Now open source! Check out the source code and contribute here: https://github.com/MarcGuiselin/screen-shader 😁Do your eyes a favor, Install Screen Shader! 😍The most popular screen tinting application for Chrome! 🧐This extension is in not endorsed by or affiliated to f.lux Software LLC. Computer displays produce bright blue light which can strain your eyes late at night and interfere with your sleeping cycle. Screen Shader is designed to tint your computer display a “cozy” orange color to reduce eye-strain, eye fatigue, and restore day/night balance, while also providing a wide variety of settings for everyone's different tastes!

YouTube, Facebook, Reddit, you name it! 👍Continually tested on windows, mac, and chrome OS, and is constantly being bugfixed and updated with feedback from its users. 🤟Includes these keyboard shortcuts to control the shade: ALT SHIFT UP to increase ALT SHIFT DOWN to decrease ALT SHIFT S to toggle on or off And many more! Edit them in the menu. 📨Send me an email, or comment here. I'll usually reply in a day or two! 😀 Be sure to read the research that this extension is based off of: https://justgetflux.com/research.html 📞Contact me at screenshaderapp@gmail.com ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rate this extension Q: I'm young and have good eyes. I don't need this. A: Young teens may be twice as sensitive to light at night, and the elderly much less so. These results have important implications for schools, senior care, and device usage at night, too. Simply put: everyone has a use for this and will notice benefits from decreased blue light. Q: Why not G.lux or Night Light? A: Other extensions like G.Lux or Night Light just change your display's color. Screen Shader is the only extension available that smartly changes the color of your screen throughout the day using sunset/sunrise times! Research has proven that the circadian rhythm is tied to solar time. Individuals have shown greater preference for screen tinting applications that take that into account. Q: Does this really remove blue light from my display? A: Yup! Screens work by individually tweaking the amount of red, green, and blue each pixel of your emits. Pixels being the small square of colors that together form the image. Screen Shader alters the coloration of websites to a redder color. To show these colors, the display will tweak its pixels to show more red light, less green light, and considerably less blue light; but just enough so you can still see different colors. The more you increase the shade, the more the color of the website will be reddened, the less your computer display will emit blue light! Q: Why do I need this? Can’t I simply change my screen's brightness? A: Changing the luminosity does not remove white and blue light from your display. Those colors are still unnatural and will irritate your eyes, even if dimmed. A full day in front of your computer can wreak havoc upon your melatonin cycle and internal clock. The unnatural light can also harm your eye retina. Screen Shader is designed to considerably reduce these effects by eliminating enough white and blue light to provide you with the best browsing experience and eye comfort.

Added ctrl alt scroll shortcut, and now keyboard shortcuts affect all tabs Added the language option Fixed a few bugs relating to the custom url option Wrote a global system that manages shading settings on every tab simultaneously When settings are changed, it affects all the tabs at the same time, so you don't see a blink or a flash when you change tabs Page reload is no longer required on install 1.0: Uploaded to web store. yay :D Added fullscreen mode Added shaded scrollbar Added custom urls option Added a larger color selection interface + a new color picking menu Added a install page to thank you guys for downloading the extension!

Removes dark mode from some of my dark theme websites, eg. https://finviz.com even when Screen Shader is disabled. It also blocks some buttons on those websites. Not good unless fixed. Uninstalled and solved. Installed a different night shift mode extension without these bugs.

Overall love this extension. I noticed it interferes with the ability to click buttons on certain websites like this one https://www.strazcenter.org/ Maybe because of the font color?
