When you open a bright website in a dark room such as Google.com, you will see that it brightens up your entire room. And even when the screen is still not on the maximum brightest level. And you can only get this experience with a bright and white background. If you are using a dark website such as YouTube Music, this doesn’t light up your room entirely. Above all, too much white light in our eyes is not healthy. And that must be changed.
When you visit today our official Turn Off the Lights website. You can get a Dark Mode style of our website. If you use the latest Safari Technology Preview web browser. And if your system appearance color is set to the dark mode option, then you will see that the Turn Off the Lights web page adapts to your system appearance color. The Light mode will be the white background for the web page. And the Dark mode will be a dark black background.
