One question for clarification on this - by dark theme, are you talking about just modifying the elements of the browser to have a dark theme, or are you talking about more of a traditional "night mode" for website rendering? A dark theme is great, but it's even better if it includes modifying the websites to display with inverted/dark color themes (black page with white text, etc).
Two examples of browsers that currently do this pretty well are Lightning Browser and Peregrine Browser. Lightning has been around longer, and has a more uniform inverted color scheme, but it does have a few quirks such as inverting images and videos, as well. Normally, the images correct themselves after a page fully loads, but videos remain with their inverted colors, which can cause some very funky looking videos. Alternatively, Peregrine Browser does not have that inverted image problem, however with that implementation, the rendering of the night mode happens after the loading of the page, which can sometimes lead to a brief flash of "normal" page rendering before switching to the night mode rendering.
I definitely think a night mode should be high on the list as far as new features go, though, as for many of us, it's much easier on the eyes.
