What is dimmer?

'Dimmer' is a Firefox add-on specifically designed to control the brightness of your webpages. Even while in dark mode, certain bright images or videos can strain your eyes. 'Dimmer' combats this by adding a dark overlay to everything on your page, thereby dimming the overall bright elements and ensuring comfortable and safe browsing.
