Google Search is the most used search engine in the world, and we do not expect this to change anytime soon. Now, the landing page is one of the most popular pages on the internet, but the color has always been white. Now, there is nothing wrong with the color white, but not everyone loves to look at a white background, especially if the page is something we use on a daily basis. It would seem as if Google agreed with this sentiment and decided to add the option for users to switch to a Dark background.
