Stack Overflow, the popular question and answer site for developers and software engineers, announced a new dark mode today. The company says the mode has been the site’s most upvoted feature request ever.

 

It looks like, well, a dark mode. Here’s a screenshot, provided by Stack Overflow:

You can turn on dark mode by clicking on your profile, “Edit profile and settings,” and “preferences,” the company tells The Verge.

 

Making dark mode took almost a year, but work accelerated on it earlier this year after an engineer had an idea to launch an “ultra dark mode” as a joke at an internal hackathon, the company says. Work on the ultra dark mode contributed to the actual dark mode that’s here today.

 

The company is also launching that ultra dark mode as an Easter egg, which will be available from April 1st through April 3rd. Here’s what that looks like if you’re curious. It doesn’t seem that useful to me, but it is indeed very dark.

Stack Overflow plans to bring dark mode out of beta by the end of the second quarter of this year. If you want to turn on system-wide dark mode on your iOS, Android, macOS, or Windows 10 devices while you’re browsing Stack Overflow, you can follow our guide right here.
