Here is a quick guide on how to get Dark Mode working on Google Chrome. In an effort to save battery, and presumably also for a better UI look, Google has been continuously adding Dark Mode to its various apps. Basically, with Dark Mode enabled, all whites are turned into blacks so that the display consumes quite less power.
