Image from store Sites Dimmer - sharp brightness reduction
Description from store Sites Dimmer automatically dims light-themed sites. New: - You can override the brightness for each site separately. - Color inversion function available if you really want to darken. Key features: - Automatically determines theme types and turns on only on sites that have not bothered to create a theme for the dark mode. - When reducing the brightness does not modify the color, everything looks as designed by the site. - You control the brightness dimming level. - If necessary, you can enable or disable dimming for each individual site. - The extension icon indicates whether the current site brightness is dimmed.

  • (2021-09-21) Arturo Garcia: It is just what I was looking for: an extension to dim the colors (brightness) in the browser. I am a web developer and needed to see the real colors in a website I was working on, so I wanted to dim the colors instead of inverting them, like Dark mode extensions do (although I still use them). So if you really need or want to enjoy a website in its original color and protect your eyes, I highly recommend this extension.
  • (2021-09-19) Thanasi Shollaj: That invert color is very good option but that font family that appears when you enable it on youtube really hurts your eyes.

  • (2020-10-07) Aansherina: Deleted my previous review as the things I have problems with were resolved. I really liked the "Invert Colors" features, especially the change of link color to a soft orange (At least in YT), My only problem with this is the thing where you can find the play and other buttons which has a bit of a awkward ombre, and takes up about a quarter. You won't notice it's a video filled with colors like "The Better Boarding Method Airlines Won't Use" by CGP Grey, where It is barely noticable past the bar, You'll only notice that the bar that holds the play and the such buttons are a little lighter though if you watched a video that has black borders, you'll notice it, not really a dealbreaker, but kind of awkward-looking. The first video I watched was "Fiction Blue / Hatsune Miku" by "Ayase / Yoasobi" where I clearly noticed it but you'll see it more clearly by watching a video with a black screen, In honesty I would have not even notice if it weren't for the black borders of the said video. Also really liked the fact that the dimmer is still there even if It's not useful for me and liked the fact that it changes automatically.
  • (2020-09-16) Aansherina: For some reason, the first time I tried it out instead of dimming it, it did the opposite, so I uninstalled it and went back to this page but then found out I *had* to download this again to review it, so I did and I downloaded it, then I tested it out again after writing a semi-complete review and found out it was actually now doing it's job, but it's kind of an ehh, I think it would be great if we can change the colors, since I wasn't really too fond of the dark grey (It wasn't dark enough for me) and the search bar and bookmarked isn't affected so there's this disharmony and it exaggerate the greyness to it, overall, I think we should have more options, since grey isn't dark enough, atleast for me. and somehow get it to affect the bookmarked and search bar Edit : Had to download this again, since I forgot to "turn it off" even though i had uninstalled it :/
  • (2019-12-29) Adam Paplinski: Works great! Does not change the way site looks, only dimms what hurts my eyes.
  • (2019-11-26) 张际新: 非常满意,找遍各种插件,只有这个能够实现简单的亮度调节功能,我要的就是简单
