Turn Off the Lights is a browser extension that lets users obscure everything on their screen except the Flash or HTML5 video they're watching, minimizing distractions and making for a more pleasant viewing experience for the internet users.
A lamp icon is displayed in the browser menu bar when a video is detected, and users click on the gray lamp icon to make the screen surrounding the video fade. Clicking outside the video restores the rest of the screen. Users can adjust the opacity of the screen blocking and select a color other than black if desired. The extension can also be set to dim the screen automatically, and there are a variety of YouTube-specific features as well to bring an object to front. A keyboard shortcut gives users quick access to the program's services
