  • (2020-02-26) Justin Maestri: Reader View offers a simple but refined extension for Chrome, that makes reading much more comfortable on your eyes. Additionally, they even took the time to make links appear in a soft pallet of colors that again are very pleasing to the eye. Five stars!

  • (2020-02-18) N P: This is amazing extension. It has changed my experience surfing the web I am reading so much so easily. It is the only reading app that allows you to read text using the width of the monitor. Thank you!
  • (2020-02-18) Asia: This extension is a godsend when I'm forced to use chrome! It's very similar to firefox's built in reader.

  • (2020-02-09) Александр Кузнецов: Давно искал что-то подобное. Для Хрома незаменимое дополнение. Спасибо.
  • (2020-02-09) Paweł Gumiela: Great extension. The only problem I found so far was related to stop of TTS mechanism when particular symbols are encountered, like '[edit]' on Wikipedia pages. But, still, it is possible to skip problematic parts and move forward so no big deal.
  • (2020-02-08) Ariel Lopez: Great for minimizing clutter when wanting to print a webpage. Love the feature of hiding images.
  • (2020-02-06) Samik Sengupta: A must have for all those who spends a lot of hours consuming web content.
  • (2020-02-04) Wang Xinyuan: I found this excellent extension when Google removed the built-in reader mode in Chrome. Now I rely on it heavily since I got a weaker sight and sometimes have to use smaller screens on laptops. Some websites are just mean to harm your eyes when they build a layout with background and text colors so similar to each other. Can't imagine how can I read those articles if there was no extensions like this.

  • (2020-01-20) Ricknator: Thank you, chrome removed distill feature and this works nicely in its stead.
  • (2020-01-14) Shannon M: exactly what I was looking for!
  • (2020-01-11) Pritesh: After shutdown, extension stop working. After opening again I have to remove extension and add it again to use it. Everything else in this id very good.

    Where the GDPR privacy policy warning is there, you just want to import it, not the real Web site! :-(
