Brightness Applet Works Poorly on Sylvia 18.3

I was very pleased to see the Brightness and gamma applet. I have never been able to control the brightness well even with the tv remote settings till now. :D

Right click on the panel, then click Add applets to the panel. If you don't see the applet you are looking for, click Download. Lots of good applets there to choose from.

Is it not a new feature? I do not remember it in 18.2 Cinnamon.

After using this extension for some time I have found that it is not as useful as I first thought. After only a small amount of dimming the text becomes hard to read. I find it useful for full dimming at night when I am not using it and the photo slideshow still looks good. I am editing the post title.
