Tired of having a glaring computer screen in the middle of the night but hate having to keep adjusting the screen brightness all the time? F.lux might be able to help you with that.
This nifty program works by automatically adjusting your screen’s brightness setting throughout the day. With this program, you can say goodbye to glaring bright screens which strain the eye especially if you work at night.
The program works on a Windows, Mac and Linux system.
By automating your screen brightness, the program adjusts the settings according to the time of day that you are working. Thus, it pretty much gives you ample light, matching the brightness during the morning time while slowly dimming the screen as you work throughout the night.
You can set up your main preference of brightness and darkness so that it will simply follow. One thing you need to do though is enter your current location’s latitude. You can easily view the dimming effect that will happen in the 24 hour period by clicking on the sun icon.
Overall, the program’s relevance really depends on how much time you spend in front of your computer and whether you get ample lighting or not. It’s perfect for those who do have problems with the lighting as they work and don’t want to be bothered having to adjust brightness in their screens every now and then.
