  • f.lux icon

    f.lux

    Ever 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 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.

  • G.lux icon

    G.lux

    G.lux is an unofficial variation of F.lux. G.lux is an app that automatically changes the colour temperature of your browser as the sun goes down. Monitors are typically daylight balanced, which can interfere with your sleep cycle when using them after sunset. The human brain wants to be ‘awake’ when it sees daylight, so the idea here is that we can change the screen colour temperature at night to a “tungsten” or orange-balanced colour.
