Automatically summarize any article, text, document, webpage or essay in a click.
Hi 👋 TLDR This is a chrome extension (+ web app) that can take a painfully long piece of text and sum it up into five key bullet points using the power of NLP. There's so much content out there but too little time to read. So many times, it happens that there's a long article that we're interested in, but we don't really feel like scouring through it to extract relevant information from it. TLDR This is a simple tool that can come in handy at that time by helping you spend less time reading counterproductive stuff and more on doing valuable work. Steps to get cracking - Just click the "TL;DR" button in Chrome's toolbar on a webpage which you'd like summarized and within a few seconds you'll get the <5 sentence summary right there.
- (2020-10-19) Heather Lo: Great tool to get a quick summary of a page. Awesome for SEOs to see if content is targeted enough
- (2020-10-02) Ryan Tsang: it's sometimes useful but can't handle articles that are too long since it's not actually summarizing, just picking out main sentences to let you have an idea of what it's talking about
- (2020-04-06) Nagy Tamás: Extracts license information only from a wikipedia page (wikiwand), even with the premium/advanced BS, but asks for money right away...
- (2020-02-06) Scitlec Notsob: Would like the possibility to view the key phrase that TLDR produces 'in context', i.e. within the web page, as highlights.
- (2019-12-23) Douglass Hatcher: Wow. It does what it says it'll do: summarize any article or piece of content into 5 bullets. Use it as your own personal quick study tool of an article. Use it in a post on social media to provide highlights of an article to entice people to click through. Awesome.

- (2019-09-29) Xavier Paredes: Giving this extension 3 stars to give it the benefit of the doubt since I just installed it and it's possible that I'm either doing something wrong or the page I'm trying to distill is just not compatible. When I try using it on the page below, I just see the animated icon and it never goes past this. https://blog.freelancersunion.org/2019/09/26/net-90-payment-is-a-policy-that-freelancers-cant-afford/?utm_source=Freelancers+Union+List&utm_campaign=48b2db3ded-Newsletter-9-26-2019_National&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_de7ca13e56-48b2db3ded-106727781&mc_cid=48b2db3ded&mc_eid=63f79cd9ba Any idea why it isn't working? Thanks
- (2019-09-27) Koba Kobayashi: The extension worked so well and I really loved this extension, undoubtedly worth 5 stars, this changed how I read saved for later articles because I don't have to read all of them wit this. But by now this extension no longer works and the site was also unable to reach. I'm so disappointed with this. I hope this extension will be re-activated and the site get back to accessible.
- (2019-09-09) Mijo Džalto: TLDR; I love it.
- (2019-09-06) Kerem Kayacan: It does a good job selecting the important sentences. We should be able to select how long the summary will be. I might want to read 10-sentence summaries for some articles.
- (2019-07-30) Kevin Smith: The tech itself is decade old and most of the time the summarization doesn't capture the real important content.
- (2019-07-29) scott ashley: most simplicity ever!
- (2019-07-29) Shahriar Yazdipour: Best for lazy people like me
- (2019-07-28) Mike: Absolutely awesome. Simple and single purpose extension. Love it
- (2019-07-28) Alec Dewitz: Awesome app!! Just open an article, click the extension and BOOM! Summary.
- (2019-09-28, v:1.0.4) ajay vaidya: Doesn't work with Wired.com
Hi, I tried to summarize an article on Wired.com but it didn't work. I did click on the app. Can someone please help me?
