  • (2024-05-27) Nono: [Edit] Deserves the 5 star : very responsive developer. The extension does what it says. Had two issues with auto-dim and context menu. Mailed the same to the developer and the issue was fixed in the new update quickly. 👍

  • (2024-04-04) Rafe Goldberg: This extension works, but why does it require access to all my browsing activity just to dim a YouTube page!? And when I tried to uninstall, it throws a million annoying popups in the way to try to confuse you… Spammer vibes.
  • (2024-03-27) Crystal Gambill Boss: i love this extension its awesome
  • (2024-03-20) Ankit Kumar: Best
  • (2024-03-09) Florian Gottwlad: The extension was recommended to me as a dark mode for GDrive. But what good is a dark mode if it covers the page and switches off as soon as you click on something. Quite useless.
  • (2024-02-25) Cino: Es un buen concepto, sin embargo; es muy innecesario. Pero eso ya depende de quien se los quiera instalar. A mí me ocurrió un problema, desde la última vez que inicié la extensión el fondo de mi Google Chrome queda con el efecto de oscurecer y por más que los desinstale no se va ese efecto. Saludos.
  • (2024-02-20) Семен Урванцев: гут
  • (2024-02-17) Андрей Тодаев: отличное обновление
  • (2024-02-15) Ben Schaefer: Utter trash. Marketed via SEO and otherwise to the top of the results as a "dark mode" method for websites that don't have it, but it doesn't accomplish even the basics of that.
  • (2024-02-11) Николай Агафонов: Хорогшее расширение.
  • (2024-02-08) Юрий Улыбышев: хорош
  • (2024-02-01) Piotr R: VERY USEFUL
  • (2024-01-25) J acked: It seems okay I'm experimenting with it again after Dark Reader. And also Chromes own default dark mode. I can't get voice activation to work at all, even after updates. What is happening here? I'd also like to display just the video center screen with black all around it and hide the rest of the browser. Can you make an option for this? Just display the video.
  • (2024-01-24) WALÉKA Andruschenko: Рекомендую ВСЕМ!!!!

  • (2024-01-03) Brittany: does not full screen video in browser window merely dims the screen
  • (2023-12-30) Roberto Garcia Duffy: Es efectiva realmente esta extencion al 30-12-23
  • (2023-12-16) uJTora: Non so se un mio problema. Ho installato quest'estensione da circa 3 anni (o forse più, non ricordo di preciso, è comunque tanto) e la uso principalmente per riprodurre i video a qualità più elevata possibile (visto che secondo Youtube la mia connessione non regge, anche se regge anche troppo bene). Da qualche giorno, circa 3, sto notando che con quest'estensione attiva i video nella playlist non si riproducono automaticamente, disattivo quest'estensione e funziona tutto come dovrebbe, l'attivo e youtube non riproduce automaticamente il prossimo video. Ho provato a contattare via email l'assistenza ma ci sono talmente tanti task da fare prima di contattarli che ci ho perso le speranze, spero che leggendo questa recensione (ne dubito ma è l'ultimo tentativo che ho prima di disinstallarla) possano sistemare il problema nel minor tempo possibile.

  • (2023-12-05) Cúc Đặng Thị Kim: rất tuyện vời
  • (2023-12-02) Joshua Posey: Garbage. Doesn't actually activate dark mode in apps and doesn't recolor the screen for low-light conditions. Just puts a dark transparency over bright screen items, a transparency which turns off the moment you click on anything.
  • (2023-11-23) William Callender: useless

  • (2023-10-10) A: Forced to sell your data to TOTLs partners. Tragic, used you religiously previously. Never again.
  • (2023-10-09) Data Twist: I liked it. But needs some improvements. For me, it's not blending well with the YT dark.
