  • (2022-08-15) Mohammad Sohel: it was okay when we watch a movie without doing anything but when it get darks or blurred , most of the times i cannot navigate forward or backward using pressing key. after clicking the dark area, back to the normal state and then i have to.
  • (2022-08-11) lily Wilson: 不好用,有些网站全部都黑了
  • (2022-08-04) Nikita Sheth: Not as advertised. Only converts video websites to dark mode. In spite of changing the settings for other websites, it doesn't change the mode for other websites. Also, when it changes the mode for certain google websites as the calendar and drive, it makes comprehension of the page very difficult, changes all the remaining colours and shapes on the page.
  • (2022-08-01) TeLó LuCaS: muito bom !! da um foco total nos videos... Pra melhorar podia ser automatico !
  • (2022-07-27) Erik Wand: бесполезное приложение! не работает с яндексом.
  • (2022-07-19) Marco Kropp: I use it in every webpage I can, except some that get very slow with it (Amazon).... I would suggest an option to change the shortcuts for the combination I chose.
  • (2022-07-19) mario cifuentes: indispensable tener una buena app como esta en el pc tiene unas herramientas muy adecuadas la k mas me gusto es k tiene reconosimiento de voz tambien por movimientos exelente gracias
  • (2022-07-19) King Tee: I Love extensions that have a simple job and accomplishes said job silently and effectively. So if you want a dimmer screen while watching YouTube, or have several monitors like me and just don't want them all on blinding your online videos, then this app is GREAT!
  • (2022-07-13) Facundo Della Valle: La extensión más útil de chrome, la uso hace años. Gracias!
  • (2022-07-11) Lukas: very good
  • (2022-07-10) Robin Hicks: Wish it worked on Amazon which was the original reason for getting this. I have Dark Mode on most of my pages except Amazon but this doesn't help for that because you can barely see anything.
  • (2022-07-09) idil taşdelen: ıt is perfect but they have to add a button on how to use. ıt is hard to use
  • (2022-07-06) Syaiful Anwar: this extension is awesome! it can block the youtube 60fpe/50fps, so my old system could play hd videos on youtube with the default 30fps
  • (2022-07-02) Vovan Katana: прикольная тема
  • (2022-06-29) Kevin Knox: Bugged and still causes dimming while watching YT even after removing it from chrome. I have even reinstalled chrome and the feature persists.

  • (2022-06-10) Chongba Sherpa: such a nice extension for making the background screen dim. Very useful while watching youtube videos, series & online movies.
  • (2022-06-09) Eavont Toadai: I was enjoying this extension because it helped me zoom into YouTube videos, but for some reason when I started watching Netflix with it on, it started using up too much of my GPU. On the other hand, it *does* work with YouTube and has a lot of features I think other people are glancing over. I'm giving this a 'middle of the road' review because it breaks other video-streaming websites, but works on YouTube.
  • (2022-06-08) mdtaha abuoseif: it's the worst
  • (2022-06-08) Tornado _: good
  • (2022-06-06) Вик Тор: можно улучшить
  • (2022-06-05) Michael Bailee: Did everything I needed it to, which is just giving me an option darker than YouTube's dark mode.
  • (2022-06-05) Ragendra Pal: The extension had crashed. We.are unable to download chrome..Please restore.
  • (2022-06-05) Greg Santo: It doesn't work. Sure it dims the page but as soon as you try to do anything with the page it immediately goes back to normal with the white background. And when its dimmed it dims even videos and pictures.

  • (2022-05-27) GoodMovies ApS: Our chrome extension Youtube Master can also turn off the lights while watching videos. Besides, it has other interesting features like hiding and sorting videos on the home page of Youtube.

  • (2022-04-29) Peter De Meulenaer: TOPPIE
  • (2022-04-26) Jackson Micheal: This extension is useless. Why would i download this just for dark mode on youtube. When I can enable dark mode on Youtube settings.There is no point for this extension to exist. I guess it's useful for people who don't know how to enable darkmode on the Youtube settings but still pretty useless
  • (2022-04-20) James R: Kept spamming for me to review, here's my review 1/5
  • (2022-04-20) חוה ברוידי: תוסף מדהים חובה לכל אדם שמשתמש הרבה במחשב.
  • (2022-04-16) Amir: I wish it would simply work on all white backgrounds after dark. Also, The dark mode goes away every time I click the touchpad button or bearly move my cursor anywhere on the screen. This issue is happening on all web pages,
  • (2022-04-14) Abel A: Really great extensions! To get 5 stars, my only suggestion is for the Zoom in/out feature, to have a setting to change the hotkey to control the zoom or make it be controlled by the middle mouse scroll(maybe shift+middle mouse scroll?). And after we zoomed in, if we could use the cursor too to move around the zoomed-in-image that would be very useful too, as most of the times we use this feature is to see tiny text etc somewhere else on the screen, so being able to move freely would be fantastic. Currently for both these we have to left click the buttons and its kinda tedious and slow. Cheers.

  • (2022-04-12) Juan Luis Salazar: Es excelente!🙂
  • (2022-04-04) Estrella :D: ¡Muy buena extensión!
  • (2022-03-31) Sebi Sebimm: Sehr freundlicher Entwickler, hat quasi innerhalb von Minuten geantwortet auf eine Anmerkung von mir beim (vorherigen) Deinstallieren. Die Erweiterung selbst ist natürlich eh der Hammer - so macht YT doch gleich noch mal mehr Spaß, ich liebe die Ambient-Beleuchtung. Kleiner Tipp: Lasst es bei 15 FPS manuell festgelegt, sonst kann es zu Problemen kommen (das war mein "Problem"). Der Unterschied ist visuell sowieso völlig egal. Top!
