way. We evaluate it on a feature-by-feature basis.

I'm a bit confused by the latest update from SFDC regarding the Chrome Extension. While I appreciate having the ability to add an extension to handle this feature and turn it on/off at my leisure, I am still hoping that this will become a natively supported Out-of-the-box Lightning feature that users can turn on/off themselves via their individual settings, so that no extensions are necessary and so that I don't have to force Chrome on all users who may prefer Firefox, etc.
Is the extension just being used as kind of a 'pre-release' staging area for items not built into the UI yet, or should I expect Dark Mode to never be added natively to the UI?
