Why does it need my 1 permission to read web page content on Safari?

That is the default permission warning text that you see is on all Safari extensions. That is also visible for the Adblocker, Evernote, Coupon Shopper, Translate, etc. Safari extensions. Apple has only an API to enable it on 1 website or to enable the JavaScript function on all websites. And the Turn Off the Lights Browser extension is the ultimate tool for all websites, so it is available for all websites. And you can get the best web experience in a dark interface and enjoy the video you are watching on YouTube or any other video platform.
