Essential things experience in 2018

Blink blink… and the year is almost on his end. It was an ultimate year with amazing updates for Turn Off the Lights. In the year 2018, you saw tremendous improvements in design and user experience. And we can’t wait for the 2019 updates that will blow you away. Here a short overview from Turn Off the Lights software update in the year 2018:

The Essential new things for Browser users

In April 2018 we created The Biggest Ultimate update for our web users. The Turn Off the Lights Options has a completely different user interface, that is simple and responsive in all screen size (desktop, tablet, and mobile). That you experience the YouTube experience even better.
And with the support of the Dark Mode options page, so you see your settings in a not bright page. But a darker theme that makes it more comfortable for your eyes.

May 2018, we remember the Global Accessibility Awareness Day, that disability users need a helpful tool, so they can experience the web in a less fearful way.

In September 2018, it is Google birthday month but also to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Google Chrome web browser.

October 2018, the Apple Safari extension received the same engine update, with the Double Click menu to easily change the dark layer opacity. And to enable quickly the Night Mode feature (custom panel to choose your own background, text, and hyperlink color).

November 2018, the American Education week, use this tool for special needs students. Here we highlighted a teacher review about the use of our Turn Off the Lights Chrome extension. And recommended you to use it too.

The Essential new things for Desktop users

In June 2018, we did the Big Ultimate update for the desktop users. The screen dimmer preference page has an Acrylic material theme. So it feels more together with the latest Windows 10 coherent and fluent design. The Turn Off the Lights for Desktop app is the only unique and best screen dimmer for Windows 10 users.

It is has a Responsive Layout, so the preference page match with your current open screen size. And easy to find your setting with the search box in the navigation bar.

And you Turn Off the Lights for Desktop settings are saved in the cloud, so whenever you login in your Microsoft Surface or other Windows devices. You get the same experience on each device. The best and most powerful app to dims your screen on Windows 10.

Thank You

We would like to thank all our users, for his feedback, contributions, and support. It is always a pleasure to improve our work, and we are always here to make this small and free nifty browser extension better each update. That on your user request. Thank you and we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2019!
