Today, a new Turn Off the Lights extension for Microsoft Edge appears at Windows Store. WalkingCat (@h0x0d) tweeted about the new Edge extension. As the name suggest the extension allows users to dim everything on their screen except for HTML5 videos they’re watching.
The entire page will be fading to dark, so you can watch the videos as if you were in the cinema. With a single click on the lamp button, the page will fade to dark. And automatically focus on the video. By clicking on it again, the page will return to normal. Turn Off the Lights is a lightweight and useful add-in designed for a more comfortable watching experience. It works for all known video sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Hulu, Metacafe, YouKu, etc. Not only this but these extensions are compatible with Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Edge, Maxthon and Yandex web browsers.
