[How To] Dim Youtube Background When Watching Video!
This is something I've wanted from Youtube for a long time... The ability to darken the page surrounding your video!
I did this using Firefox and more importantly - Grease Monkey!
Grease monkey is a fabulous add-on in Firefox that lets you run custom user scripts. Scripts are very useful, and allow you to custom-tailor your browsing experience.
1. Start by getting and installing Grease Monkey. Link above ^
2.With Grease Monkey installed, install THIS USER SCRIPT. Here's the link to the script's page.
To use this add-on simply restart firefox and navigate to any video on youtube. You'll notice a new "Lights out" button as shown below:
This add-on allows for two levels of darkness. Simply click the dim button twice to cycle through:

cool idea, but why not just full screen?
I thought thats what that light switch they just put in did. XD
Full screen is fine, but for low quality videos, it destroys quality. This is better for on the fly videos in my opinion.
