Protect your eyes, and enable dark mode on any website! That is what the Night Eye developer said to the internet users. And with a high price for customers. Night Eye charges you a huge amount, 9$ yearly and 14$ yearly subscription model. With just only for 1 browser extension on Night Eye Firefox, Night Eye Safari, or Night Eye Opera. That still is with a lack of huge features for the users.
The bad premium experience Night Eye app is not even Open-Source such as the high-quality Turn Off the Lights browser extension. You will never know what it is doing in the background when browsing a new website. Which can lead to it being dangerous and untrustworthy.
At Turn Off the Lights, we want everyone to enjoy the best video and web experience. That is completely free, gratis, zero dot zero, for all modern web browsers. And we are loyal to helping everyone, even if you did not donate.
Avoid using the Night Eye app
1. Unfair Price for the users
Customers want freebies, including a free Dark Mode feature in their favorite web browser. Why pay for the Night Eye app that only works for 5 websites in the Lite version? As seen in the screenshot below.
And while you already can get it for free and can do much more with the Turn Off the Lights browser extension. That helps you to get a delightful web experience for your eyes. That is for all websites.
This is what the customers are saying about the Night Eye – Dark Mode product. As seen in the screenshot below.
The Night Eye Safari extension on iOS 15 asks for huge money for the macOS and iOS platforms. While you get all these features for free if you are using the Turn Off the Lights Safari extension for iOS 15, iOS 16, and iOS 17. That more than 2 million users already are using it today.
2. Heavy load on your computer processor
With the high price, you think you have better performance when you activate the Dark Mode. That is not true. It heavy loads your computer processor (CPU) and video card (GPU). That to the result of overhitting your personal computer. The result of bad programming and the use of not engineering the code quality, and avoid using the heavy use of the CSS WebKit filter. It is embarrassing to get such a software app online and ask for a money subscription.
At Turn Off the Lights, we engineer to set the colors to your personal dark color that you have set up on the Turn Off the Lights Options page. And when you toggle the Night Mode off, it returns back to the default website theme colors.
3. Not Open-Source
The Night Eye is pricey and it is not Open-Source but closed source. So you can never see the code what it is doing in the background.
4. Affiliate Network
The developer created his own Affiliate network. Which leads to more blog articles are sponsor content on the internet. And in Europe, you must show a label if it is a sponsored article. The Federal Trade Commission Act in the US and self-regulative provisions in Europe urge advertisers and endorsers, such as bloggers, to disclose any commercial relationship.
But this article (from Chrome Unboxed) is clearly a sponsored post for positive talk and no negative points. And no disclose message is showing up, see proof below:
On the Chromeunboxed sponsor article, you see this hyperlink referring to a campaign link (to know the source):
Source Chromeunboxed https://chromeunboxed.com/hello-darkness-night-eye-app-brings-full-dark-mode-and-more-to-the-web/
It uses the NightEye affiliate program, that tracks the user. So for each sale they make on the Chromeunboxed website, the owner of the Chromeunboxed earns 25% from each sale.
At Turn Off the Lights, we keep our work free and publicly available for all users on GitHub. And the code is not encrypted, it is all readable text line by line. So you are confident about the function of our code. And we take the privacy of our users very seriously. And there is no Google Analytics inside the browser extension to track your user browsing activities. We collect no personal information from you, as there is no login button. You install the Turn Off the Lights browser extension, and it instantly works as magic.
