Webstore Link:


A simple chrome extension to activate a dark mode to the ecosia search engine. This extension allows to toggle a dark mode to the 'ecosia.org' site and includes a "new tab" page in dark also.
Ecosia is a search engine that uses the profits generated by your online research to plant trees where the need is greatest. They have a free browser extension for you to save the planet: https://bit.ly/2xmtfVl

You simply have to install the chrome extension. In the extention popup, you can enable or disable the dark mode.

Please feel free to offer me ideas or let me know about potential issues here: https://github.com/gmirmand/ecosia-dark-mode/issues

Previously, we use the tabs function/permissions to retrieve the domain name. However, this requires the user to share his history which is bad. So here is a fix to do it in another way
v1.1.4 > 09/04/2019
Alert message more relevant and a little graphic fix
v1.1.3 > 30/03/2019
Blocking the extension (and user alerting) if we are not on ecosia.org domain
v1.1.2 > 28/03/2019
Add preventive alerts
v1.1.1 > 24/03/2019
Fix some stylish issue due to ecosia update
Add a Google form in extension popup

We already have ideas such as:
>Add translation
>Dark-mode switch impact 'new tab' page
>Switch to allow dark mode to activate itself from a certain time
>Propose to choose activation slots
>Choose the color variables

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
