Turn distractions down and focus on your current task.
HazeOver automatically highlights the front app window by fading out all the background windows.Download Trial
Heavy multi-tasking kills your concentration. All that tweets, emails, chat messages and lolcats 😼 staring back at you from the background. They strive for your attention. And you only have that much of it.
Don’t let yourself drown in scores of open windows. Hiding, switching, looking for the right one, more hiding, more switching. Calm down, breathe in, breathe out, launch HazeOver and finally concentrate on what's you’ve been up to.
HazeOver automatically highlights an active window or app when you switch windows. The less important things gently fade away in the background, helping increase your productivity.
Set the hazing intensity and speed to your liking. Be it a soft dimming, an undemanding hint to focus on your workflow. Or a powerful dark background for outright dedication to your current task.
Ready to improve your workflow and comfort with HazeOver?
Change the shading color with a new option. Adjust background tint and brightness for better work at night. Having orange tint should reduce overall blue light emission without sacrificing color accuracy of the front window.

This program has redefined what I view as “comfortable” on my desktop, and it has become a permanent resident on my status bar. I rarely disable it, but love the fact that I can quickly and easily do so using the taskbar icon. It does exactly what it says. Five stars.
You don’t know how nice this is until you use it. It really does make concentrating on the given window easier; and yes, you always know what window you’re on. Glad I got this, highly recommend it.
App that makes you go, “Where have you been all my Mac life?”
This app has definitely helped with making my productive life easier. Let me tell you that it little popups are an annoyance to you, then this app will definitely help you concentrate on one thing at a time. It is now in my must-have list and should be in yours too!
