As specified here, I have enabled MacOS's dark mode however, the Chrome browser doesn't become dark. It's expected that webpages, toolbars, etc all become dark.

dark mode nor working in chrome

I wanted to avoid third-party Chrome plugins/extensions as they can inject scripts in my browser. Any idea why is the dark mode for Chrome not working?

The Chrome version I'm using is Version 78.0.3904.108 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Chrome doesn't change the content of web pages to dark mode, but it can be made to.

It's experimental, so at your peril...

Put chrome://flags into the address bar and hit enter. Search for "Dark Mode", enable it, and relaunch Chrome.
