(An online) Dark Mode for Antidote

Unlike its macOS cousin, Druide Antidote for Windows doesn’t come with a dark theme. A lack that makes it very hard to read, at least for me.

One thing you might not know is that, if you’re using the latest Antidote 10, you probably also have a free access to their new-but-in-beta web version: all their guides and the spellchecker, directly in a web browser.

So, you can use Antidote in Dark Mode, as long as you load it in a web browser that support some dark mode extensions.

Out of curiosity, I tried to load it as a PWA, using the beta version of Edge-Chrome.

It works fine. And since it’s a PWA, you can pin it as any app to the Start menu and to the Taskbar.Making it even faster to access. You can also change Antidote’s settings to make it use the web version by default, instead of the classic app—but be aware that, while in beta, Druide will analyze any text that you correct through their website.

The main difference is that, unlike the classic installed app, you must be connected to the Internet to use the PWA version. But, hey, at least it’s there and it has a dark mode 😉
