I've tried them all and this works the best. I hope this can and will be updated to web extensions.
Super helpful so thanks for this add-on.
My 2 cents: I'd love an option for "all websites". The "most" notion stays unclear to me.
You can toggle it with a context menu option, but I'd really prefer a toolbar button instead. Opacity can be set 0-10. This feels like too big of steps, 0-100 would be better. It doesn't activate on a tab loaded in the background, so I have to toggle it or reload the page after switching to that tab.
I hate pure white backgrounds and I can't find a better alternative, so rated 4/5 anyway.
I love this app, it's the only one of it's kind I've come across, I am SO glad my friends told me about it. The only problem I have is that the top of the browser is undimmed. This app is great if you're a stubborn chronic migraineur like me and likes to go online to distract the pain, and I'm able to do that without the painful light!
Great addons, thank you
Bad for reading, still a lot of eye strain.
A good add-on for reading will darken the background and lighten the text in order to create high contrast.
It is great that you have added the feature to blacklist a list of websites on which the addon will not act.
I think a whitelist i.e a list of websites on which the addon acts will be good too. The addon will not work on all websites, but will work only on the whitelisted websites.
This will make it much more useful to me and many others, who for example, want to dim only wikipedia, or only google, and so on....
As of version 1.3 the dimmer add-on operates in one of two modes. You can set it to ignore most sites, then use the right click menu on a web page to add specific domains (eg: wikipedia) to override the operating mode and apply the dimming.
***we really need a button to turn it on/off
* tabs button should be dimmed out too (firefox as a whole)
**and maybe if we right click that button it allow us to choose wich dim % we want
Very good add-on.
It would be nice if you could select the site this applies to, I visit a lot of sites with dark background at night, so those don't need any "dimming"
The dimming can now be disabled for specific domains through a right click context menu.
It does what is promised and does nice.
As I understood, this addon is mostly for fun and relaxing.
If I understood properly, I have few proposals.
1. To vary the opacity via addon manager is a little bit boring. It is better to have an icon that can be placed by user on any toolbar that will allow to switch on/off the opacity by left click and choose the opacity level by top-down meny with right click.
2. If this addon is for fun, it is worth to give the user ability to "play" with color overlay or even to choose a wallpaper that also can be used (with very low opacity) as overlay
Of course there are so many situations one wishes to dim the opacity of a website. Highly recommended!
I tested this add-on for two days (48 hrs). Maybe because of the opacity I had problems with one small detail. Standard the opacity is 60% but where can you vary this percentage?
Hi, thanks for the review.
You should be able to vary the opacity in the options screen. In my browser it's at Tools - Addons - Dimmer - Options.
I've updated the listing to include a screenshot of the options menu.
