The GLSL 1.20-1.19.4 mod allows you to install shaders for minecraft. Shaders is a “script” for the video card, allowing you to add different effects to the game, for example, change the lighting, texture mapping, reflection and refraction. This mod only adds support for shaders themselves shaders need to download separately.

Instead of installing 1.8.9, 1.7.10 and 1.9.4 it installs 1.6.4, 1.7.2, 1.7.10, and 1.8. I wanted to install GLSL for minecraft forge 1.8.9 but that apparently cannot happen.
