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

    My Windows machine is primarily used for gaming, but that doesn't stop me from having f.lux installed.

      Honestly, if I was to buy a new computer, this is the first thing I would download.

      Although Apple and Google have integrated blue light filters into their operating systems, they still haven't matched the capabilities that f.lux offers. f.lux gives you more control over the filter strength and once setup, you don't need to touch.

      I have been using this since it first showed up on Product Hunt. It's probably my most used 'app' even though I barely ever interact with it. Once I found my optimal settings, I don't think I've opened the app itself more than a handful of times. It works as advertised most of the time. The only time I've had issues is when using it on external displays with Linux. Since it's my secondary device, it's not been much of a problem though.

  2. The best MYSQL IDE for DBAs and It runs under Windows.
    This is my favorite tool for working with MySQL
    I've been using this tool for about 1 year, recommend it!
  3. Resolve gives you pro-grade video editing tools for free. There's vanilla Resolve and Resolve Studio, which adds 4K support and a few other extras. Definitely worth checking out if you need a powerful alternative to Premiere.

    Some 10 years back, when i used to run Windows, This was my most favorite application. Just searching for it brought back memories. The time when the ability to visualize your music with the AVS plugin in winamp was a transcendental feeling. That was the first time, i felt that we are in a next stage of the race among humans.

    A great browser for Windows. Definitely surpasses Edge, Firefox and Chrome - for me.

      I really likes the bubbles representing websites, the playful animations and the widget with playing videos, vertical toolbars optimize the use of space for 16:10 screens.

    • I am loving the experience of a very different kind of browser, maybe this is the future, i dont know but i like it very much

      I want you guys to feel that youre doing a great work pushing the boundaries of ux design! Thank you!

      Holy bad software. Supper laggy itself, brought the system to a crawl on OSX. 2 monitors made it absolutely unusable. Does not play nice at all if f.lux is already installed. I uninstalled and went straight back to f.lux which does a lot less but better.
