    This screen is unnecessarily bright in total darkness- is there a better screen brightness app that can bring the backlight down more than the settings allow?
    This should help conserve battery too, because the screen is always 2-3 times the cause of battery depletion.

    Many apps on the market. You can try "brightness level" as well as others which should allow you to customize the levels to a greater extent.

    I just discovered this nifty app for lowering the brightness past the levels allowed by the phone itself:

    Screen Filter

    It even has a Locale/Tasker plugin!

    Anyone know of one that will force the browser brightness to match the global setting?

    I really don't understand why the browser has its own brightness setting independent of (and that overrides) the global setting.

    Ugh, I can't stand this "feature" either. I've finally just switched to an alternate browser cuz of this.

    Did that actually work?

    I use Opera Mini and the browser brightness resets to bright, even when I have Screen Filter enabled. Although the prob is a little weird. The first time I enable Mini, Screen Filter disables or Opera Mini disables it, I can't tell which. Then if I RE-enable screen filter then screen filter stays enabled until I disable. So N=1 plus Browser = Very Bright/Screen Filter disabled. N=2+ plus browser plus RE-enabled screen filter, screen filter stays on until disabled.

    What's up with that?

    Using the quick setttings app allows you to adjust brightness easily. I always keep brighness at O and auto off unless I am outside in the sunlight.

    You need Tasker for the plugin. More accurately, screen filter is now a plugin for Tasker.
