f.lux adapts the color of your computer's display to the time of day. It makes it eye-friendly at night and bright like sunlight during the day. f.lux makes your computer screen look like the room you're in, all the time. When the sun sets, it makes your computer screen to be no brighter than the indoor lights. In the morning, it makes things look bright again. Put in the info about what kind of lighting you have, and where you live - this is all needed for the program to work the right way. The control over your PC display color tone is performed automatically by f.lux.

donkeybrain Here's an honest bit of distasteful information (for some) - I smoke Meth, so I can and have spent up to 48 hours straight looking at a pc screen at full brightness/gaming etc.

f.lux literally is gives me less thing to worry about - my eyes stay un-strained and relatively relaxed. Without it I get a consistent pain/irritation that slowly builds and builds.

Sad story, but whatever, thanks f.lux - just thought you should know you're helping out.

menace97 Excellent software. Highly recommended for those working late at night, trying to limit the 'blue light' that can affect the quality of your sleep. The reason for leaving 1 Star off, is because I work in Graphic Design where color accuracy is key. It is simple enough to temporarily turn off f.lux with one click for one hour, but I would truly love to see something implemented that can be triggered by launching Photoshop, for example, that f.lux would automatically revert to default coloring/lighting. I've forgotten to turn if on/off too many times and I've been disappointed that I didn't catch it at the time.

That is strangely, one of the great things about f.lux - that after the initial oddity of everything being shifted in colors at different times of the day... after a while, your body simply gets used to it and you really don't even notice it working in the background. I has been a lifesaver for my eyes while doing late-night projects, and found myself naturally getting tired earlier than I would've before - subtle, but very effective!

I look forward to more improvements and additions to the software in the future. I hope they don't forget about Windows users, as it seems (and I may be wrong) that much of the attention is focused on the Mac community in terms of improvements and updates.
