Yandex is best known in the west as Russia’s leading search engine. And while that characterization is accurate, Yandex is involved in many more projects outside of Search; from food delivery, to ride sharing, to storage – the Yandex influence extends across the entire digital landscape in Russia. Included in those additional services and products is Yandex.Browser, a popular web browser in Russia.
In November, Yandex introduced a dark panel theme for their Yandex.Browser. A dark theme has long been requested by the global Internet community. Yandex heard the clamoring, and the feature is now accessible in both Windows and MacOS versions of their Y.Browser.
A segment of the Users argue that a Dark Theme is less distracting, and creates an experience easier to concentrate in. Interested users can make the adjustment in Settings>Interface>Appearance Settings>Color Scheme.
Yandex.Browser currently has 20% market share in Russia.
