f.lux

Adjusts your computer's display to adapt to the time of day

Ish Jindal- Founder, Tars
A lot of people have asked me why my mac screen looks different :)
Ryan Hoover- Founder, Product Hunt
Not sure how well-known f.lux is but it's a must-download for any Mac or Windows user. It automatically dims your computer screen in the evening to avoid eye strain. Try it for a week and you'll wonder how you lived without it. 🌚🌞
Daniel Georgiev- C++ Programmer. Founder of Iris
I found that f.lux was missing a lot of things I needed for eye protection. For example scheduling of the brightness and using custom time for the timer. Also setting custom transition duration and using disable it per monitor. 2 years ago I started creating my alternative to f.lux called Iris (https://iristech.co) and I can say that Iris is now 10 times… See more

This installment of our Accessibility Activists column is an interview with Alexander Shutov, creator of Dark Reader, a Chrome plugin that adjusts the color contrast in your browser to make it more readable.

CSS filters faithfully served us since 2014. The idea of inverting a web page contents preserving colors hue quickly gained it's popularity. The solution was fast and simple, but several problems were introduced:

The first software I install on every PC. I can't live without automatic blue light and brightness reduction

Millions of years ago people lived in sync with nature. Yes, they were dying somehow every day from fever, but life was good, sort of. When we lived in caves we didn't have light bulbs and this somehow helped our circadian clocks to stay on track with the natural day and night cycles of the Sun.

The interesting thing about monitors is that they should be like the Sun. The second interesting thing about monitors is that they should be like a lightbulb. They failed at both of this... Monitors are like the Sun. They emit all colors of the rainbow but as you can guess it's probably not so normal to look at the Sun at night.

Like many others I'd been using f.lux, the popular anti-insomnia blue light filter app, to reduce computer vision syndrome (CVS) caused by blue light. f.lux had been the best in its superior approach to filtering blue light. Iris is the novel blue light filter app designed specifically to reduce computer eye strain.
Iristech
F.lux is a popular blue light reduction program, but I personally hated several things about this program. When I started to have eye problems in 2015 I wanted to be able to manually control the blue light of my screen.
