Amazon Dark Mode

Looking for a new TV, but would like to compare products, brands, read reviews, read more reviews and suddenly spent at least an hour staring at the bright white screen. It’s no surprise that consumers in the US only spend 10x more minutes on Amazon than they do while visiting the rest of the top 10 retailers combined. (source marketingcharts.com)
Not to mention, if you’re on such a research quest, chances are you’re doing it late at night after work. For an occasional purchase of some household essentials, you might find it quicker to do it on your smartphone, but you’d use your laptop in most cases.

The bottom line is this: People use their PCs to shop on Amazon, and they spend a lot of time. One big problem is that Amazon doesn’t offer a dark mode or any darker user interface that can help its visitors reduce the eyestrain they feel from spending a lot of time in it.
