  • (2023-09-06) igor beli: хорошее расширение
  • (2023-09-05) D C: All it does is change the background to green i.e. makes it brighter. I'm using Google Experiments (GE) "Auto Dark Mode for Web Contents" just changed it from "enabled" to "HSL.... and no difference. Presumably many who have an interest in intelligent viewing would use both so perhaps there should be some reference to compatibility with GE and other dark mode extensions.
  • (2023-09-05) kuzkina matuhka: эффект даже больше чем обещано. однозначно кинотеатр, в тот момент когда еще не начался фильм, а свет уже гаснет - всё потемнело
  • (2023-08-30) дмитрий чистяков: все очень хорошо работает молодци
  • (2023-08-28) Steve Berry: Waste of time and space. Really, a dark overlay. Complete rubbish.
  • (2023-08-27) Brajesh Sharma: It works great on youtube but , if any section having a background video, it effect in that too also because of that actions cant be make on it for eg. https://www.pexels.com/@pressmaster/ video grid is disturbed
  • (2023-08-26) Brad Sharp: I don't see the point. I click the icon in the tool bar and everything gets much dimmer. The white text becomes dark gray on a very dark background, making it unreadable. Whenever I click anything, everything goes back to normal. I can find no settings anywhere to customize the experience. When I click on "options", I expect to see options. However, I'm taken to a Youtube page that requires me to subscribe to move forward. Sorry to sound negative. But the user experience and apparent functionality are very lacking.
  • (2023-08-21) Z: When I was searching how to make Dark Reader ignore the video controls in embeds, not a major issue since the video itself wasn't inverted, I stumbled upon an article written by a staff member of this extension, "3 Reasons to Move from Dark Reader to Turn Off the Lights Best Tool", so I figured I'd try it out and it's inferior to Dark Reader in all regards, it just adds a transparent mask over the entire page and doesn't invert anything. Then I actually read the article, thinking what the heck how is this better? They doxed the name and location of a Dark Reader developer in that article... Then I see the uninstall pop-ups and some of the replies to the reviews here... The staff for this extension are unhinged charlatans.
  • (2023-08-18) Frances Mitchell: extremely hard to use and completely ineffective for pinterest
  • (2023-08-16) Shane Armstrong: dark
  • (2023-08-14) Randy Martin: Used to love it, as it blocked the majority of Twitch's invasive ads, every 10 mins for 2 mins. Now it stopped doing that completely
  • (2023-08-10) Rafe Goldberg: This extension does not require access to all my browsing activity just to dim a YouTube page. Further, when I tried to uninstall, they throw a million pop ups in your way to confuse you. Clear spammer vibes. All of which suggests that this extension is a data mining op, whoring you/your data out to third parties all for a minor convenience which I'm sure other, more limited extensions do just as well. Do not install! And if you have, uninstall.
  • (2023-08-04) Aliyah Roma Gorro: I absolutely love this extension!! I've been finding a extension so I can protect my eyes when I'm surfing the web during night time and this extension is literally perfect!! For the people who are having trouble with this, they have a lot of videos of it on youtube which is very helpful if you have any confusion on how it works but I love it how they're so considering about the users which in my opinion is a 10000/10 for me :)

  • (2023-06-07) Alan Hughes: Doesn't work. It just hides the 60fps options and only shows the low res options which were all already 30fps anyways...
  • (2023-06-06) Jonathan Noel: The extension is good, but once you peak at the permissions it defaults too... it mysteriously includes payment info, 3rd party sign in, and protected content ID.... THIS EXTENSION IS MALICIOUS! Block and remove immediately!

  • (2023-04-05) No Plastic: It is a nice addon but I have one complaint which is when I refresh the video it restarts from the begining and not remembering the point I was on before refreshing. Is there a setting for this I can set or it is by design? Thanks a lot!
  • (2023-04-04) Papryk: I can't believe people give some many 5 start, for me it works terribly. Google translate from hard to watch turned to hard to use. There are some colors configurations and they don't work properly.

  • (2023-02-27) antonio espinosa martinez: genialmente útil
  • (2023-02-26) Yagamy Light: So, the only reason I installed it is to zoom inside a video to see something up close, which is advertised on the extensions' youtube channel. Well, it's utterly broken. The zooming-in per se works, but it's unusable. First of, after you zoomed-in you need to move to the portion of the screen you wanna see. You can't do that by dragging stuff around, you have to click buttons on a panel. And by "click" I mean really it: holding down the button does nothing, you have to click the button like a hundred of times, because each one moves the square by like a few millimeters. To make things worse, changing the movement direction between horizontal and vertical sometimes makes video reload, losing all progress completely, so good luck having another hundred of clicks. After stroking that for like a five minutes I finally managed to get the zoom. Well, guess what then happened? I full-screened the video, and it simply lost the zoom 🤷‍♂️ Amazing. Not gonna try that… thing again. Removing.
