    f.lux - Better lighting...for your computer

    ver notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow?

    Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen?

    During the day, computer screens look good—they're designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn't be looking at the sun.

    f.lux

    F.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer's display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.

    It's even possible that you're staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.

    It's quite good. Make sure you pick the right location and then adjust the settings according to the kind of light you have. For a few minutes, you'll be like but then you get used to it! Its useful because I have my brightness turned up because I can't see anything when its sunny but the same (high) brightness is hurting my eyes at night!

    Basically what this does is automatically changes your laptop's brightness?
