By msmash from Slashdot's diy department:
It appears Google has quietly introduced a new "dark mode" for its video portal YouTube, several people are reporting. Here's how to activate it, via The Next Web: 1. Open the Chrome developer tools tab. 2. Windows users can do this by pressing Ctrl + Shift + I. 3. Mac users can do this by pressing Option + Cmd + I. 4. Select the Console tab. 5. Once in Console, paste the following text: document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=fPQ4jCL6EiE" 6. Hit enter. 7. Close the developer tools tab and refresh the page. Just a little heads-up: YouTube might look slightly different -- though still in white. 8. Click the main settings menu in the top right and find the 'Dark Mode' section. 9. Toggle 'Dark Mode' on and you're settled.
