It automatically forces a dark mode to every website, even those that don’t have their own. It works with any website you visit in Safari, and you can customize the extension to your liking.

You can pick a different dark theme, and even choose Noir’s dark mode over a website’s existing dark mode if you like it better.Download Noir from App Store.
If you use Apple Maps, this is a Safari extension worth knowing and having. You’ve probably noticed that when you type in any address on Google in Safari and click on the directions, it takes you directly to Google Maps, instead of Apple Maps. So, if you prefer using Apple Maps, you have to copy and paste the address, which can be very annoying. Mapper is an extension that automatically redirects Google Maps links from Safari to Apple Maps, saving you time and hassle to manually enter the address.Download Mapper from App Store.
