Turn Off the Lights
View web video more easily with Turn Off the Lights

One of the problems with online videos sites such as YouTube is that while there is a great of choice for content, there are also a lot of distractions on the page. In addition to the video you want to watch, it is likely that the page you are viewing is filled with other content such as recommended links, comments and much more. Turn Off the Lights is a free addon for Chrome and Firefox that can be used to make it easier to focus on videos.

The extension works by turning your web browser into a cinema screen, and just as the lights are dimmed at the theatre when you’re watching a movie, so the extension dims the lights in your web browser. What this means in practice is that all of the unnecessary page furniture is dimmed so it is far less of a distraction while the video you want to watch is highlighted so that it stands out better.

This is a fairly simple extension, but it serves its purpose well and provides you with a range of customization options. You can choose to make the screen automatically darken whenever the play button is hit on a video, or you can stick with using the manual option as and when you need it. If you find that the screen dims too much or not enough, you can adjust the level to suit you liking.

You can also choose to highlight videos using custom colors and you can also use the extension in conjunction with image sharing websites in very much the same way. If you have found that web pages make it too difficult to concentrate on the content you want to see, this is an excellent extension that does its job amazingly well.

What's new in 4.1.4.0 (see changelog for more)?

+ Improvement video detection only on z-index position absolute/relative/static

Verdict:

If you’re a fan of online video, this is a great, simple way to remove on-screen distractions.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.124

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.124 

- New privacy settings allow you to control who can add you to groups. Admins will have the option of sending you a private invite instead. Go to Settings > Account > Privacy > Groups to get started.
- Added call waiting support so you can choose to accept an incoming WhatsApp call while you're already on another call.
- Updated Chats screen design to make it easier to quickly scan your messages.
- You can now send messages directly from the Braille keyboard when using VoiceOver mode.
