How to change the Chrome Inspect Tools theme to Dark

You can now choose the dark side in DevTools from Chrome 48. If you didn't knew anything about this feature, here you'll learn how to enable the dark theme to protect our fabulous eyes in the nights (or only to make everything looks cooler).

How to enable Dark theme

To enable the dark theme press F12 (inspect element or go to settings > more settings > developer tools). Once the developers tools are shown, go to the top corner of the menu (on the expand button) and choose settings (or press F1 directly if the developers tools is visible).
