Flux makes computer monitors adapt to the time of day, meaning that the monitor emits sunlight-like colors during the day and emits warmer colors at night. The goal is to help users fall asleep faster by reducing disturbances from artificial light.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Eases eye strain
Decreases color temperature at night, changing the normally fluorescent blue of an LCD monitor to a soft orange. Much easier on the eyes, especially in a low-light environment.
Pro Can help sleep better
Helps provide better sleep for more energy during the day.
Pro Subtle transition
The transition from daytime to nighttime color modes takes an hour by default and will detect your current timezone, meaning that it will happen in the background at sunset, often without you noticing.
Con Takes a while to get used to
After installing F.lux, the screen will look a lot more yellow. This takes about a week to fully get used to. You can ease into it by setting the color temps higher than the recommended defaults.
