Are the YouTube videos you are watching take up too much CPU, or is the YouTube videos stutter, or even worse, it eat your battery life very quickly, or you can fry an egg on your laptop. If you got an old computer, the YouTube performance is not very well on this kind of (old) hardware. Even today, more YouTubers have uploaded the 60fps videos to YouTube.

You as a user can fix this easily with one checkbox. So its use back the Standard Frame Rate of 30fps back on all your YouTube videos (and embedded YouTube players). Open the Turn Off the Lights options page -> Basics tab. Just right of the AutoHD feature, enable the option “Block 60fps”. And now it will play them back more smoothly.

When it’s night you can convert a website to a darker theme. That’s where the Night Mode feature is here.
Now in the Turn Off the Lights options page you can also change the color of all the hyperlinks in the Night Mode. So you can see the working hyperlinks on your favourite website. See example here below of the Google News website.
