Summer is here, and so is Turn Off the Lights extension

School is out for the summer, and that means more time to see videos online or rent a YouTube movie.
But now you can focus the video with this Chrome Extension: Turn Off the Lights. It mean that the video part will show only on the current webpage. And the rest of the page will be dark.

Also it is possible to change the color of the darkness around the video, the opacity and even add a fade in or and fade out effect.

Example videos to try: [Lasgo - Tonight], [Basshunter - Saturday] and [Cadence - I Surrender]

Some key features from this release include:
  • Support HTML5 video
  • Option to a show a Dimness Level Bar when the lights are off
  • Autoplay on: Fade in effect when click on the play button
  • Autoplay on: Fade out effect when click on the pause button (or when the video ended)
  • Option to show the infobar below the YouTube page
  • Option to show the YouTube like & dislike buttons
  • Option to show the YouTube share buttons
  • Add keyboard shortcut (Ctrl + L) for turn the lights on or off
Website Developer
If you want to focus on you website also a div or other HTML elements.You can give for each element you want to focus this id name.

To read more how to make you website compatible with my extension, see the API for Webmaster.

If you already install this extension, then you use the latest version of my extension. If you are a beginner user of Google Chrome, you can install the extension from here.

Here i thanks also all my beta tester and current translators for his feedback and the help for this extension!

Back To Basic

We seen all the new great iPhone 4, and the video calling from Steve Jobs to Jony Ive. Also the iPhone 4 introduces a whole new way of multitasking and the organize of apps by using folders.

But Apple release also something else, Safari 5.
Few new features are the Safari Reader, a greater HTML5 Support, better performance, Bing Search and Extension.

Safari Extensions
It is a new way for developers to enhance and customize the browsing experience. Create buttons for the toolbar or make your own extension bar. Change the way web content appears. Add controls to web pages. Safari Extensions are built with web standards, so you can do it all using the power of HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript.

So i give it a try, and create one great extension for Safari. Turn Off the Lights extension.

It is a basic version of the Chrome extension ‘Turn Off the Lights’. Focus the video on YouTube, HTML5 video and other video sites. Later the Safari extension receive the same great features as the Chrome extension.
