Implement Night mode
The changing themes with Scheduled themes feature is good, but there should be total Night Mode that will reduce eye strain during night time using the browser.
- Keyboard shortcut/Quick Command to toggle
- Setting to control timing
- Use geo-location to automatically change themes, turn on/off night mode

I second the recommendation for f.lux. It is much better to handle this system wide than on a per application basis.

I don't think this is an issue that should be addressed by the browser itself but by the OS or a dedicated app so the blue light filter is universal across the system, not just when the browser is running.
The are apps that do this, as already mentioned. If you are a WIN10 user, this feature is already built into the system. It is called "Night Light" It features an schedule & the ability to set the color temp.
I think apple has implemented something similar too.

@venix Or use f.lux that work on both systems (and is better).

It would be great to have this built in. I use the Dark Reader extension which works amazingly to smartly invert content: it has shortcut, quick toggle, whitelist and blacklists, and several tweaks. Unfortunately can't set it to auto change on schedule. Similar functionality built in would be extremely good to minimize dependence on extensions.

I think inverting colors is way better for reducing eye strain than using a blue filter.

I think we don't really need such feature at this point since all Windows 10 machines and some Linux distributions already allow you to switch your system to Night Mode that filters out blue light generated by your monitor. Also, I would like to point out that F.lux is NOT better than Windows 10 night time filter by itself. F.lux allows for better customization but Windows 10 options would be enough for the majority of users, but they both do their primary job (filtering blue light) equally good.
