f.lux– A Plugin To Save Your Eyes

A couple months ago I added a free, open source plugin to my Mac called f.lux that promises to relieve eye strain and insomnia caused by blue screen glare. It adjusts my screen’s color temperature based on the time of day to reproduce more natural lighting conditions.

It turns the whites on my screen to more of a peachy glow as I geek into the night. I haven’t noticed any performance hit on my MacBook Pro so I’m just going to tell myself that I’m adding years of good vision by using this app. Also works on Windows and Linux.
