@_paval_agarkov This is a great idea, I just dowloaded it. Pretty cool to view Product Hunt in night mode 😎

for ProductHunt it has sense to increase background (fond) images brightness since they do use background images as images

Looks cool and is something I would use a lot. Question: How does this differ from f.lux?
Pavel AgarkovMaker@_pavel_agarkov · Full-stack developer
F.lux for OS replaces blue color with red for the entire operating system. F.lux browser extension does pretty much the same for all websites by applying filter that replaces blue color with red. Midnight Lizard instead individually process every single element on the web page and compute the way how this particular element should be changed to achieve desire contrast and at the same time remove blue color from it if blue filter is activated.

Any better than Dark Reader from Chrome?
Pavel AgarkovMaker@_pavel_agarkov · Full-stack developer
Dark Reader is not very different from all other extensions that use filters to invert pages. But there are a lot of pages where you might have header, side bar or something else with dark background. As you can imagine after inversion these areas will be bright. Midnight Lizard process every single element, analyzes it colors and calculates new colors independently. This way it will keep dark areas dark or make them even darker. Also Midnight Lizard has a lot of other options aside from night mode like high contrast, grayscale and red-shift/blue-filter and options to precisely control how different parts of a page will be processed (like background, text, links and images).
