Deep integration with the built-in dark themes of some websites.
Some websites have already started developing their own dark themes such as YouTube , Twitter, Reddit and others.

To give you the best dark mode experience, we developed a deep integration with those websites. It allows you to control the dark theme of YouTube (and others) directly from the extension.

The control over the deep integration consists of 3 modes:

* Deep integration - Night Eye overrides the settings on the website (YouTube for example). Regardless of what you set up as a theme directly on the website, the selected mode in Night Eye will override it. In other words, you can control the YouTube (and others) theme directly from Night Eye.

* Night Eye dark - Instead of using the built-in theme, Night Eye will apply its own algorithm to convert the pages dark.

* Disabled - The extension will not convert nor control the built-in themes of the websites.
2Can I apply all filters at once?
In Dark mode all filters can be applied at once, but the end result highly depends on the adjustments made by the user.

In Filtered mode the filters for Images and color changes are not available. The rest can be pplied simultaneously.
3Are there any available shortcuts?
Yes, you can switch between Dark mode and Normal mode and of course disable and enable the extension.

For Windows and Linux
Alt+Shift+2 - Switch between Dark Mode and Normal Mode
Alt+Shift+3 - Disable/Enable the extension

For macOS
Cmd+Shift+2 - Switch between Dark Mode and Normal Mode
Cmd+Shift+3 - Disable/Enable the extension

OS / Browser color scheme integration
It allows you to sync Night Eye with your OS/Browser Color scheme.OS Color Schemes

* For macOS you can control your OS Color scheme from System Preferences -> General -> Appearances

If it is set to Dark - every website that you visit will be presented in Dark mode. Until the integration is enabled, you cannot manually adjust each page.
If it is set to Light - every website that you visit will be presented in Normal mode. Until the integration is enabled, you cannot manually adjust each page.
If it is set to Auto - the OS color scheme will adjust from Light to Dark and it will change the Night Eye from Normal mode to Dark mode respectively.*For Windows you can set the preferred Color scheme from Settings -> Personalisation -> Colors If it is set to Dark - every website that you visit will be presented in Dark mode. Until the integration is enabled, you cannot manually adjust each page.
If it is set to Light - every website that you visit will be presented in Normal mode. Until the integration is enabled, you cannot manually adjust each page.

Having both Night Eye Schedule and OS/Browser scheme enabled In case you have both options enabled, they will run simultaneously. For example if your schedule is set to deactivate Night Eye from 10:00 - 20:00, during the rest of the time Night Eye will sync with your current OS/Browser color scheme.

Browser Color Schemes

* Chrome Color scheme
If you change your Chrome color scheme - it will override your current OS color scheme. For example when Chrome color scheme is set to dark, but your OS is Light - Night Eye will run Dark Mode on all websites.

* Opera Color scheme
If you change your Opera color scheme - it will override your current OS color scheme. For example when Opera color scheme is set to dark, but your OS is Light - Night Eye will run Dark Mode on all websites.

* Night Eye Schedule and OS/Browser integration
In case you set a Night Eye Schedule and have enabled OS/Browser color scheme integration, the latter will override the former.

How to disable OS/Browser color scheme integration
Open the extension window -> Settings -> Locate the feature and set it to Disabled

Security

1What data are you monitoring from the visited pages?
We don't process nor store any data on our servers.
Night Eye analyses in real time the page elements, but not the content.
Night Eye also checks small pictures (icons) and analyses them color wise only - pixel by pixel, without making conclusions for the whole picture of the object.
2Do you collect personal information?
No, no personal information is being collected.
We only keep the settings the user has adjusted for each website such as colors, contrast and etc.
Those are settings for the specific website and NO information is being collected for visiting it.

We only store the URL of a website for which the user has switched Night Eye into Normal mode. This means that for the specific website there are some issues in Dark mode. We only store the URL (for example medium.com) and will try to fix it with the next update of the extension to improve your experience with it.
3How are the pictures processed ?
The only pictures processed by Night Eye are small sized ones:
  • - icons
  • - repeated background
  • - other small pictures

They are being analysed pixel by pixel and conclusions made for their color structure but not content.

If it is necessary, the colors are being changed, if not, Night Eye leaves the pictures as they are.

2Why some websites are unaffected by Night Eye?
There are 2 types that Night Eye does not support:1. There are websites on which Night Eye does not work properly and we are doing our best to reduce this number. For example Google Docs is one of them.

2. Other websites that are built via older technologies and consist of numerous background images, pictures as buttons and etc.

Please contact us via the built in support system in the extension for such websites and we will do our best to solve them, if it is technically possible.
3Why there are white spots on the websites?
This is due to light images that are too big to be analysed and converted.
4There are icons that are hard to be seen.
The reason is that some websites use different techniques of showing the icons - we are constantly updating Night Eye and integrating new methods in order to process them properly.

At the moment the extension cannot convert icons that are sitting on large image. In this case Night Eye does not analyse the image and the icons are left unprocessed as well.
5Why the messaging (text fields such as forms) field is white?
There are browser restrictions that cannot be overcame. Some text fields are extremely unique and we are working on solving them.
6Some backgrounds do not change.
The reason is that they are consited of large image/images that are too big to be analysed.
7There is unreadable text
This can happen when there is a text sitting on top of large image. In this case Night Eye changes the color of the text, but leaves the image as it is.

Please contact us via the built in support system in the extension for such websites and we will do our best to solve them, if it is technically possible.
