Screen Shader - F.lux for Chrome - Chrome Web Store
[See also: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/glux/hinolicfmhnjadpggledmhnffommefaf?hl=en-US ]

"Shades Chrome to a soothing orange color to decrease eye-strain, eye fatigue and to appease your brain's day/night cycle.
Do your eyes a favor! Install Screen Shader!

Screen Shader is a chrome extension for anyone that automagically changes the color of your screen to match up with daylight cycles in your timezone. Computer displays produce white and blue light which can irritate your eyes and interfere with your sleeping cycle. Screen Shader is designed to tint the screen a “cozy” orange color to reduce eye-strain, eye fatigue, and restore day/night balance, while also providing a wide variety of settings for everyone's different tastes!

Q: Why do i need this? Can’t i simply change the luminosity of my screen?
A: Changing the luminosity does not remove white and blue light from your display. Those colors are still unnatural and will irritate your eyes, even if dimmed. A full day in front of your computer screen can wreak havoc upon your melatonin cycle and internal clock. The unnatural light can also harm your eye retina. Screen Shader is designed to considerably reduce these effects by eliminating enough white and blue light to provide you with the best browsing experience and eye comfort.

✓Screen Shader includes a huge array of settings including:
➤ Custom day and night shade
➤ Custom transition phase
➤ Custom colors
➤ Custom screen darkening
➤ Full screen mode
➤ Shaded scrollbar
➤ Increased contrast, darkening, and hardlight modes.
➤ A cool color-changing icon
➤ Custom shades for specific urls

✓Screen Shader includes these keyboard shortcuts:
➤ CTRL SHIFT UP to increase shade
➤ CTRL SHIFT DOWN to decrease shade
➤ CTRL SHIFT s to turn off the shade
➤ And many more! Edit them in the menu.

✓Screen Shader does not require any page reloads. It works instantly on all your tabs!

✓Screen Shader also shades just about anything fullscreen(not flash and java applications though)!

✓Screen Shader is continually tested on windows, mac, and chrome OS, and is constantly being bugfixed and updated with input from its users. Send me an email, or comment here. I'll usually reply in a day or two :)

Q: Why not G.lux?
A: Because G.lux has none of the many features mentioned above!

Q: But I already have F.lux.
A: Well, Screen Shader provides quite a few more options and keyboard shortcuts. Try using both and forget about tired eyes! It sure works well for me ;)

Q: Help! It doesn't work with fullscreen flash games, hulu, etc.
A: Flash and java objects are pesky. When they go fullscreen they ignore all css/html applied to the page. So here is what you can do:

Use the Hulu Easy Pop Out extension and right click on a thumbnail to open a fullscreen Hulu player with shade.

For other sites you can use an extension like MediaPlus to make the video or game fit the size of your screen without going into fullscreen and losing its shade.

Update log:

Big speed optimization for bug fixing subsystem.

Wrote a global system that manages the shade on every tab at the same time

Uploaded to web store. yay :D

Someone Made an Ad Blocker But for Cryptocurrency Mining - Motherboard
Using website code to hijack computers in order to mine digital currencies like Bitcoin isn't new, but a popular site like The Pirate Bay springing it on users without telling them first is concerning. It's a fact now that at least one big website had no problem doing this, and there may be others who are surreptitiously experimenting with this nascent revenue model. The Pirate Bay used a tool called Coin Hive to hijack visitors' browsers, and it's not clear how many customers Coin Hive has. But it does indeed have customers. If you're already using an ad blocker to block banners, you sure as hell want to block in-browser cryptocurrency miners.

Thankfully, Scotland-based programmer Rafael Keramidas has got us all covered. On Saturday, he released a very simple Chrome extension called No Coin that blocks cryptocurrency miners on web pages. It works like an ad blocker and lets you disable or enable blacklisted URLs. Right now, that list only blocks Coin Hive products. And yes, you could simply add coin miner URLs to your existing ad blocker yourself, but that's work, and work sucks. You might also be the type of person who doesn't have a problem with ads but doesn't like the idea of a site using your computer to mine.
