Reading a bright screen at night can be harsh on the eyes. A popular way to reduce eye strain is to use a dark background with light-colored text. The Dolphin browser for Android now supports night-time reading with a new add-on called Night Mode.

To enable Night Mode, you first have to install the add-on, Night Mode For Dolphin Browser. Once installed, swipe your Dolphin screen to the left for quick access to your add-ons. Tap on Night Mode to turn it on.

Now when you view a Web page, the screen will be dimmed for easier reading at night.

That's it. You may also want to consider installing Dolphin's Jetpack add-on as well. Dolphin claims that it enhances the night mode experience by maintaining the dimmed screen more consistently while surfing the Web.
