Staring at a bright white screen is hard on our eyes. By changing my background from white to grey (#c7c6c6) I’m reducing stress on your eyes and enhancing your experience on MichaelPieracci.com.
We are spending more and more time looking at computer screens and scrolling to no end. Simple changes like this will make a huge impact on users.
The application f.lux works on your Mac and adjusts the colors during the night hours. Think of it as dimming the lights in your apartment as you wind down for the evening. The application warms the colors on your screen during evening hours so your eyes and brain can relax in the low light while you stare at the screen. Once installed you’ll be able to adjust how much the screen changes, as well as easily disabling it for times when you need true colors on screen.
